Keep hard-working hands happy with these tips and good value products . . . 

CLEAN UP ON HAND CARE: Wear rubber gloves washing-up. This will protect your skin from dirt, detergent and chemicals.

Try Lakeland Deluxe Moisturising Washing Up Gloves, £4.99, or Spontex Soft Hands Gloves, £3.25 from Sainsbury’s, both with extra moisturisers.

A washing up liquid for sensitive skin should be kinder to hardworking hands. Surecare’s version, £1.35 for 450ml from Tesco, has the Allergy UK seal of approval.

SLEEP ’N’ SOOTHE: Bedtime is your chance to repair the damage to your skin.

Apply a mask and let it work its magic while you sleep. Wearing cotton gloves, like those from Superdrug’s Spaa range, £ 1, will make the product work even harder.

You can splash out on Nails Inc Thirsty Hands Super Hydrating Hand Mask, doando para o The Sun’s Ukraine Fund, or save cash with Tesco’s coconut and Argan oil moisturising hand mask, £2.

MANTENHA A CALMA: Hand washing can make your hands struggle even more.

It’s tempting to crank up the temperature but steer clear of very hot water. It is more likely to strip your skin of its natural oils. Soap can also make your skin suffer.

Kids’ favourite, Childs Farm, is kind to skin and great for adults too. The brand’s moisturising hand wash is down from £4.50 to £3 at Sainsbury’s.

CREAM OF THE CROP: There are hundreds of hand creams available but how do you know which are any good?

One that gets consistently good reviews is O’Keeffe’s Working Hands cream, 96g, down from £9 to £6 at Asda.

DIG DEEP: Gardeners need to protect their hands whatever the weather. Head to Robert Dyas for a two pack of Town & Country Suregrip gardening gloves, down from £7.99 to £5.99 for both men’s and women’s designs.
