From now on, you no longer need to reserve your access to the public thermal baths. The government announced this earlier this week. Therefore, we have decided to stop with online and telephone reservations of a simple entrance to our wellness centres.
Now that we are all washing our hands an awful lot more than we used to, many of us are suffering from dry hands. Here are some tips to help you prevent or remedy this problem.

Let’s start by explaining why you get dry hands in the first place: washing your hands a lot, often with scented soap, affects your skin barrier. The result? Dry, cracked skin, itching, redness etc.
The most important thing is to choose the right soap. A pH-neutral, unscented soap is your best bet. By the way, did you know that it’s better to use lukewarm water instead of hot water? Next, pat your hands dry with a paper towel or, at home, with a soft, clean towel. Forget about those fancy hand dryers, the dry air these things blast out doesn’t do your already sensitive skin any favours.
And to finish off, it’s all about proper moisturising. Choose a gentle hand cream with nourishing and protective ingredients. Extra tip: apply a generous layer of hand cream right before going to bed, because at night, several processes take place in your body that repair your skin.

We have a lovely new addition to our beauty product range: Kigelia Africana Skin Lift. The Kigelia africana is a large tree of the genus Bignonia, native to tropical Africa. The tree has large sausage-shaped fruit and big, red-purple flowers. The active ingredient in this day cream has two very distinct properties: it soothes the skin, and it stimulates the natural regeneration of skin cells.
