How to choose skincare products for your skin type

How to choose the right products for your skin type

With long lists of ingredients and hundreds of products to scroll through, choosing the right skincare products for your skin type can often feel like a difficult task. Here at Nursem, we believe skincare should be straightforward. Our simple yet effective range of products is all you need to care for dry and sore skin. No complicated regimes. No confusing formulas!

Our full range of naturally derived products is suitable for sensitive skin. But to help you decide which product is best for your skin, we’ve made choosing a product as simple as possible. Discover the key benefits of our hand wash, hand cream and skin fix to nourish sore, dry skin. 

Hand Cream for very dry hands

Our Caring Hand Cream is ideal for application throughout the day, to keep dry hands nourished and protected. This formula contains a range of powerful ingredients such as medical grade Manuka Honey and White Willow Bark extract that help soothe inflamed skin and rehydrate the skin’s natural lipid barrier. What’s more, this product is dermatologically tested and tested for safe use in hospitals, so it’s the perfect hand cream for nurses, midwives, and other healthcare professionals

Skin Fix for persistently dry and eczema-prone skin

Our Caring Skin Fix is a little thicker and richer than our hand cream, meaning it’s more of an intensive formula for skin that is particularly sore, damaged and chapped. For best results, we recommend applying the skin fix overnight. This formula is full of soothing and nourishing ingredients that fuel the skin’s ability to repair, such as Hyaluronic Acid, Pro Vitamin B5 and Allantoin. Plus, this product is unfragranced and Consultant Dermatologist approved, meaning it’s ideal for eczema-prone skin or skin that is particularly sensitive.

Unfragranced hand cream for hypersensitive skin, or skin sensitive to fragrance

The unfragranced version of our hand cream is also ideal for application throughout the day. It is made from all the same ingredients as our fragranced hand cream, such as Manuka Honey and White Willow extract, however it contains no essential oils or fragranced ingredients, making it perfect for those with hypersensitive skin. Like our Caring Hand Cream, this product is also tested for safe use in hospitals, meaning it’s ideal for healthcare professionals to use at work, or any working professionals who cannot use overly scented products in their place of work.

For skin that is sensitive to harsh soaps and washes

Many hand washes and soaps actually contain harsh surfactants that strip our skin from their natural protective oils. These formulas can often leave our hands feeling dry, tight and itchy. Our SLS-free and soap-free hand wash contains three types of natural surfactants that work just like traditional soap, but they do not have the same drying effects. We enrich our formula with plant-derived oils that help restore moisture deep into the skin’s surface. Plus, our hand wash is just as effective as removing germs and microbes from your hands.
