Imagine that there is a great warrior out there fighting for you on the battlefield. If you give them food, water, and proper care they can do a better job. This is how we should look at skincare. We’re not up against our skin. Our skin is on our side. If we see our skin as an ally, we naturally attempt to support it.

Constant hand washing and sanitizing strips away our skin's natural moisture barrier and leaves our hands parched and dry.
Here are 3 easy tips to keep your manos looking amazing:
Tip 1: Use Gentle Soaps Whenever Possible
When washing our hands dozens of times a day, the soaps we use are that much more impactful. Many of them are loaded with harsh detergents and ingredients that strip away our natural oils. Try switching to gentle plant-based soaps that get the job done and are gentle at the same time!
Tip 2: Marula Oil — Your Skin's Holy Grail
The ancient African fruit marula produces one of the richest healing oils on the planet. It's jam-packed with antioxidants and has over 4x the vitamin-c of an orange! It's anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and provides deep healing that is perfect for all skin types. When you apply marula topically, these oils are rapidly absorbed into your skin delivering healing and moisturizing benefits that will leave your skin with an undeniable glow! Because of these incredible healing properties, marula trees are often considered sacred in Africa. They serve as community gathering sites. We're so in love with Marula that it's in nearly all Ellovi products.
Tip 3: Moisturize After You Wash!
We promise you that taking that one extra step to moisturize after you wash or sanitize will make all the difference! Just keep a jar of Ellovi Butter near your sink. Once you start the habit it will become easy and your hands will never look better.
