Leah is struggling with super dry and cracked skin on her hands and arm, post-surgery.
Leah had major surgery on her arm and had to have it in a splint for seven weeks. During that time, the skin on her hands and arm become severely dry, cracked and painful.
After nearly two months of not being able to move her arm, shower, swim or drive, Leah was shocked when she saw how badly her skin had deteriorated when they took the dressings off at the hospital.
““I looked like a crocodile! My skin was mega dry and I had quite deep cracks around the joints of my fingers and all over my palm. It was painful but it was also very ugly.”
Dry Skin Symptoms
- Extremely dry skin
- Cracked skin
- Flaking, peeling skin
Traditional Treatments & Side Effects
Traditionally you would treat extremely dry and cracked skin with a cracked skin balm, an oil- based moisturiser or even lanolin or Sorbolene. Many commercial creams for extremely dry, cracked skin are full of chemical ingredients, including parabens.
Parabens are a chemical many people are looking to avoid these days, for good reason. Scientific studies suggest that parabens can disrupt hormones in the body and harm fertility and reproductive organs, affect birth outcomes, and increase the risk of cancer (See: ewg.org/what-are-parabens)
Leah’s experience reflects this. She says that when she started researching treatments, many of the moisturisers had ingredients with names she couldn’t even pronounce.
“I didn’t want to use synthetic chemicals on my skin or anything with fragrance in it because I have quite sensitive skin. I didn’t want more problems on top of what was already going on.”
Things like rosehip oil, almond oil and even cocoa butter are also popular treatments for healing extremely dry skin but the problem is that they leave your skin feeling greasy.
“I tried using a ‘butter’ type of product but – this is going to sound crazy – it was too rich for my skin. It just left a shiny layer of grease on my skin and it also had a really strong natural smell.”
Leah turned to internet research to try to discover an alternative treatment for her painfully dry skin.
“I Googled organic hemp moisturiser and Cannabella was the first thing that came up. After a quick look through their website and know what all the ingredients were on every product, I placed my order. And I’m so glad I did. What a difference!”
