Landscaper & Gardener

gardener skin care

If you are a landscaper with skin problems you aren’t alone. When you think about what the skin is put through its not surprising. Working outdoors, in all weather with machinery, soil, plants, concrete, fertilizers etc; it’s bound to take a serious toll on the skin.

Professional landscapers often have skin that is ingrained with dirt and grime that takes days to come clean. By itself this may not be a huge issue but that grimy skin soon starts to have other problems.

It may start off with just some dry skin on the back of the hand but very soon splits and cracks will start to appear; particularly around the fingertips! Healthy skin is our first line of defence and when the skin starts to break down it is not only painful and embarrassing but also opens the body to all sorts of further infections.

“Being a landscape gardener I have always had ingrained dirt in my hands and rough, dry skin. After using Derma Guard I no longer have dry hands…… the dirt washes right off after a days gardening. In winter it stops my hands from cracking…….and I don’t have to use oily hand cream every night.”

How Derma Guard can stop landscapers having skin problems.

Derma Guard’s microscopic shield ensures that, in most cases, any substance causing the skin to dry out is no longer in direct contact with the skin. This stops any further aggravation of the sensitised area enabling the skin to recover quickly.

To aid faster skin recovery Derma Guard contains high-grade pharmaceutical moisturisers that are locked in to keep the skin supple. Aloe Vera and Vitamin E nurture the skin and help to keep it supple. Supple skin doesn’t split – it stretches.

Because Derma Guard is designed only to come off the skin as it sheds naturally, one application will last for four to five hours despite repeated washing. This leaves you to go about your day confident that your landscaper’s skin problem is being moisturised, nurtured and protected.

Derma Guard creates a microscopic shield that provides a barrier, stopping dirt and grime attaching to the skin and alleviating the ingrained dirty hands. At the end of the work day, dirt and grime will quickly wash away and leave your skin looking and feeling much better.



Garden skin care is an important aspect of gardening that should not be overlooked.   Suddenly, weeds in the flowerbeds are not the only problem. Skin irritation is a common affliction amongst the nation’s garden enthusiasts.

Many different plants are known to produce skin itching and inflammation.  It is not surprising that contact with Poison Ivy can produce an undesirable reaction.  However, the decorative Chrysanthemum, Mother-in-law’s Tongue and Marigold  are just a few of the others that have been reported as causing a rash with some gardeners.  Even the Tomato and Strawberry plants are not without blame.

Dry and sore skin can also result from contact with garden soil.  Naturally occurring ammonia in the soil is known to be a source of skin irritation.  The use of ammonia based fertilizers and lawn treatments only add to the problem.

Garden plant care is important but, personal care should be just as important.

Skin care in the garden should be a priority for everybody.

The traditional solution for gardeners was to wear heavy-duty gardening gloves.  The gloves provided a physical barrier between the hazards of the garden and the gardener’s skin.  However beneficial gardening gloves may be, they can also be awkward and uncomfortable to work in, especially if the weather is hot.

So, after a pleasant weekend working in the garden, many gardeners find that skin care is an on-going issue. Sore and cracked skin can be both painful and embarrassing.  Dry skin can also become brittle and split.  This can lead to infection, especially if you are working constantly in your garden.

“Many thanks , we received the Derma Guard on Saturday.  My husband and I have been using the product regularly since then as we’ve been gardening all weekend – and the effect is remarkable.  Normally our hands would be rough and dry after exposure to the soil, but with Derma Guard the skin feels smooth and flexible.  In fact my husband says it has restored the elasticity of the skin of his hands, which have felt dry and tight for months! So we will certainly be recommending it to family and friends.”
