Athlete or crossfitter putting heavy handed hand cream in their workout bag.

An Ounce Of Prevention Is Worth A Pound Of Cure.

Calluses are a common and necessary result of an active lifestyle, leaving your hands rough, dry, and sometimes painful. Calluses can become an unwelcome companion if you're a CrossFitter, Body Builder, Climber, or engaged in manual labor. But fear not! With the right care and a reliable hand cream like Heavy Handed, you can bid farewell to calluses and reveal the tough, but not rough, hands you've been working for. This blog post will explore effective ways to prevent and treat calluses while highlighting the benefits of using Heavy Handed hand cream in your daily skincare routine.

  • Moisturize regularly:

Dryness is a leading cause of calluses, so keeping your hands hydrated is key to preventing and treating them. Heavy Handed hand cream is specially formulated with nourishing ingredients that deeply moisturize your skin. Apply it throughout the day, paying extra attention to the areas prone to calluses. The cream's rich texture will create a protective barrier, locking in moisture and preventing further dryness.

  • Exfoliate gently:

Regular exfoliation helps remove dead skin cells and promotes healthy cell turnover. For your hands, use a mild exfoliating scrub or a pumice stone to gently buff away rough patches. Remember to be gentle to avoid irritating your skin. After exfoliating, follow up with Heavy Handed hand cream to replenish moisture and soothe the freshly exfoliated skin.

  • Wear grips:

If your daily activities involve repetitive friction or contact with rough surfaces, wearing grips is essential. Kipping, butterfly pull-ups, muscle-ups, and toe 2 bar are repetitive movements that wreck your hands. Invest in high-quality grips that provide adequate protection. Grips act as a barrier, reducing the risk of callus formation and preventing existing calluses from ripping or tearing. 

  • Maintain proper hand hygiene:

Keeping your hands clean is not only important for general hygiene but also plays a role in preventing calluses. Regularly wash your hands with soap and lukewarm water, removing any dirt or bacteria that may contribute to callus formation. After washing, pat your hands dry and apply Heavy Handed hand cream to restore moisture.


Don't let calluses hinder your everyday performance. With a proactive approach and the right skincare regimen, you can effectively prevent calluses from getting in the way of your active lifestyle. Incorporating Heavy Handed hand cream into your routine ensures your hands remain hydrated and healthy.
