Say goodbye to dry hands and avoid cracked skin during winter with our tips for soft hands!
First of all, knowing the cause of your dry hands can help you to fix the problem from its source.
What causes dry hands?
In general, dry hands are due to a lack of hydration and moisture, unless you are suffering from psoriasis, eczema or another skin problem.
How to avoid having dry hands?
Here you have a list of the best things to do in order to prevent dry hands!
🔸Protect your hands with gloves
Dehydration can be caused by bad weather conditions (rain, cold, wind, hard sun). So when the temperatures are cold, rain is falling or wind is blowing, try to wear gloves specifically for your outdoor cardio time: when you run, cycle or exercise.
🔸Apply hand creams daily and take it with you everywhere
Opt for hand creams with ingredients that will help hydrating and lock the moisture inside of your hands such as glycerine, hyaluronic acid, petroleum, shea butter or lanolin.
Protect your skin from the heat too because high temperatures can make your skin feel thirsty.
As dry hands are most of the time caused by dehydration, don’t forget to drink your daily amount of water (2 liters/day).
🔸Avoid chemicals products
If you are always using an anti-bac when you are out of the house, consider using a natural alternative without any chemicals products or alcohol, which could seriously damage your skin.
The same for the household cleaning products, no surprise! Wear gloves when you transform yourself in a housewife.
🔸Hydrate your skin after swimming
Swimming or washing your hands repeatedly can take away the natural oils from your skin, which help to keep them hydrated. After swimming, you should apply a hand and body moisturizer in order to keep your hands soft.
Now you have everything on your hands in order to have soft hands!
