In winter, it is not uncommon for the skin on your hands to start to chap and peel. Not only is this unappealing, but it can be painful as well.
The reason why your hands chap is that they loose moisture very easily in winter. Humidity goes down and cold dry air constantly hits your hands. The protective oils are stripped away, leaving your skin open to the elements.
There are a few ways to remedy this.
1. Wash you hands as gentle as possilble. Also, while you wash your hands, avoid hot water and pat your hands dry, don’t rub.
2. You can also apply a fine and gentle scrub to the front and back of your hands. Rub together and loosen up that dry, dull skin. Use 1-4 times per week, depending on your skin’s needs.
3. Applying quality moisturizer will help. To light of a lotion will not trap in moisture and protect the skin. You will need to apply the moisturizer many times during the day, especially after each time you wash your hands.
4. If you’re prone to dry, cracked hands try to avoid hand sanitizers, which are high in alcohol.
5. Protect your hands with rubber gloves.
6. Wearing winter gloves will keep the moisture trapped inside, no matter how potent and icy the wind.
7. Wearing cotton gloves when inside or to bed will keep your skin moisturized and healthy. Appling a soothing oil will do wonders while you sleep.
