The wind, cold, sun, household products—daily life is hard on your hands. It’s no surprise that they dry out at times. Here are six ways to finally say goodbye to tight, chapped skin and enjoy soft, silky hands!
Your hands dry out when the skin’s protective film is weakened and is no longer able to maintain an optimal level of hydration, making your skin become dry, sensitive and easily irritated. This issue is mainly caused by repeated contact with external aggressors, such as hard water, soap, household products, pollution, and the cold, wind, sun, etc.
Accessories can be a great ally in protecting your hands. So, be sure to always wear gloves or mittens when going out in cold weather.
Regular soap can irritate the skin and make your problem worse, so wash your hands with liquid cleanser or a mild soap. Liquid products are often recommended for sensitive skin, since they are less abrasive and easier to rinse off.
After washing your hands, be sure to properly dry them, including between the fingers, before applying your cream. Massage it in until the product is completely absorbed by the skin. The cream’s oily film acts as a shield to protect the skin from dehydration and also helps to soothe feelings of tightness and discomfort.
Get the most out of your cream by applying a healthy coat on your hands before going to bed, allowing the skin to absorb a larger quantity of the product overnight.
Bleach, dishwasher detergents, sanitary disinfectants—several household products are formulated with ingredients that can irritate the skin. We therefore strongly recommend wearing gloves when doing chores like washing dishes and housekeeping.
The next time you exfoliate your body, give yourself the full experience by scrubbing right to your fingertips. What, exfoliate my hands? That’s right! While it may seem surprising, scrubbing your hands is ultra-beneficial since it promotes blood circulation, removes dead skin cells and helps the moisturizing ingredients in your hand cream to better penetrate the skin.
Water is not dry skin’s best friend. Long exposure to water—especially hot water—will dry it out. So when washing your hands, use lukewarm water and rinse well, nothing more.
The abundance of available hand creams can sometimes make choosing the right one a complex, difficult decision. To relieve your dry skin, opt for a combination of ultra-protective active ingredients that repair the skin.
