Hand Care Routine for Cold Weather

Winter is just around the corner, and sometimes our hands have a lot to suffer during the colder season. And even though our hands are the first to be affected, most of us don’t have a rigorous handcare routine, so problems like dryness, irritation, peeling, cracking tend to affect the thin skin of our hands. Here are some simple steps that you can incorporate into your daily routine to prevent those problems and premature aging.

 

  • Wash your hands with the right product.

 

Lately, most of us tend to overwash our hands more than usual to try and keep the viruses and bacteria away, but in the process, we are stripping our skin of the natural oils that keep it safe against the cold weather. If you have dry skin, use a product with humectants or ceramides to keep your skin from drying out. Also, antibacterial soap tends to be harsher and, cracks might appear, try using non-aggressive liquid soap or waterless hand sanitizing gel. Another thing to remember is the water temperature; keep it warm, not hot, to prevent additional skin damage.

  • Exfoliate 

 

Use a gentle exfoliator once or twice a week to remove the top layer of dead skin cells and reveal the fresh skin underneath. This is also one of the factors that will make your hand look younger for a longer period of time. You can easily make a scrub with things you have in your homes, such as coconut oil, honey, sea salt, brown sugar, or lemon. Be careful not to overdo it, which can also result in skin damage.

 

 

  • Use gloves

 

When outside is cold enough to put on a warm coat, don’t forget to also put on your gloves. Your hands are exposed to the weather just as much as your face, so don’t neglect them. Turn it into a fashion statement and protect your hands from the rough weather. If you want to make sure you are doing everything you can, try wearing dishwashing gloves while cleaning around the house.

 

 

  • Moisturise 

 

Hand cream is the best and easiest way to keep your hands moisturized, so try to make it a habit and apply it on the regular. Find one that is perfect for your and always keep it around. Hand creams are often thicker in texture and target rougher areas of skin, products with shea butter and antioxidants are great for your skin. Don’t forget to add a hand mask now and then, pamper yourself.
