Tips to Keep Your Hands Silky Soft This Winter

05 Feb Posted by in Blog, Skincare | Comments Off on Tips to Keep Your Hands Silky Soft This Winter

Soft HandsYour hands are one of the first things that someone will notice about you. When you think about it, you use them for many different daily activities including passing papers back and forth to waving hello. If you suffer from hands that are cracked, peeling, dry, and rough, you may be embarrassed, especially when you need to shake someone’s hand.

The winter is here and of course, rough hands are in season until the weather starts warming up, right? Wrong! Just because you are used to scaly, dry hands does not mean you have to have them. Below are some tips for you to follow to keep your hands nice and silky smooth.

Washing

If you love washing your hands consistently every second you get then you will suffer from cracked, dry hands this winter. Even though it may be hard, avoid continually washing your hands. Excessive washing will lead to your hands drying out much quicker. You will also suffer from wind burn which can be painful.

If you do need to wash your hands regularly, make sure you are not using hot water as this will speed up the drying out process.

Dishes

If you do not have a dishwasher and have the pleasure of washing your dishes in the sink, you can avoid the after washing dry skin by simply mixing a tablespoon of baking soda into the water. The baking soda will help cut down on the acid in the water from the food particles and keep your hands feeling soft and smooth.

Supplements

A diet rich in vitamins is going to produce healthy skin and also a healthy lifestyle. Simply adding an omega 3 supplement to your diet will reward you with radiant skin that is smooth and silky.

Gloves

If you need to leave the home and it is horrendously cold out or windy, wear some gloves. Your gloves will help protect your skin from the wind and also cold weather. Cold air actually causes damage to your skin by causing it to dry out, turn red, and also crack. Talk about yuck!

Moisturize

This one may seem pretty obvious but many people actually do forget about it. Making sure your hands and knuckles stay moisturized will help you achieve the best possible results when it comes to smooth skin. The lotion helps to add moisture back into your already dry hands and it also creates a little barrier to keep your skin out of harm’s way.

Sunscreen

Even though it is cool out, do not doubt the power of the sun. The sun will age the skin on your hands. Actually, the sun will damage all of your skin and cause it to look dried out, leathery, and also rough. Apply sunscreen to your hands whenever you go out as this will protect your skin from the harmful rays.

The skin on your hands is important and you do not want to constantly feel embarrassed about how they look. Keeping your hands soft and silky this winter season is possible. Get ready to enjoy amazing and radiant hands!
