5 Simple Tips for Your Hands

  • After washing your hands in warm water, dry your hands with a clean towel but don't make them completely dry. Apply some hand cream while your hands are still slightly damp. Make sure you put some of the moisturizer into your nails and fingertips. 
  • When you use hand sanitizer, apply hand cream immediately after the hand sanitizer dries.
  • Choosing a great hand cream can help a lot. Look for hand creams that contain ingredients such as glycerin and Shea butter which locks moisture in your skin and protects it.
  • Make yourself an easy hand soak at night time to calm your hands. A few drops of body oil containing rich oils such as sweet almond oil or coconut oil into a warm bath. The oil is rich in moisture and can reduce inflammation and is good for eliminating your dry skin.
  • If your hands are frequently immersed in water during daily housework such as washing dishes or clothes. You should consider wearing gloves while you are doing it to prevent the water stripping natural oils from your skin.
