5 Ways To Take Care Of Your Hands In Winter

 

 

5 Ways To Take Care Of Your Hands In Winter.

 

People tend to fall into 2 categories, those who ignore hand care completely and those who are utterly obsessed with it.

I fall into the latter (you can find a small mountain of hand creams in my handbag at all times), but it took a while to get my hand-care routine perfected.

Here are 5 super easy ways to take care of your hands this winter:

 

 

1. Moisturise

 

It really is that simple. We wash our hands with force and frequency causing dryness as the harsh detergent ingredients in hand soap can strip the skin of its natural oils. Applying hand sanitiser which is made of alcohol also dehydrates and irritates the skin barrier. Apply a thick moisturiser and look for ingredients such as Vitamin E, ceramides and hyaluronic acid. 

 

2. Make hand care part your night time routine

 

I find when I moisturise my hands during the day and go about my business there is always product transfer, and my hands feel sticky.

Adding this step to your night time routine you can ensure full absorption without disturbance and they have a better chance of achieving maximum hydration.

 

3. Wear SPF!

 

Did you know that hands are one of the first places to show signs of ageing? Always apply a layer of sunscreen to the backs of your hands, even in winter. 

 

4. Exfoliate

 

Scrubs might be a no-go for the fragile skin on your face, but your hands can totally HANDle it (sorry!).

Exfoliating your hands not only feels amazing but can help get rid of dead skin cells and stop calluses from forming. 

 

5. Massage

 

Quick hand massages are amazing for calming down symptoms of anxiety and can also help ease painful conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome and arthritis. Not sure what to do? Rub your hands together to warm up and begin by drawing small circles with your thumb to the centre of your palms. Hand massage is an amazing way to get blood flowing and can even help with poor quality sleep.
