How To Care For Dry Hands

💖 Exfoliation: Gentle Hand Exfoliation to Remove Dull, Dry Skin-

⁠It’s best to exfoliate your hands twice a week, as more frequent exfoliation can irritate the skin and abrade perfectly healthy skin cells prematurely. If you have sensitive skin or open cuts on your hands, avoid exfoliation as it can lead to irritation.⁠⁠

🧴Sunscreen: Protect Your Hands from Premature Ageing

When applying sunscreen to your hands, apply moisturiser first and then apply sunscreen. If you’re spending all day outside, be sure to reapply sunscreen about every 90 minutes and after you wash your hands.⁠⁠

🧤 Exposure: Keep Your Hands Protected 

In the winter, keep your hands covered to prevent your skin from drying out. Low humidity and cold temperature often means less moisture in the air, which can lead to dry and cracked hands.⁠⁠

⏲️ Regular Moisturiser

Your hands tend to be one of the most exposed areas of your skin, so the skin on your hands tend to shed skin cells faster and more often. Regular moisturising allows the skin to retain its natural supple texture.⁠⁠Use a hand balm if needed. Yes, they exist! Hand balms meant to treat damaged or extra dry areas of the skin and can be applied after moisturising.
