How to Take Care of Your Dry Hands?

We use our hands to fulfill all of our day-to-day needs. We use them to cook, eat, clean, wash, and write. They are one of the areas we leave exposed to weather conditions, in summer and winter. Hands are frequently subject to sanitation, to prevent the spread of disease, bacteria and viruses, most importantly, the coronavirus (Covid-19). All of this and more make our hands prone to dryness and cracked skin unless we take full care of them.

Steps to take care of your hands:

It is high time to take care of your hands and pamper them with simple daily steps to include in your daily routine. Just like our face, skin on our hands is very thin and vulnerable. The difference is that we use our hands over and over again. The following steps can help in skin repair:

Step 1

Preserve the body’s internal moisture: Drinking enough water during the summer and winter provides your skin with the moisture it needs all over your body. This is one of the most important steps to follow on a day to day basis.

Step 2

Avoid subjecting your hands to chemicals: Do not expose your hands to harsh chemicals such as household cleaners. Wear non-powdered gloves to protect your hands from becoming dry or cracked.

Protection from sunlight: Exposing your skin to the harmful sunlight cause skin dryness, roughness and even wrinkles. Make sure you use a sunscreen in the morning even if you are indoors

Step 4

Cleaning hands: Wash your hands with water and soap, and choose a soap that does not dry out your skin. Try to wash your hands for at least 20 seconds. Only use a hand sanitizer when water and soap are not available.

Step 5

Use external moisturizers: Last but not least: moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. Apply a moisturizer after washing or sanitizing your hands. Ensure using nourishing and highly-moisturizing products.

After washing your hands, or using a hand sanitizer, gently dry your hands and immediately apply NIVEA Soft. Its formula is rich in Vitamin E & Jojoba Oil, and is quickly absorbed to refresh the skin and protect it against dryness.

Step 6

Moisturize your hands before bedtime: The skin absorbs moisturizers better during sleep. This way you put a protection layer against exterior influences that would make your hands dry and cracked the next day. Make sure to apply NIVEA Creme. The Eucerit® rich formula provides the skin with intensive protection to stay invigorated. You can use it at night and you will feel the difference, when waking up with soft and smooth skin in the morning.

Step 7

Exfoliate your hands: Skin on your face need exfoliation to keep it healthy and fresh. Your hands need exfoliating, too! Regularly exfoliating hands rid them of dead skin cells and uncover younger cells underneath.

Homemade Hand Scrub: Simply mix three tablespoons of olive oil with two tablespoons of sugar. Apply the paste generously to your hands and then gently massage it in without applying much pressure. Finally, rinse the scrub off with lukewarm water and follow with a nourishing hand cream.
