HOW TO CARE FOR DRY HANDS

You use your hands every day constantly, its no wonder hands can suffer from dryness. Dry cracked hands are a problem, read on for NIVEA top tips and to find the best hand cream for dry hands


WHAT CAUSES DRY SKIN ON HANDS?

There are many different factors affecting how dry, rough and uncomfortable our hands can feel.

WHY DO I HAVE DRY HANDS?

Regardless of our occupation or what we choose to do with our spare time, our hands take on the brunt of the work. As they’re constantly busy with different tasks, they’re exposed to a variety of different temperatures and conditions. This can really take its toll and leave us with dry hands that feel rough and it may even lead to cracked skin on our hands.

When it comes to skincare, the skin on the hands is all too often forgotten about, despite the fact that it’s as fragile as the skin on our face in some places. It’s about time we started appreciating our hands and giving them the care they deserve

IF YOUR INSIDES ARE DEHYDRATED, YOUR HANDS WILL BE TOO!

Staying hydrated can help keep our hands soft. Dehydrating our skin can lead to dry hands that can form callous skin. Drinking enough water to keep us hydrated can help not only dry hands but dry skin on the rest of our bodies too, for example you may find when you're dehydrated that the skin on your face also looks more dull and can feel drier than usual.

6 COMMON CAUSES OF DRY SKIN ON HANDS

  • Cold & windy weather conditions
  • Exposure to UVA/UVB rays
  • Chemicals in household cleaning products
  • Washing hands too frequently
  • Home heating & air conditioning systems
  • Smoking

HANDS NEED EXFOLIATING TOO

When it comes to exfoliating, the hands are often neglected, despite the fact that hand skin is thinner than certain parts of the face. Regularly exfoliating your dry hands will get rid of dead skin cells to reveal the fresher ones underneath – so you can say goodbye to dry, flaky skin.
