As with facials, hand skin health also starts with cleansing. Experts believe that soap is one of the main causes of dry hands. If you constantly experience a feeling of tightness or dryness, eliminate bar soaps and antiseptic gels from your hand care. Try to wash your hands with a cream soap that is enriched with moisturizers or moisturizers to cleanse your skin.
Yes, the skin of the hands also needs updating. True, you should not immediately look for a specific peeling for hands - you can safely use products intended for the face or body. For example, if you use acidic lotions, treat your hands with it once a week. When exfoliating your body with a scrub or special exfoliation, also remember to pay attention to your palms and elbows.
The soft and smooth skin of the hands requires regular maintenance, so it is very important to remember to apply the hand cream in the morning and evening. In the morning and throughout the day (if necessary), you can use less dense creams that are quickly absorbed and do not leave a sticky feeling. Before going to bed, you should apply thicker, nourishing creams or even hand masks. By the way, add any moisturizing organic oil to your favorite cream for greater efficiency. With such care, the skin of the hands will not only be moisturized, but also confidently withstand temperature changes in the winter season.
Hands, like any other part of the body, also require careful protection from the sun. Look for creams with SPF and a waterproof formula. If pigmentation has already appeared, then you can replenish your hand care with special moisturizers against age spots.
Sensitive areas: cuticles and elbows
The cuticle and elbow area require special attention - it is they who react more quickly to lack of moisture and nutrition. Use cuticle oils and special products for extremely dry skin to make the skin of your hands more protected from external negative factors and turn from rough to velvety.
