We use our hands all day long. They are often our first contact with the objects around us and more broadly with our environment. On a daily basis, they can be attacked by many elements without us noticing. Taking care of your hands is essential to keep them healthy, clean and cared for.
The cold: it dries the hands
When winter comes, you have to be even more careful with your hands. The cold dries out the skin and the hands are often the first victims. Cracks and crevices may appear on the fingers and on the backs of the hands.
To prevent the cold from attacking your hands, remember to go out with warm gloves. They will protect your hands when you are outside or in a cold place. Similarly, be sure to regularly moisturize your hands with a specially adapted balm.
Even outside the winter period the hands need to be hydrated regularly. In summer, they must be protected from the sun’s rays by applying sunscreen.
The various products to take care of the hands
The moisturizer is the basic care to prevent the skin of yours from drying out. It is advisable to apply a moisturizer, after each hand washing, because the soap dries out the skin. Ditto after the use of cleaning products such as laundry or dishwashing product. Also remember to apply it before bed.
You can also use homemade recipes like a mixture of olive oil and lemon in which you will dip your hands once a week for 15 minutes.
To exfoliate the hands, a facial scrub is suitable. We advise you to exfoliate your hands once or twice a week.
We recommend that you use the adequate manicure and pedicure set to take care of your nails before applying any kind of decoration.
