My hands get so dry in the winter they actually crack. What can I do to avoid that this year?
Cold, dry weather, indoor heat and frequent hand washing can all cause rough, dry, cracked skin, but there are a few things you can do to give your hands a fighting chance against the elements. Get in the habit of using a hand cream with Shea Butter or a similar moisturizing ingredient, such as L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream, every time you wash your hands. Avoiding very hot water and old fashioned bar soap will help too.
If you especially have trouble with your nails and cuticles, Eve Lom Cuticle Cream soothes cuticles, seals in moisture and encourages nail growth. Wearing gloves while doing household chores, especially dishes, and while outside will further protect your hands.
