How to Get Rid of Dry Cracked Hands in Winter

Kiss Dry, Cracked Hands Goodbye This Winter

Dry skin anywhere is one of the top woes of Winter, but scaly, cracked hands seem to be the worst. Frigid temps make your paws more susceptible to drying and cracking, but all is not lost. Three simple steps separate you and smooth fingers:

  1. Exfoliate: Sounds counterintuitive, right? But exfoliating actually helps your skin absorb more moisture. A quick scrub down in the shower will suffice, but only do this to prevent your fingers from cracking. If they're already rough, this will only irritate them further.
  2. Put on your gloves: An at-home spa experience can save your hardened hands. Pick up a pair of spa gloves, like Moisture Surge Gloves ($6.99). Each pair is gel lined containing natural and anti-bacterial properties to sooth dehydrated hands.
  3. Turn down the heat: Washing your hands is a must-do in the Winter to keep yourself healthy, but hot water can dry out your skin. Keep your sudsing lukewarm, and always slather on a moisturiser, like Clarins Hand and Nail Treatment Cream ($29.09) post-washing to keep things smooth.
