How to take care of your hands in the winter

Cold, windy weather as well as dry indoor heat can really dehydrate your skin in the wintertime. And though many women worry most about the skin on their faces, you shouldn't neglect your hands either. Follow these tips to take care of your hands in the winter.

Wear gloves

Make a habit of wearing gloves every time you go outside. Even if you are out for just a few minutes, the elements can do some damage. Also, be sure to always wear rubber gloves when washing dishes and doing other household cleaning. The hot water and chemicals in detergents and cleaners can dehydrate and damage your hands.

Use a humidifier

Humidify the air in your house. You can use an actual humidifier or just place a saucer of water near your heater. The extra moisture in the air will help stop the dry heat from drying out your skin -- including your hands.

Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize

Start a routine that every time you wash your hands, you automatically use a hand lotion or cream. Look for products made with natural ingredients.

    Understated Classics. Thanks for following! I look forward to a fun blogging relationship!

    May I make a recommendation? SHEA BUTTER. The price tag may freak you out at first, but it has been a lifesaver. The more natural the butter, the better. Your manicurist will thank you!

  8. Thank you for sharing your blog over at Thumping Thursdays Blog Hop! :)

    This post WAS really informative. I use TriCalm to get rid of the winter itch when my hands are dry, and wrote a review about it a while back. It is all natural so no harsh chemicals that can usually come with other anti-itch creams.

    Thanks again for hopping by!

  16. Most people don't realize how quickly your hands can show your age. When I worked as an RN in ICU, between washing my hands 5 million times a shift and cold weather, it was horrible. My hands would crack and bleed, and I have to say my hands do show my age, oh and my boobs of course... A new follower from the Fun Friday Blog Hop. Would luv if you could drop by my blog as well.
