How to manage dryness of hands?
Hello, I am 19 years old girl. I am studying in college. I am facing an issue. Every time during winter, I get dryness in hands. I have no other medical condition. It irritates me a lot. I feel uncomfortable. At the same time, I can’t shake my hands with anyone. My confidence goes down. I am trying to get some solution. Initially I thought of going to see a doctor. But now I have made up my mind that I will look for home remedies those are effective in treating this dryness of hands. Can anyone suggest me?
@rekha Weather is responsible for dry hands that mainly occur in the winter. When the weather turns cold, the air dries out, and the body cannot hold onto to moisture. The lack of moisture in the air causes dry skin and hands. A person can try these remedies as a first line of treatment for dry hands: many moisturizers are designed for the hands and are available commercially. A person should use a moisturizing cream on their hands after every wash to help restore the natural moisture to the skin. There are also several oils, such as coconut oil, that may produce similar results. The sun can dry skin out, cause burns, and lead to other, more severe health problems. All areas of the body should be protected from prolonged sun exposure, and the hands are no exception. Protecting the hands with a quality sun block can help prevent the sun from drying them out. People with extremely dry hands may want to try to treat them overnight. To do this, they should use copious amount of moisturizing lotions or creams. Once they have applied lots of cream, a person should put socks, gloves, or mittens over the hands. The coverings help to keep the moisturizer in touch with the skin, so it is absorbed overnight. The chemicals often found in soaps can have a drying effect on the hands. People should avoid excessively washing their hands if possible to avoid drying them out. For people with eczema, stress can trigger an outbreak or flare. Reducing stress can help someone with eczema avoid having dry skin on their hands and other areas of the body.
