Best Treatments for Dry Hands

If you’re suffering from dry and rough hands with cracked nails and dry cuticles you need to do some basic things to improve the situation.

 

1.  Exfoliate your hands

Sometimes it helps to just get rid of old skin cells on the surface of your hands and using  a mild scrub about once a week can help in keeping your hands nice and soft. The scrubbing of your hands will help remove dead skin cells and allow the skin to reveal new ones.

 

2.  Moisturize your hands

Sounds obvious, but the key is to find the right kind of moisturizer that really absorbs in to the skin – look for natural emollients and moisturizers, such as:

Avocado Oil is very hydrating and proven to stimulate collagen production of your skin and it contains anti-bacterial properties that help to heal your skin. This luxurious oil penetrates deep into the skin and moisturizes it from within. It also has many other benefits for the skin, one of them being removing age spots.

Shea butter, being naturally rich in Vitamins A, E, and F, is a natural emollient and moisturizer that absorbs into the skin quickly and without feeling greasy. Shea butter, being high in fat, has the ability to moisturize and retain the elasticity of the skin. Shea butter has been claimed to have anti-inflammatory properties and makes the skin softer, smoother, and younger looking within a short period of time.

Manuka Honey is a remarkable honey from the flowers of Manuka bushes and is a very effective natural moisturizer. It is extremely rich in antioxidants and stimulates the immune system, as well as enhances the collagen production of the skin and helps keeping your hands wrinkle free.

Vitamin E is very effective in preventing free radical damage to your skin and proven to work externally to correct dry skin.

 

3.  Using overnight treatment

If you have extremely dry hands you can try to soaking them in olive oil, put on a pair of cotton gloves and wear throughout the night.  Your hands should be very smooth the next morning!
