My hands are…. cracked/chapped
There’s nothing worse than having cracked or chapped hands. Not only is it pretty painful, it can also be ugly to look at when your hands are all red and inflamed. Thankfully there are a few tips to help:
- As we know, prevention is the best cure. Keep lots of nourishing creams around you during colder months so your hands don’t reach the cracked state.
- If the skin on your hands is already chapped or cracked, be sure to look for creams that aren’t heavily fragranced (as these will sting any open wounds, however slight).
- Don’t underestimate the cheaper brands. One of the best hand lotions for really dry skin is Vaseline Rescue Soothing Hand Cream, which has the ability to soften even the driest of hands.
- Really rough, dry skin is almost unbeatable to break through and treat, so be sure to soak your hands in warm water for a few minutes to soften dead or dry skin before you take to your hands with a really rich hand cream. Look for shea butter as a main ingredient, as it’s one of best deeply nourishing ingredients.
