Many people suffer from skin problems on their hands in the late fall and winter. It is damaged by the cold; it dries and cracks, and it frequently bleeds, but there are several ways to prevent it.
Oatmeal will calm sensitive skin, soften it, and make it more resistant to the cold. Cocoa or shea butter will nourish your skin the healthiest, and the correct nutrients will keep your nails from splitting.
Apart from the face, the hands are the most exposed part of the body, so they require extra attention, especially in cold climates.
External influences such as cold, wind, and abrupt temperature fluctuations – from cold to hot – have a negative impact on the skin of the hands, which, if not properly cared for, becomes dry and cracked over time.
Using half a glass of milk, warm a cup of oatmeal. Once the sauce has thickened and cooled, add the sugar. Then massage it into your palms for ten minutes.
Milk will work as a natural exfoliant, encouraging the removal of dead skin cells, and oatmeal will soothe inflamed skin, making it softer and more resistant to cold.
After properly cleansing your hands, apply shea butter or cocoa butter to the skin.
To protect them, in winter, feed your hands with cream in the morning and at bedtime, dermatologists advise.
Night treatment with olive oil will help very sensitive skin. Apply a few drops of olive oil on your hands before going to bed, which (to reduce the smell) you have previously mixed with a few drops of lemon juice.
As the cold dries the nails and encourages them to crack, rub the oil well on your fingertips. Wear cotton gloves and leave the oil on overnight.
A diet rich in protein as well as fruits and vegetables (vitamins and minerals) is also very important for soft skin and firm nails.
The varnishes are good, the cheese and fish even better
In addition to nail polish, nail polish remover is recommended in the winter. It will also help to prevent cracking and peeling of the nails. Unpainted nails, on the other hand, should be fed from the inside out, therefore eat meals high in calcium and vitamin A.
Wash your hands in rose water during the winter.
Rose water is an essential component of winter hand care. 2/3 cup rose water, 1/3 cup glycerin, and a teaspoon of lemon juice are required to produce the lotion.
Combine the contents, pour into a dark bottle, and keep refrigerated. Use as required.
Honey and milk are a real winter bath for hands
You can nourish your hands with a mixture of olive oil and honey, and you can add a few drops of castor oil to the olive oil and lemon mixture. Hands can also benefit from homemade milk lotion to soften the skin.
Heat two cups of milk, along with a teaspoon of salt, in a saucepan. After it has cooled down a little, bathe your hands in the milk and gently massage them in.
The skin is doubly protected during the shower
Before showering, rub a small amount of nourishing oil or Vaseline into the area around the nails. If you rub oil around the nails even during the shower, its penetration into the nails and skin will be accelerated by hot steam.
