Written by: Joanne S.The cold air can dry out your hands any winter, but this year presents a unique challenge. With increased hand washing and hand sanitizer use to slow the spread of COVID-19 we are going into winter with hands that are already dry. Here’s how to beat dry hands this winter.Carry Moisturizer With You Switch from standard hand lotion to a thick cream or butter. Synthetic ingredients dry out your hands, so look for naturally derived products that are scented with essential oils. Apply at least every time you wash or sanitize your hands. If your hands crack, apply a liquid bandage to help them heal.Wear GlovesEven if you’ll only be out in the cold air for a few minutes, put your gloves on. This will keep the cold dry air out. In addition to standard gloves, wear lotion gloves at night at least 2 or 3 days per week. If they aren’t comfortable to sleep in, 1 or 2 hours a night while watching TV will do. If your feet are dry you can wear lotion socks too.At-Home Paraffin Wax No need to book an appointment at a salon to enjoy the healing benefits of paraffin wax! Paraffin treatments are fast and easy to do at home and will instantly restore the moisture barrier on your hands—leaving them feeling soft and smooth. Use 1 to 3 times per week as both a proactive and reactive hand softener. If your hands are cracked, wait until they heal before using paraffin. And yes, you can use paraffin on your feet too.Ready To Try Paraffin At Home?
