Winter can wreak havoc on your skin, and it can feel like there’s no escape, cold air, dry indoor heat, low humidity levels, and harsh winter wind can all zap your skin of moisture. This can leave your skin looking a lot less radiant than normal — not only your face but also your hands are exposed to the elements.
Symptoms of dry skin on your hands
- Skin looks and feels rough
- Skin feels tight, especially after swimming, bathing or showering
- Slight or even severe peeling, scaling or flaking
- Itching (pruritus)
- Small cracks or fine lines
- Deep cracks that may bleed
How to prevent dry skin in Winter
1.Lower water temperature for handwashing
Avoid using hot water when showing and handwashing as the heat in the water dries the oils out of your skin. This is especially important if your hands tend to be red and itchy, dry skin from exposure to hot water or cool air can trigger an eczema flare-up.
2. Moisturise frequently
Handwashing is important when the flu is a treat in winter, but it also strips your skin of its natural oil. To add moisture back to your skin, don’t forget to apply hand cream after each washing.
