“My hands are always dry, what can I do to make them soft?” That is one of my frequently asked questions. Well, I would like to share 4 tips to keep your hands soft. These tips are great if you are a teacher, a medical professional, work at home mom/home engineer, accountant, mail carrier, or any lifestyle that adds extra wear on your hands.
- Do wash your hands often. This removes dirt/germs and exposes your skin to moisture.
- Do exfoliate your hands weekly to remove dead skin. I recommend Sénica’s brown sugar scrubs because the sugar gently removes dead skin and draws moisture to the skin. And, the sweet almond and apricot kernel oil seal in that moisture.
- Do wear gloves if you work with harsh chemicals/substances. If you are unable to wear gloves, skip to #3.
- Do keep your hands moisturized. A good moisturizer seals in moisture which keeps your skin soft and protects it from the drying effects of paper and other materials can dry out your skin. I recommend Senica’s shea moisturizers or moisturizing body oils. They are made with organic shea butter and skin softening oils – a little goes a long way and keeps you moisturized without being greasy.
Use these tips and you’ll have softer hands in no time. I hope you find them helpful. How do you care for your hands? I’d love to read them.
