Dry hands: these home remedies make your hands soft again
Dry hands are nothing unusual in winter. Especially the combination of dry heating air, freezing cold and frequent hand washing stresses the sensitive skin. The warm air inside also draws moisture from the hands. The cold also causes the sebaceous glands to reduce their production, so that the skin is no longer supplied with sufficient oil. Frequent hand washing damages the skin's natural protective layer.
In the worst case, our hands dry out so much that fine cracks form. If the protective layer of the skin is severely damaged, bacteria and viruses can penetrate the skin unhindered. But a variety of home remedies help to care for your dry hands and thus survive the winter season well.
Home remedies for dry hands must strengthen the protective layer of our skin. In addition, they should provide sufficient moisture as well as supply the skin with fats, so that it remains soft and supple.
These home remedies help with dry hands and cracks:
Coconut oil ensures that cracks and open spots on the hands heal well. Since the oil is rich in important fatty acids, you can apply it several times a day to your hands. To do this, take two fingertips of the oil and wait briefly until the body heat melts the oil. You can massage coconut oil into very dry hands several times a day for up to 10 minutes.
Mix about 50 ml of almond oil (available at **Avocadostore) with the juice of half a lemon, mix both ingredients thoroughly and massage in well. The almond oil contains important fatty acids, numerous vitamins (vitamin A, vitamin B as well as vitamin E) and minerals that moisturize dry hands and make the skin elastic. So you can prevent painful cracks in winter.
Olive oil boosts cell regeneration and helps with cell damage. It is rich in antioxidants, which protects cells from further damage. The oil provides a lot of moisture and makes dry hands soft again. Add some olive oil to a hand bath or heat the oil and apply it directly to the skin. Massage it thoroughly until it is completely absorbed.
Aloe vera is a great home remedy for the skin, and not just in the summer. It is especially moisturizing and can be used for many skin problems. Use the gel directly from the plant or use a product with as few additives as possible. After about 15 minutes, rinse the gel off your hand.
Avocado is not just something you can eat. It contains unsaturated fatty acids and many important vitamins (A, C, E). Thus, it accelerates the regeneration of cells and protects the skin layer from environmental influences. Mix the flesh of half an avocado and a teaspoon of olive oil to make a paste. You can then apply this to your hands and leave it on for about 15 minutes. Since avocados have a poor environmental record due to their long transport routes and costly refrigeration, you shouldn't do this too often. You can also use avocado oil or plant an avocado pit and grow a new plant.
