Your Guide to Hand Care


Reading time 3 Minutes


Are you the one with rough, cracked and dry hands? Do you think that there isn’t anything that you can do to fix it? Well, you might want to reconsider this! Even if you are involved in household chores every day, there are some basic some hand care steps that need to be followed to protect your hands. 



As you know, your hands suffer from exposure to bad weather, water, chemicals, sun, and dirt, which is why you end up having cracked hands. The skin’s structure has the capability to retain moisture to rejuvenate own its own. But, since our hands are exposed to environmental factors such as cold air, sun, dirt, wind, chemicals, can eventually damage the out layer and thus lead to cracked hands.  Did you know that, damaged skin is more prone to pollutants, UV rays, dryness & aging?

The factors which are most common causes of skin damage are:

  • Dry air: dry climates, cold weather & winter months drain out moisture from the skin
  • Water: People who wash their hands more than often, or do such house hold chores in which their hands remain in contact with water for a long time can loose moisture because water tends to drain out the natural oils from the skin
  • Chemicals: People work closely with chemicals on daily bases such as chemical industries, or household cleaners which are chemical based, are more prone to chapped hands. These chemicals steal the moisture of the skin by damaging the outer layer, leaving it exposed to the environment                         
  • Soap: Soap bars disrupt the skins basic structure that results in slowing down the natural process of skin repair, ultimately causing dryness and cracking
  • Othe factors include medical conditions of skin, allergens, medicinal side effects
