Give Your Skin a Chance: Tips to Alleviate Dry, Chapped Hands and Feet

Feb 26, 2015

Moisturize 

The main reason you have dry or cracked skin is because your skin is dehydrated. Naturally, the thinking is to hydrate by drinking water – that won’t help. You must use a moisturizer to help rehydrate and to help seal in the moisture in your skin. If you’re thinking of using it once a day and you’ll be fine, think again. Using it once will be enough for about five minutes, so don’t be shy, apply moisturizer five or six times a day. If it helps, keep several bottles of moisturizer around the house rather than just in your bathroom. Having moisturizer around will remind you to use it. 

Choosing the Right Moisturizer for Dry Skin

There are hundreds of options to choose when picking moisturizer. Experts say the two key ingredients you’ll want to look for in a moisturizer are emollients and humectants. These are the key to soothing your dry skin and sealing the cracks. Humectants attract moisture from the air to help keep your hands moist. 

Try a Humidifier 

If you constantly are suffering from dry skin, you may want to think about getting a humidifier in your home. During the winter months, run a humidifier to help keep our skin soft and hydrated.
