Winter Care for your hands and feet

The skin of the hands is thinner than found on most other parts of the human body and tends to get very dry in winters as they have fewer oil glands. This translates the tale to most of us who wonder why it is so difficult to keep the hands soft and glowing especially during the cold and dry winter season. It is also important to note that hands face the wrath of cold water much more than any other part of the body. It is also the most exposed part of the body. Care for your hands when they are free of work.

Moisturize them well especially the tips of the fingers which take the brunt of the load. Applying Vaseline before bedtime helps immensely to keep hands hydrated.

The skin of the heels and toes on either foot require regular attention as they develop cracks before and after the onslaught of winter.  Constant exposure of feet to the cold floor without proper footwear leads to its itching, swelling, red spots and cracking which must be avoided. Like wearing gloves or mittens takes care of your hands while venturing outside, your feet must be protected with socks or stockings of cotton or wool in accordance to the dip of mercury.  If the need of the weather means wearing woolen gear for hands and feet to keep warm then slipping on thin cottons first is advised for avoiding any irritation the wool might create.

Wearing wet gloves and socks cause much more harm than good as the skin develops sores, bad odor or skin disorders.

The feet should be cleaned properly before bedtime lavishing them with lotions and Vaseline to keep them from drying out during the day. On the other hand feet that are enveloped in socks and tend to smell or get rashes must be treated with anti-fungal powder after drying them with a clean and dry towel. The most sensitive areas lie between the fingers of the either foot and below the toe.

Lastly but not in the least it is always the best of medications to drink adequate water throughout the day as it helps your skin look healthy.

Water flushes out most of the toxins from the body making it feel better from within. Always use warm water for short durations to cleanse your hand feet as hot water flakes off your skin cells during a prolonged exposure.
