How to Keep Your Hands From Cracking This Winter

Kiss Dry, Cracked Hands Goodbye This Winter

Dry skin anywhere is one of the top woes of Winter, but scaly, cracked hands seem to be the worst. Frigid temps make your paws more susceptible to drying and cracking, but all is not lost. Three simple steps separate you and smooth fingers:

  1. Exfoliate: Sounds counterintuitive, right? But exfoliating actually helps your skin absorb more moisture. A quick scrub down in the shower will suffice, but only do this to prevent your fingers from cracking. If they're already rough, this will only irritate them further.
  2. Put on your gloves: An at-home spa experience can save your hardened hands. Pick up a pair of spa gloves, like Bliss Glamour Gloves ($48). Each pair is gel lined with grape seed and ceramide to sooth dehydrated hands, and they're good for 50 treatments.
  3. Turn down the heat: Washing your hands is a must-do in the Winter to keep yourself healthy, but hot water can dry out your skin. Keep your sudsing lukewarm, and always slather on a moisturizer, like Malin + Goetz Neroli Hand and Body Lotion ($34) postwashing to keep things smooth.
