How to Heal Dry Hands

Home Spa Treatment: Heal Dry Hands With Heated Socks

Colder weather means dry skin, and for me, my hands and cuticles are the worst since I'm constantly washing my hands. Here's a soothing and inexpensive remedy you can treat yourself to at home. If you suffer from dry skin on your feet, you can use this treatment on your tootsies too.

To learn how to heal your dry skin keep reading.

  1. Heat up an old pair of dry, cotton socks in the microwave for seven seconds.
  2. Generously lather on some moisturizing lotion or hand salve, paying close attention to your cuticles. Don't rub it in all way.
  3. Slip the warm socks on each hand and relax for 10 minutes. Then remove the socks and rub the lotion in a little more.
  4. You'll be left with soft, supple skin.

I reckon I'll try this next time I get home from work. I get really dry skin from washing my hands all the time at work.

I'm going to try this right now because my hands are SO dry. We have a woodburning stove and it really dries out my skin in the fall/winter. Thanks for the tip!

I do this if I shower right before bed, for hands and feet alike
