In winter your hands and nails need special care. Cold weather and central heating diminish the skin’s moisture. The winter cold also makes sebaceous glands in the hands produce less oil. This leads to your hands becoming rough and cracked. To ensure that they don’t get that bad, your hands need preventative care.
Remember to wear gloves. If your hands are warm they don’t get so dry in the cold.
If dry areas develop on your hands, use a special hand scrub to remove the dry skin cells. This will make your hands silky soft again.

After a hand scrub you should rub a cream generously into your hands and nails.

Washing your hands properly is an important part of hand care. Hot water draws the oil and moisture out of your skin. Soap can also disturb the balance of your skin’s protective barrier. So if you wash your hands frequently you should use a gentle hand soap or liquid soap that contains caring and nourishing ingredients.

Nails need extra care in winter too. So you need to rub cream into your nails as well as your hands regularly to prevent cracks and dryness. A balanced diet is also essential for beautiful nails.
