Understanding the Causes of Dry Hands

Embarking on a journey to enviable hands requires decoding the mystery behind dryness, an all-too-common woe that plagues many. Dry hands can be an uncomfortable and frustrating condition that affects many individuals. Whether it's due to seasonal changes, harsh weather, or excessive hand washing, the discomfort caused by dry hands can be both physical and emotional. 

Let's bid adieu to the woes of dryness and explore the five main causes of dry hands and remedy that promises not just relief but indulgence to dry and cracked hands. Buckle up as we dive into the world of dry hands and uncover the secrets to revitalising your skin.

Environmental Factors

Biting cold, dehydrating indoor heating, and an unrelenting sun. The elements conspire against our skin, robbing it of moisture. 

One of the primary culprits behind dry hands is the environment we expose our skin to daily. Cold weather, low humidity levels, and excessive heat can all contribute to the depletion of moisture in our hands. The cold winter air and dry indoor heating systems tend to strip away our skin's natural oils, leaving hands parched, prone to cracking and thirsty for nourishment. Prolonged exposure to the sun and excessive sweating add to the dehydration leading to dryness and irritation leaving hands yearning for a sip of hydration.

Frequent Hand Washing

Clean hands are happy hands, or so we've been told. Maintaining proper hand hygiene is crucial for our overall health, especially during times of increased awareness, such as the COVID-19 pandemic. However, frequent hand washing and scrubbing with harsh soaps and hot water can disrupt the skin's protective barrier and strip away its natural oils. The aftermath of this constant assault on the skin? Moisture level decreases, hands feeling dry, rough, and prone to irritation and longing for a moisture revival.

Chemical Exposure

Enter the world of harsh chemicals. Regular contact with harsh chemicals, such as cleaning agents, detergents, and solvents, can wreak havoc on the delicate skin of our hands. These substances often contain irritants that strip away the skin's protective layer, causing dryness and redness. Prolonged exposure to these chemicals? That could lead to more severe skin conditions, such as contact dermatitis. Our hands deserve a break from this chemical warfare.

Skin Conditions

Certain skin conditions contribute to dry hands. Eczema and psoriasis join the plot, causing chaos for our delicate hand skin. Inflammation, itchiness, and relentless dryness become the norm. These conditions disrupt the skin's natural barrier, making our hands vulnerable and more susceptible to moisture loss. Individuals with pre-existing skin conditions often require specialised treatment and moisturisers to soothe and nourish their hands effectively.

Ageing and Hormonal Changes

Time, the silent protagonist, plays its part. As we age, our skin undergoes numerous changes. The production of natural oils decreases, and the skin's ability to retain moisture diminishes. Hormonal changes, particularly during menopause, can exacerbate these effects, leading to drier hands. The natural ageing process reduces the skin's elasticity that loses its bounce, making it more susceptible to dryness and fine lines.
