How to Care for Cracked Hands During the Summer?

May 06, 2023Plabon Bhuiya

Ah, summer—the season of sun-kissed adventures and outdoor escapades that can also be tough on our skin... The sun, heat, and frequent hand washing can lead to dry, cracked hands. Cracked hands can be painful and unsightly, but with a touch of care, you will keep your hands healthy, soft, supple, and ready for beautiful summer soirée, all summer long. We'll share the secrets to care for cracked hands and bring them back to radiance during the summer months.

Moisturise, Moisturise, Moisturise

Bid adieu to hand dryness with a dose of hydration! Moisturising your hands regularly is one of the most important things to avoid cracked hands. In the summer, embrace lightweight moisturisers that won't leave your hands feeling greasy. Look for a hand lotion that contains natural ingredients like aloe vera, jojoba oil. 100% natural hand lotions are the best for hydrating and nourishing your skin.

Summer Gloves

Gardening? Yard work? Channel your inner green thumb with breathable gloves made from cotton or bamboo, so your hands don't get too hot and sweaty. Gloves help shield your hands from cuts, scrapes, and other injuries. Gloves for manual labour are the perfect natural protection against sun's rays while keeping your hands cool amidst the summer heat.

Stay Hydrated

Sip, Sip, Hooray! Elevate your hydration game and bid farewell to parched skin. Drinking water is important for overall health, but it's also crucial for keeping your skin hydrated. When your body is dehydrated, your skin can become dry and cracked. Drinking enough water throughout the day, especially if you're spending time outside in the sun, keeps your skin plump and hydrated.

Sunscreen, your BFF

Sunscreen isn't just for your face and body, don't let your hands suffer the wrath of UV rays. The skin on your hands is thin and delicate, and can easily be damaged by the sun's harmful UV rays. Opt for a hand-specific sunscreen, or use a regular sunscreen every time you go outside. Give your hands the protection they deserve—because sun-kissed skin is in, but sun-damaged skin? Definitely out!

Exfoliate Gently

Unveil your summer glow by exfoliating your hands to remove dead skin cells and improve the texture of your skin. Be gentle when exfoliating your hands and treat them to a spa-like indulgence , especially if they are already cracked. Be sure to follow up your gentle exfoliating scrub with a moisturiser. Once or twice a week will reveal the glowing radiance beneath the surface without aggravating those delicate cracks.

Cool Down the Heat

Shield your hands from the blistering heat and embrace the cool embrace of summer's gentle touch. If you need to use hot water for cleaning, wear gloves to protect your hands.

Eat a Healthy Diet

Nourish your skin from within with a rainbow healthy diet of vibrant delights. Rainbow food? Foods that are high in vitamins A, C, as well as leafy greens, citrus fruits, nuts, seeds, and omega-3-rich fatty fish—because radiant skin starts from the inside out!

Skin SOS

If your hands are severely cracked or if you're experiencing any pain or discomfort, it's important to seek medical attention. Your doctor can recommend treatments like prescription-strength moisturisers, ointments, or even steroid creams to help heal your skin and restore your hands' natural glory.
