For many years I have suffered from dry hands. This problem accompanies me in the summer, when the sun dries the skin, in spring and autumn, when the weather is windy. But the skin suffers most in the winter, under the action of wind and frost.
Now on the street -20 degrees. Of course, I remembered my problem again. After a half-hour walk with a stroller, my hands became rough, and the next morning I saw bleeding cracks. I tried a lot of remedies against dry skin. Among them were effective, and not very.
I want to share with you, dear readers of Alimero, the tools that save my hands quickly and efficiently.
1. Mask with oils.
In order for my hands to be soft and get extra vitamins, I use different oils: linseed, sea buckthorn, olive.
To make a mask, I warm up one of these oils in a water bath and imbue a gauze cloth or bandage. I put a gauze bandage on the back side of the brushes, then put on cotton gloves. Leave about 20 minutes.
If I don’t have a free 20 minutes, I simply rub oil into the skin of my hands until completely absorbed. You can rub the mixture of oils before going to bed. During the night, the oil will be completely absorbed and the handles will become soft and smooth.
2. Honey mask.
Honey helps the skin heal. To rid the skin of dryness, 1 tbsp. I mix a spoon of honey with 2 tablespoons of cream and 1 teaspoon of sunflower or olive oil. I mix until smooth and put on my hands for about 15 minutes. Wash off the mask with warm water.
The effect is felt immediately. The skin becomes velvety, pleasant to the touch.
3. Mask bath against dryness.
With strong weathering, I make softening baths for hands. For this, I take about 4 tbsp. l water, 5-6 drops of ammonia and 2 tbsp. l glycerin, thoroughly mixed, rubbed into the skin of the hands. After that, wipe dry with a napkin.
You can take 3-5 times more ingredients and fully immerse your hands in the bath. Hold for at least 10 minutes, then wipe dry with a napkin or towel.
The result is not long in coming. Usually, after 2-3 of these trays, the handles become moistened.
I try to do such procedures systematically. Only regular hand care helps me get rid of dryness. Several times a day, I apply my hands with a cream. In addition, I try to minimize skin contact with cleansers and detergents. My dishes are only in gloves, and the washing of the stove and plumbing equipment is placed on the fragile shoulders of my husband 🙂
And what means from dry skin of hands do you use?
