The Skin Sisters Share Their Tips for Avoiding ‘Winter Hands’

We recently shared our overnight hand rescue tip (for those who missed it: apply Aquaphor or Vaniply very liberally and then put a white cotton glove on top and leave on all night while you’re sleeping), but what can you do during the day to keep your hands from getting too dry?

Believe it or not, water can dry out your hands. We suggest only washing your hands when necessary, and using warm (not hot) water when possible. After washing, and throughout the day, it’s important to apply a moisturizing cream to seal in moisture. We’ve been loving Aveeno Active Naturals Eczema Therapy Itch Relief Balm (try saying that three times fast!)

Lastly, wear gloves whenever you’re outdoors in cold weather to avoid chapping and irritation from cold temps and wind.
