At the same time, the winter season is great for outdoor activities and sports, such as strolling through Christmas markets or skating on the beautiful Amsterdam canals. As much as we love the winter season, it can take a toll on our skin, especially on our hands. Cold weather, coupled with dry indoor heat, can lead to unsightly and uncomfortable dry skin. If you suffer from chapped hands, you are not alone! Here are some tips to help you care for your dry hands during the winter months: Moisturise regularly It’s important to moisturise your hands regularly during the winter to help prevent dryness. Choose a moisturiser that is thick and creamy, and apply it to your hands after washing them or whenever they feel dry. The Herome Cream for Chapped Skin is packed with moisturising and caring ingredients, such as shea butter, aloe vera, lanolin and vitamin E, which makes it a perfect addition to your winter time hand care routine. Protect your hands If you’ll be spending time outside in the cold, make sure to protect your hands by wearing gloves, after applying a layer of moisturiser. Exfoliate regularly Exfoliating your hands can help remove dead skin cells, which can help improve the effectiveness of your moisturiser. You can use a gentle exfoliator like the Herome One Minute Scrub. It is rich in vitamins A, C and E, and will leave your hands silky-soft and smelling amazing! Avoid hot water Hot water can strip the skin of its natural oils and moisture, so try to use lukewarm water instead when washing your hands. Hand slugging The viral K-beauty trend involves layering a hand treatment and petroleum jelly on top, and is actually proven to work! This method repairs the skin barrier and minimizes moisture loss by locking it in. Perfect for hand slugging would be the Herome Overnight Hand Mask. You will wake up with your hands completely transformed! By following these tips, you can keep your hands hydrated and healthy during the winter season. Remember to be consistent with your skin care routine and choose high quality products to get the best results.
