Whether it's winter or summer, hands need hydration. Indeed, they tend to be rough, dry, and more sensitive due to external aggressions and excessive washing. Therefore, it's important to hydrate them regularly. The question that arises is: how often should you hydrate your hands? Here's what you need to know on this subject.
How often do our hands need to be moisturized?
How often should you moisturize your hands?
Hand dryness can manifest through the following symptoms: inflammation, redness, itching, presence of cracks, and tightness. To avoid these discomforts, make it a habit to regularly moisturize your hands and do so as often as the need arises, especially after each wash. Indeed, during hand washing, soap or hand sanitizer will remove the skin's hydrolipidic film and destroy the resident flora, both of which are responsible for protecting the skin from external aggressions.
How to maintain hand hydration?
To maintain the hydration of your hands, it is appropriate to adopt certain habits in your daily routine:
Wear gloves not only when it's cold, but also for DIY projects, cleaning, and gardening;
Wash your hands carefully by choosing a gentle cold-process soap or a cleanser containing a non-irritating wash base;
Every evening, massage your hands with your nourishing balm. This action not only hydrates them, but also stimulates blood circulation.
Furthermore, proper hydration also comes from within the body. To maintain moisturized skin, drink 1.5 liters of water per day.
Which care should be prioritized for the hands?
In order to retain water, the epidermis needs to be nourished and strengthened. Essential fatty acids are key active ingredients to prioritize. Obtained during the saponification reaction, vegetable glycerin has protective, emollient, and softening virtues.
Our hand balm contains essential ingredients for skin hydration, such as hyaluronic acid and coconut oil. This treatment is suitable for all skin types, even sensitive skin. It has no contraindications. Morning and evening, apply a dab on your hands and massage so that your skin fully absorbs the treatment.
