What does it mean to have damaged hands?

Damaged hands are often characterized by:

  • Redness : it tends to appear after prolonged contact with hot water or after the use of detergents.

  • Flakes : when the skin is dry and damaged, thin layers of skin peel off.

  • Itching : when your hand itches, it can be a sign of skin dryness.

  • Cracks and crevices: when hands are dry, they can develop cracks. This can be due to external aggressions or poor hydration.

  • A feeling of roughness: irregularities forming on the skin's surface make the skin feel rough to the touch.

  • Tugging sensations: these are characterized by a feeling of discomfort in the hands.

How to prevent damage to your hands?

Damaged hands are often due to skin dryness, a decrease in micro-circulation, an accumulation of dead skin, and irritating factors. To avoid damaging your hands, it is advisable to adopt certain practices:

  • Wash them with a soap that is superfatted and cold saponified;

  • Wear gloves during winter, as well as during manual activities (cleaning, gardening, DIY) to protect them;

  • Focus on nutrients that promote the regeneration of skin cells.

Tips for treating damaged hands.

To care for your damaged hands, remember to nourish and hydrate them. Here are some tips to know:

  • Wear gloves for your household chores to avoid redness.

  • After washing your hands, apply a nourishing balm.

  • Perform an exfoliation, this allows the skin on your hands to more easily absorb other treatments. In addition, an exfoliation helps to remove dead cells that promote skin dehydration and enhance the effect of other treatments. If your hands are sore, opt for gentler and less aggressive exfoliations.

  • Hydrate your hands at night to rejuvenate your skin. Indeed, in the evening, you can apply a balm to your hands, focusing on irritated areas. Apply a small amount to your hands and massage until your skin fully absorbs the treatment.
