Combat Dry Hands this Fall with these Essentials

As Utah’s beautiful fall days begin to arrive, they also signal the coming of dry hands. As the days get cooler and drier, our hands are often the first part of our skin to show the effects. Hands and fingers can become dry and cracked, which can be painful and unsightly. Luckily, there are some ways you can help keep your hands well-hydrated and looking their best. Here are a few of our must-know tips to prevent dry hands this fall in Utah.
Fall means cooler temperatures and the need to protect and heal dry hands. Try these simple steps to keep your hands hydrated and looking their best.

Hydrate and Drink Plenty of Water

Our high altitude can already wick away moisture from our skin year-round. Drinking water is essential for healthy, hydrated skin. Dehydration is one of the main causes of dry skin, so it’s critical to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water throughout the day. Aim to drink at least eight glasses a day, which will also help to flush out toxins and improve your overall health.

Exfoliate Regularly

Regular exfoliation helps to remove dead skin cells, which can clog pores and cause dryness. It’s important to use gentle exfoliating products, such as a sugar scrub or a pumice stone, which won’t irritate your delicate skin. Regular exfoliation will also help to stimulate blood flow, which can help to keep your skin healthy and radiant.

Enjoying a professional spa treatment will not only get your skin ready for cooler weather but also all those holiday parties as well. Try the Coconut Cream Firming Treatment with a rich coconut sugar scrub known for its ancient healing properties. It not only smooths skin but also increases circulation. Your treatment will finish with a relaxing massage application of coconut firming body lotion to tighten the skin and restore moisture.

Use Gentle Soaps 

Harsh detergents and chemicals found in regular hand soaps can strip your skin of its natural oils, leading to dryness and cracking. Using gentle soaps with added moisturizing properties, such as olive oil or shea butter, is a great way to keep your hands hydrated in the cool months. Always remember to wash your hands with warm rather than hot water, which can cause skin to become even drier.

Slather on that Moisturizer 

Applying moisturizer frequently is one of the best ways to prevent and heal dry hands. Apply hand lotion after each wash to lock in moisture and protect your skin from the elements.

As the temperature drops, it’s important to take extra care to keep your hands hydrated and soft. Our skin needs added moisture during the fall and winter months, so stay hydrated. You can also prepare and protect your hands by exfoliating regularly, using gentle soaps, applying moisturizer, and even wearing gloves. Following these suggestions to prevent dry hands means that smooth, soft, and radiant skin can be yours all year long.
