Dry hands, we've all been there. Everyone experiences dry hands on occasion, and usually, it's nothing more than itchy and annoying. But sometimes those dry, itchy hands can turn into cracked, painful hands.
Cracked hands can bleed, make the skin feel tight, and worst of all make it painful to use your hands. The pain of cracked hands can limit mobility, making it difficult to do your everyday tasks and activities. Making the pain one of the biggest problems of having cracked hands. Luckily there are a few easy ways to treat your cracked hands!
1. Find the cause:
One of the easiest ways to treat your cracked hands is to find the cause behind it, and eliminate it as best you can. Cracked hands can be caused by a number of different things. Climate, over-washing, alcohol-based cleaners and products, genetics and age, and chemicals, just to name a few.
2. Avoid Synthetic Soaps:
Many of the soaps today are filled with chemicals that dry the skin out, which compromises the skin's ability to self heal. Try finding and using soaps with natural, organic, and moisturizing ingredients.
3. gLOVE Treat with Parasilk Paraffin Wax Treatment:
Paraffin wax is known for it's ability to moisturize and treat cracked skin (also great for sore achy hands, or arthritis), and is typically used in spas to treat dry skin. The gLOVE Treat gloves and mitts give you the ability to use this wonderful treatment on your own time, in your home or on the go, with next to no mess, and cheaper than the spa!
All of Parasilk's wax products are infused with the highest quality organic cold pressed virgin coconut oil, and lavender oil, which has great skin benefits all their own! Check out our website to see how our products can benefit you.
4. Wear Gloves While Cleaning
Wearing gloves while cleaning is essential in order to protect your skin from the chemicals. These chemicals can dry the skin out, causing it to crack. Try using natural chemicals and detergents, and wearing rubber gloves while cleaning.
So many of us are so focused on exfoliating our face that we forget to exfoliate the rest of our bodies, including our hands. Try making a moisturizing sugar scrub using organic fine-grained sugar, and organic extra virgin olive oil. Use it once a week in the shower on your body and hands for a great way to stay soft!
