Dry hands are fairly common and are caused mostly by environmental factors. People who often wash dishes or live in a cold, dry area may be more prone to severe dry hands.
Although not strictly a harmful illness, it may be quite unpleasant.
What Causes Dry Hands?
The weather is often responsible for dry hands and mostly in the winter. When the temperature gets chilly, the air dries up, and the body is unable to retain moisture. Dry skin and hands are caused by a lack of moisture in the air.
People who often wash their hands or use hand sanitizer, such as physicians or nurses, are more likely to have dry hands than others. Others, such as dishwashers and hair stylists, may be more prone to dry hands as a result of regular contact with chemicals and cleansers.
Some people may suffer dry skin on their hands as a result of an underlying medical problem.
How do you fix dry hands?
Try the following methods to improve dry hands:
1. Wear gloves
Consider wearing gloves if your hands are regularly submerged in water, such as when cleaning dishes. Gloves protect your skin from being depleted of its natural oils by the water.
2. Decrease stress
There may be a link between stress and eczema. So, if you find your hands experiencing eczema-caused dry skin, take some time for self-care to relieve tension.
3. Apply aloe vera
Because of its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory characteristics, aloe vera is a prominent component in many skin care products. Aloe vera is available over the counter and can be used as a natural, safe moisturizer for the skin.
4. Avoid soap
The chemicals often present in soaps can be drying to the hands. To avoid drying out their hands, people should avoid washing them excessively.
5. Use a humidifier
Humidifiers are frequently used by people who have respiratory problems to help them breathe. A humidifier, on the other hand, can have a significant influence on preserving the skin from drying out when individuals live in a dry climate or during the winter months.
