When you meet someone, you shake hands with them, you extend your hands to hold someone, you tend people with your hands and you greet people with your hands, you make a deal with your hands and you wave goodbye with your hands. Hands are the first human touch that connects two people. And this is why people judge you with your hands. No matter how hard you try your hands tend to get dry in winter season, after all they go through a lot daily. Just applying moisturizer in the morning is not enough, you have to do a lot more to protect your hands from the harsh season. Here are a few home remedies to protect and nourish your hands.


  1. Almond Oil

Almond oil is a rich source of antioxidants, Vitamin E and healthy fatty acids which treat and tend dry and rough hands. It keeps your hands soft, smooth and supple. It also provides your hands with anti-ageing benefits. Massage your hands with almond oil, at least two times a day to keep them soft and nourished.



  1. Aloe Vera

Aloe vera is the most used product to treat any skin related problem. The good part of aloe vera is that it is beneficial for both dry as well as oily skin types. The aloe vera plant stores water in its thick fleshy leaves and that is where we extract the aloe vera gel from. This gel is very hydrating in nature which helps to treat the rough and dry hands. Gently massage your hands with aloe vera gel 2-3 times a day for best results. The best thing about aloe vera gel is that easily absorbs in the skin and does not give a greased up feel while deeply nourishing the skin from inside.

  1. Body Butter

The organic body butter is another great way to nourish and soften your skin. A body butter is a blend of various oils that together give necessary nourishment and moisture to your skin. It reaches deep within the layers of the skin and provides nourishment from inside. Another good thing about a body butter is that it is easily absorbed in the body and does not give a greased up, oily or made up look. If you have a very dry skin, it is best to use chocolate or Shea body butter.


  1. Oatmeal Honey Mask

Mix two tablespoons of oatmeals with one teaspoon of honey and some water. Add a few drops of lemon juice to this mixture. Apply this mixture on your hands and leave it on for 15 minutes. Wash it off while scrubbing your hands with the mixture and pat dry. Oatmeal helps to scrub off the dead and dry skin from the topmost layer of the skin and exfoliates it. Honey contains antioxidants that cleanse, moisturise and nourish the skin. Lemon, the rich source of Vitamin C, cleanses the hands and even tones them. Thus giving you clean, soft, smooth and supple hands. Apply this mask on your hands every day to prevent your hands from the harsh winter weather.

  1. Massage

Massage is a great way to treat and pamper yourself. A massage with a good oil not only improves blood circulation in the body it also nourishes the skin from inside. In winter prefer a massage with a warm oil like sesame seeds oil or mustard seed oil. This will not only treat the damaged and dry skin, but it will also keep your body warm and protect it from winter.


  1. Fruits

Fruits contain essential ingredients that are very beneficial for a good and healthy skin. Like avocado contains Vitamin A, E, and C along with monounsaturated fats that help to get rid of dry skin. It also fights the signs of ageing. Similarly, banana and peach are also very beneficial for a radiant looking skin. While applying avocado or other fruit directly to your skin might seem weird, applying organic moisturizers that carry the extracts of these fruits seems completely fine. Try one of the moisturizers that is made of fruit extracts like peach avocado moisturizer or papaya moisturizer to heal your dry and flaky hands.

This winter pledge that you will only have a great looking and best feeling skin and not dry and rough hands, so that you do not hesitate to shake hands after a business deal or holding your friend’s baby.
