The skin on our hands is much tougher and thicker than most of the skin on our body, they have to be; they are worked very hard, always out in the cold, in water, using chemicals or working with machinery.
If left untreated, your hands could crack, bleed or even develop into a much worse skin condition such as eczema, psoriasis or dermatitis, or even bacterial infections. It doesn’t have to be this way, soft, comfortable, beautiful skin on your hands can almost always be achieved, whatever job you do or trials you put your hands through, with just a little care and the correct natural products.
What causes Dry Cracked Hands?
There are a variety of factors that could be causing dry, cracked skin on the hands but the following are thought to be the most common…
Washing hands multiple times a day can very easily dry out the skin. Allowing sensitive skin to come into unprotected contact with hot water can also cause it to dry out, as well as using strong, chemical-based soaps.
If you are surrounded by low humidity, this may well account for your problem. The combinations of low temperatures and low humidity in the winter or high temperatures and low humidity in the summer can wreak havoc on your hands and cause them to lose a significant amount of moisture.
Submerging your hands in hot water, gardening, coming into contact with chemicals or even repeatedly exposing wet hands to open air could all cause damage to your skin and could very easily be the reasons behind your Dry Cracked Hands.
If your hands come into contact with something you are actually allergic to (such as animal dander, pollen, etc) then dry skin on the hands could actually be a symptom of an allergic reaction. So, if you find your conditions worsens after coming into contact with substances such as detegents, cleaning products, metals, plants, costmetics, make up, creams, soaps or certain fabrics then this could indicate a skin allergy.
And finally, the one you just can’t control. Genes. Sometimes we simply inherit the misfortune of suffering with dry skin on the hands. However, this absolutely does not mean you can’t treat it!
How can I treat Dry Cracked Hands?
Once you know what could be causing your Dry Cracked Hands you can start to work out the best way to treat them.
Avoiding the common causes of dry hands is highly recommended. So, when washing up always wear gloves and keep the temperature to a minimum. Avoid overusing air conditioning units or exposing wet hands to cold air, and try to minimise treating your hands harshly. That means finding an all-natural, cold processed soap.
It may be worth visiting your local GP to determine if you do suffer from an allergy, especially if they are infected.
