Our hands: We use them in almost everything that we do, like playing polo, cooking, or working. But why is it so crucial to take proper care of them?
It is, in fact, just as important as taking care of our face, or as we at By Robins think, even more important.
Our hands reveal our true age as it is the body part that shows the first signs of aging. They are directly exposed on a daily basis, and in combination with the thin skin at the back of our hands, they are even more vulnerable. Neglecting to take care of our hands can make them look older than they are supposed to.
Now, as the colder days are here, this period comes paired with dry, sometimes even cracked, skin. The temperature outside plays a big part in this as well, which results in dry air that can strip away the moisture from your skin. But remember: this only happens when you neglect to take proper care of your hands.
Fortunately, we have some tips to help you care for better and protect your hands during the frosty season. Make them feel soft and healthy amidst the chill with these handy (pun-intended!) guide!
1. Try to avoid warm water as much as possible.
Wash your hands in cold or lukewarm water instead. Warm water strips the skin of sebum, the healthy fats and oils that are necessary for the health and moisture of the skin. Frequent washing in warm water can eventually cause the skin to become dehydrated and dry, so best to avoid this.
2. Wear gloves before you go outside.
A pair doesn’t just keep your hands warm, but can also help protect them against moisture loss and keep natural oils in the skin. This will prevent them from drying out.
3. Use a hand cream on a daily basis.
Doing this before going outside and after hand washing is an absolute must. A hand cream helps provide hydration and locks the moisture in the skin which leaves you with soft hands. By Robins’ Signature Hand Cream SPF 15 is a 100% vegan hand cream that is formulated with key ingredients like aloe vera and jojoba oil to deeply moisturize the hands. SPF helps protect the hands from the sun’s UV rays and prevents premature aging.
