The hands and face are parts of the body, which are exposed to negative external influences. If we add to this the fact that the skin on them is poor with sebaceous glands and natural fats, it is clear that it requires regular and special care, in order to maintain the flexibility and beautiful appearance. Lack of vitamin can also be the cause of rough and dry skin.

Without adequate protection and care, dry and chapped hands appear and the skin in that area is often prone to scaling. In cold months, this condition worsens due to its persistent exposure to low temperatures, humidity, and wind. Hence, it is very important during the winter to protect your hands with warm gloves that will prevent these negative effects.

If your hands dry and crack easily, then you should use mild natural remedies every day. Find out how to make the perfect hand cream that heals and protects your hands from dryness and scaling.
