In Winter, it’s easy to forget about the status of our hands and feet because of the cold. Since our feet are usually wrapped up in warm socks and our hands are constantly facing chilling cold, we can easily overlook the way they look and feel.
Inevitably, the majority of us end up sliding a foot up our leg or rubbing an arm with our hands only to realize that our skin feels nothing short of positively scaly. Our hands and feet are prone to dryness more than other places on our bodies, which is why they must be tended to just as much – if not more!
Fortunately, with a few simple changes, you can reclaim that soft look and feel for both your hands and your feet.
Moisturize More Often
Unlike other parts of our body, the hands and feet are notoriously easy to overlook. Though we spend time applying moisturizer to our face and lotion to our bodies, it is easy to forget that our hands and feet go through quite a lot in a day and require a little extra care.
We wash our hands continuously and spend all day grinding our feet into our shoes. The end result is rough and dry skin that needs a little extra care. Adding a little extra lotion to your natural skincare routine for these areas can dramatically improve their quality.
Use An Intensive Restorative Process and Cover Them Up
If you notice that your hands and feet are in desperate need of care, it might be time to call in the big guns. When your skin gets really bad, it can be beneficial to use an intense approach to moisturizing. For dry and cracked feet, our Deep Repair Balm or a comparable equivalent to your feet and then cover them with socks.
For this process, don’t be afraid to use too much. The more, the better. Thick socks are also best since it is less likely that the product will bleed through. You can also repeat this process with your hands and a nice soft pair of fabric gloves. The next morning, simply throw the gloves and socks in the wash.
Use A Standard Treatment
Sometimes you want to improve your situation without taking up any extra work. Products like the Bellus Hand and Foot Skin Candy line are an excellent way to add a little something extra to your natural skincare routine with truly great results.
These products are filled with all kinds of good nutrients for your skin to help repair them easily over time rather than taking one of the more intense approaches. Add this to your regular routine for instant results.
Repairing your skin is a process that can take some time, but with a little patience and the right natural skincare products, you can make magic happen. Our hands and feet go through a lot in a day, which is why finding a good way to maintain them is so important. Depending on your situation, you might need full repair or more of a maintenance approach.
Figure out what works best from you and add it to your routine for soft skin in these troubled areas.
