Natural hand care tips for sensitive hands

Sensitive hands are a common problem. A third of women say that they suffer from dryness and irritation on their hands, and the cold, wind and rain of winter can take a further toll.

Some of the issues most frequently experienced by those with sensitive hands are chapped or cracked skin, a parched or leathery appearance, a feeling of tightness and itching.

What can cause sensitive hands?

It is not surprising that so many suffer with these problems. The hands work harder than any other part of the body yet they have fewer sebaceous glands.

This means that they cannot so easily maintain adequate moisture levels, especially with frequent exposure to detergents like washing up liquid and drying hand washes.

Some people are particularly sensitive to certain ingredients, such as artificial fragrances and SLS, which are often found in hand wash, soap and hand cream. Reactions to ingredients can cause dry, sore hands which are then vulnerable to further damage. 

A thorough hand care regime is vital to keep your hands healthy and looking good.

 

How to look after sensitive hands

  • Use rubber gloves when washing up and using harsh detergents like cleaning products
  • Use gardening gloves to protect your hands from wear and tear
  • Improve circulation and release tension by gently stretching or bending your fingers for a few seconds several times a day
  • Moisturise your hands several times a day
  • Avoid bars of soap which are very drying on the skin owing to their pH level
  • Avoid liquid soaps that contain harsh ingredients like SLS that can cause further sensitivity
