As we adapt to life in a COVID-19 world, the practice of washing your hands more frequently has become a new normal. Without proper care, this can lead to dry, cracked hands. Washing your hands frequently is one of the best ways to protect yourself from COVID-19, but treating them afterward can help keep them moisturized and reduce cracking and soreness.
Try these tips to help keep your hands healthy:
- Use moisturizing soap.
- Wash with cool water, rather than hot. Hot water washes away healthy oils.
- Use lotion after washing.
- Wear gloves when doing the dishes or cleaning.
- Use a humidifier while you sleep.
