Dermatologist provides insights for healthier skin
Do you have dry skin? Winter provides the perfect conditions for irritant, hand dermatitis (aka chapped hands). This is because:
- It’s cold and flu season so you’re washing your hands often.
- Most soaps that you use for hand washing are too harsh (dishwashing soap in the kitchen, commercial soap in public bathrooms, etc.).
These harsh soaps don’t rinse off well, meaning they continue to remove your skin’s natural oils long after you’ve stepped away from
the sink. Plus, scented soaps often contain allergens that add another layer of rash to already chapped hands.
- The weather is cold and windy outside, pulling moisture from exposed skin such as your hands.
The heater is running inside, dehumidifying the air and pulling more moisture from your chapped hands.
Even when used, most people often apply it in a way that doesn’t maximize skin hydration to heal dry skin and chapped hands. Plus, many hand creams contain allergens which add another layer of rash to already chapped hands.
