How to Repair Dehydrated Skin: Home Remedies for Dry Hands

Home Remedies for Dry Hands The skin of your hands constantly suffers from contact with various detergents and antiseptics, and is often exposed to the sun, wind and cold. As a result, it may become dehydrated and in need of some extra TLC. Let’s figure out together what home remedies you can use to repair dehydrated skin and make your hands soft and supple.

If the skin of your hands is dehydrated, they won’t look presentable. When skin lacks moisture, it loses its firmness and elasticity. In addition, dehydrated skin is prone to redness, flaking, and even cracking. Dry hands often feel tight and itchy, which causes a great deal of discomfort.

Dehydrated skin isn’t the kind of problem that will eventually go away on its own. You need to upgrade your hand care routine to repair dehydrated skin and keep it from losing more moisture. Here are a few home remedies that will give the skin of your hands the moisture it needs, as well as help to protect it from the environment.

Warm Oil Hand Baths

Warm oil hand baths are a great remedy for restoring the dehydrated skin of the hands. To achieve a visible result, you need to give your hands a warm oil bath once every two or three days, preferably in the evening.

You can use any carrier oil you want; olive oil and sweet almond oil are a great choice. Heat the oil to 40 °С and add 10 drops of essential oil, for example, bergamot or rosemary. Immerse your hands in the oil mixture for 10 minutes.

After the procedure, thoroughly wash your hands with very mild soap, towel them dry, and apply a moisturising and nourishing hand cream. After just a few such baths, you will notice that the skin of your hands has become hydrated, soft, smooth, and supple.

DIY Hand Packs

DIY hand packs also are a great remedy for the dehydrated skin of the hands. You can easily make them with the ingredients you have in your kitchen. Try mixing plain, unsweetened Greek yogurt with the same amount of aloe vera juice and adding a pinch of cinnamon. Apply the mixture to the cleansed skin of your hands and let it sit for 10-15 minutes, then rinse. This pack will deeply hydrate your skin, restore its natural firmness and elasticity, strengthen the nails, and lighten the skin.

Here’s one more DIY nourishing and repairing hand pack for the skin of the hands. Thoroughly mix an egg yolk, a tablespoon of honey, and a tablespoon of any carrier oil. Heat the mixture up a bit, apply to your hands, and put on a pair of cotton gloves to boost the effect. Rinse the pack off in 20 minutes and apply a nourishing hand cream. Repeat the procedure every 4 or 5 days.

Thanks to home remedies, you can restore the dehydrated skin of your hands and make it soft and smooth again. However, you should also keep in mind that you need to make an effort to keep your hands this way. This is why it is important to take care of your hands every day by using a moisturising and nourishing cream, serum, or balm.
