Shed away wrinkly skin

The skin on the surface of your fingers and toes is different from the skin covering the rest of your body. It’s thicker due to constant contact, abrasion, and pressure. Your fingertips and toe tips contains tough connective tissues. If you soak in water long enough, protective oils get washed-out from your skin, and it will turn all wrinkly for a while. During the winter season, environmental change is a big factor in causing wrinkles to your hands and feet. Sometimes it can also peel the outer layer of your skin. Do not fret. Dry or wrinkly hands can often be treated with over-the-counter remedies.

Tips:

* Using hand repair cream, thick moisturizing, and an old home remedy is always sufficient.

* If you suffer from severe dryness of skin, spread petroleum jelly on your hands and feet and cover them with cotton gloves overnight.

* Also use anti-bacterial soaps, and shea or cocoa butter based products for bathing.

* It is always advisable to wear gloves while doing any kind of household chores.

* Take luke-warm showers instead of hot water bath.

* Use good thick oil-based hand and foot creams in winter.

* Drink at least 64 ounces of water each day which helps to keep your skin hydrated from the inside out.

Visit a dermatologist if home remedies have failed, particularly if you have other symptoms of illness.
