Causes of hand distress:

  • Cold winters and hot, dry summers can be incredibly harsh on your hands, dehydrating them and causing that coarse and dry sensation between your fingers and on the palm of your hand which leads to cracked hands. If you don't use hand care products, especially at these times of year your hands are probably gasping for some hydration. You should make sure to moisturise your hands often to prevent cracked hands, especially after washing them to lock in moisture to your skin to prevent it from dehydrating due to dry, harsh weather conditions.
  • Have you been exposed to the sun without sunscreen? There’s a possibility that they’ve had sun overexposure and are now peeling as the dead skin cells flake off. A simple way to avoid this is to make sure you're protecting your skin from the sun every day - not only is sunscreen hydrating for the skin but it will help to prevent long-term sun damage, as well as keeping your hands from becoming cracked hands. 
  • Much like the rest of your skin, hands can be sensitive too, so it's important to take proper care of them and take notice when you have itchy hands, cracked hands, or dry hands as you could have sensitive skin. You should also makes sure you're using a hand cream specially created to soothe sensitive skin as this will be the best hand cream for you.
  • If you suffer from a skin condition such as eczema, you may get dry and itchy hands due to reactions that appear on your skin and inflammation. If this is the case for you, you must seek medical advice as they are able to prescribe the best hand cream for you that has medicine in to help treat your skin. Itchiness can also be caused by chemicals in laundry detergents or hand washes, so try switching to fragrance free, more moisturising hand soaps and see if you get some hand relief from those.
