Have you ever observed how doing anything can damage our hands? Right from doing chores around the house to excessive water exposure to round the clock typing from mobiles to laptops. All result in the same – dry and damaged hands. And, they get worse if you are the one handling the menial chores of your house from dusting to washing utensils to laundry with all detergents being equally harsh. Makes sense to go eco-friendly, no? Or, I would rather call it skin-friendly!
One day while doing my household work, one of my fingers started bleeding. That was when I realized how cruelly I was ignoring to take care of my dry and damaged hands. Adding to that is the bad habit of washing my hands frequently. There is a specific term for it but let me just say this habit is categorized under Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. So, before you go down the same road I did, I would plead the case of your finger tips with you.
Exfoliate your dry and damaged hands with sugar twice to thrice a week. Use the squeezed lemon, if available. Nothing works better.
Excess Water Exposure
Do not wet your hands too much. More your hands get wet, the drier they become. And, we are not even talking about the dish washing liquids or hand wash which are way too harsh on your skin.
