The cold season is a hard time for our hands and it’s no surprise that they tend to feel drier when the temperatures drop. The combination of freezing cold conditions outside and dry heated air inside removes the natural moisture from the skin and often leaves it rough and stressed. Furthermore, when the temperature drops, our body produces fewer lipids, which are important for our skin to build up a moisture barrier.
But there are other factors to take into account during the winter months. For example, we tend to wash our hands more than usual to get rid of germs from winter bugs. Using hot water and harsh soap products can damage the outer protective coating of the skin, causing it to lose even more moisture. Make sure to always use a hand repair cream after washing your hands to replenish any moisture lost and create a protective moisture barrier over the skin. NIVEA Nourishing Hand Cream creates a protective moisture barrier over the skin and swiftly revitalizes dry skin, leaving your hands feeling exceptionally soft and deeply hydrated. Made with natural almond oil and shea butter for long-lasting 24-hour care.
