Tips for stressed hand and feet
Hand and foot care in autumn
When it gets colder outside, feet and hands need extra care. In our article, we reveal what you should pay attention to when caring for your feet and hands in autumn.
Hand care in autumn
We all know it! When the temperature drops and changes constantly, soaps and hand sanitizers are in constant use, the skin on our hands suffers, becomes drier and even cracks. It's time to switch our hand care to "autumn mode" too.
Tips for stressed hands in autumn:
Clean your hands gently! For example with our Orange Oil Hand Soap Orange Oil. It gently cleanses the skin without drying it out.
Make sure your hands are completely dry after washing your hands, but never rub the skin!
Choose a rich hand cream!
Exfoliate your hands once a week. It removes the dead skin cells, optimally prepares the hands for subsequent care and makes the skin soft to the touch.
Regular hand massages and nightly intensive cures are popular in autumn! What does a nocturnal intensive cure look like? Simply apply a particularly rich hand cream before going to bed and pull on cotton gloves.
Hand baths with nourishing oils 1-2 times a week are also beneficial for dry hands.
In the cold season, however, not only does the skin on our hands suffer, but also the fingernails can become more brittle. The solution? They also need extra care. For example, nail oil is an effective way to get brittle nails and dry cuticles under control. It penetrates deep into the skin and nails, moisturizes and strengthens in the long term.
Foot care in autumn
Cold temperatures and dry heating air not only affect the skin on our hands. After all, our feet are already in autumn - often all day long - in boots, thicker socks or boots. The consequences? Clearly a lack of air circulation, heat build-up, often sweaty feet, calluses or calluses.
Tips for stressed and dry feet in autumn:
Take off your shoes and socks! Yes, not only in summer, also in autumn! Your feet need air to breathe in every season.
Use body creams or therapeutical creams as a foot care balm which provides effective immediate relief for stressed feet. You can add some drops of tea tree oil as a antibacrerial ingredient. It helps also prevent athete's foot.
Treat yourself to a warm foot bath regularly . It prepares the feet for the subsequent treatment. It cleans, softens the skin on the soles of the feet and nails and softens calluses.
After the foot bath, the next step is foot peeling.
To counteract unpleasant calluses , use nourishing foot packs or foot masks at regular intervals. They give your feet valuable moisture and they can relax and/or invigorate.
With a foot peeling we can gently rub off the calloused areas and at the same time stimulate the blood circulation.
