How should we care for our hands that dry up due to excessive washing?
One of the most effective ways to protect yourself from COVID-19 is to wash your hands. However, all these washing processes can make your hands dry and crack.
Your best option against this problem is to use a moisturizing soap and thoroughly rinsing your hands with cold water (hot water can clean the healthy dermal fats). You can also protect your hands by applying a moisturizing cream every time you wash your hands. If you have a dry skin type, it would be appropriate to use a cream that is suitable for your skin type as a layer and to wear gloves while performing different activities including water (washing the dishes, cleaning, etc.). Moreover, using a humidifier during the night might help to moisturize the air and your skin while you are sleeping.
