My hand skin is not good recently. Maybe cause i often watch my hands and forget to use hands cream. How do you protect your hands skin in winter? I always do not care for my hands skin. Now it is a little pain and i know i should care more about it. Maybe i should keep the habit after washing my hands. But I do not like to wear gloves.

I think it is important that you use creams for your hands just to moisturize them. Whenever you wash your hands, make sure to dry them up before going out. i do not always use cream but when i feel it's dry, I do use it. i also wear mitains. I think it's important. try to keep your hands in your pockets then but i think you should wear gloves. It could me anything from wool or leather. Also do wear a scarf. Do know that when you will get old, the skin of the neck and hands are the first one to wrinkle. If you don't want to look old, you have to protect yourself. You can tell people's age just by looking at those areas so use cream dear and wear gloves. there's nothing much you can do about it

I know that you don't like to wear gloves but they do protect your skin from the elements. I have very dry skin and I slather olive oil on my hands and put on a pair of cotton gloves before I go to bed, In the morning, I mix a dab of petroleum jelly with hand cream and put it on my hands.

I think my skin is very good,haha,Every time after washed my hands I will use some olive oil. It really does well.You can have a try!Since you had a little pain I think you should put your hands in hot water slightly everyday and then put some cream on your skin which makes you feel better!

It's simple, if you don't like dry skin apply lotion everyday at least once a day. I don't really have that problem as I take good care of my skin, and my skin is not naturally dry. But, if you refuse to ware gloves then you should have lotion handy otherwise your skin is going to continue to peal. If they hurt, try washing them less often and try some way to keep them warm when going out. If you don't take better care of your skin, then you're the one who has to suffer for it.
