Hydrating hands and feet at home

Below are 4 of our favorite masks for hands and feet to hydrate your dry skin this winter.

Sometimes all of the lotion in the world still can’t save the driest hands – that’s where the Perfect Ten Hand and Cuticle Mask comes in. This innovative hand mask is loaded with nourishing ingredients like shea butter, macadamia oil, coconut oil, and rosehip oil to hydrate and soothe dry, rough hands while also softening cuticles. After 10 minutes, remove the gloves and massage any remaining cream into your skin. Your hands will feel softer, smoother, and more rejuvenated – trust us. 

Pro tip: Wrap your hands in a warm towel or use a heating pad to open up your pores and make sure the ingredients penetrate deep into the skin to boost hydration.

"Smooth Hands. 

I love the rosé fingers hand mask. It always leaves my hands super hydrated. It gives an extra boost more than just putting on lotion" Nadine

"Hydrate And Renewing Hands. I LOVE these hand masks! They are so easy to use and they really do make my hands (and my feet) feel soft and smooth. These are my go-to treatments at home between manicures. The strawberry scent is light and refreshing, and the gloves fit well without being too tight. I usually wear them for about 20 minutes, and by the time I take them off, my hands feel like they've been through a spa treatment. Very nourishing and restoring to my hands and cuticles. I would definitely recommend these to anyone who wants to give their hands a little TLC." Sam C.

"Love These! My hands are so dry because I bartend and they are always in water. These gloves are amazing! They made my hands feel so soft and they smell amazing!" Nina S.

Other ways to prevent dry hands and feet during winter

These at-home spa treatments can be even more effective when incorporating simple hacks into your daily routine to maintain moisture long after using a treatment. 

Combat winter dryness with these quick tips:

Breathable socks: Wear socks made from breathable materials like cotton or bamboo. They help maintain moisture while preventing excessive sweating, keeping your feet comfortable and dry.

Wear gloves: Protect your hands from the cold by wearing gloves whenever you head outdoors. Look for insulated, waterproof gloves to shield your skin from harsh weather conditions.

Use a humidifier: Keep the air in your home moisturized by using a humidifier. This not only prevents dry skin but also increases moisture in the air to reduce the chances of cracked skin.

Hydrate from within: Don't forget to drink plenty of water! Hydrating your body from within helps keep your skin hydrated too.

Apply moisturizer regularly: Keep a travel-sized moisturizer handy and apply it to your hands and feet throughout the day, especially after washing. Look for products with ingredients like shea butter or glycerin for extra hydration.

Exfoliate gently: Use a mild exfoliator to remove dead skin cells from your hands and feet. This helps moisturizers penetrate better, leaving your skin smoother and more receptive to hydration.

Avoid hot water: Resist the urge to take hot showers – they can strip your skin of natural oils, leading to dryness. Opt for lukewarm water instead to protect your skin's moisture barrier.

By incorporating these simple tricks into your routine along with hand and foot masks, you'll keep your extremities soft, smooth, and winter-ready all season long.
