As the leaves change colors and the air turns crisp, here comes the beauty of autumn. But along with the pumpkin spice lattes and cozy sweaters, the fall season brings unique challenges for our skin. Your hands, often exposed to the elements, can take a hit. At Paume, we understand the importance of maintaining soft, nourished hands during the fall. In this blog post, we'll share some top tips for fall hand care to help you embrace the season with confidence and keep your hands looking and feeling their best.
1. Hydration is Key:
With the drop in temperature, the air becomes drier, which can lead to moisture loss from your skin. The first rule of thumb for fall hand care is to stay hydrated. Make sure to drink plenty of water, and use a high-quality hand cream, such as our Probiotic Hand Balm, regularly.
2. Gentle Cleansing:
Autumn is a season of change, and this includes your skincare routine. Consider switching to a milder, hydrating hand soap to avoid over-drying your hands.
3. Protect Against UV Rays:
Just because summer is over doesn't mean you should ditch the sunscreen. In fact, UV rays can still cause damage in the fall. Apply a hand cream with SPF to shield your skin from harmful sun exposure. This is especially important if you're spending time outdoors during autumn activities.
4. Exfoliate for Renewal:
Fall hand care also involves exfoliation. Gently exfoliate your hands once a week using a mild exfoliating scrub to remove dead skin cells and encourage cell turnover. Exfoliation helps your hand creams penetrate deeper, giving you better results.
5. Nail and Cuticle Care:
Don't forget about your nails and cuticles. The fall season can lead to brittle nails and dry cuticles. Use a nourishing cuticle oil to keep them soft and healthy. Regularly trim and file your nails to prevent breakage and maintain a polished look.
6. Moisturize Overnight:
For an extra dose of hydration, apply a rich hand cream or oil before bedtime. Slip on cotton gloves, such as our Overnight Hydration Gloves, to lock in moisture while you sleep. Wake up to incredibly soft and rejuvenated hands.
7. Warm Water, Not Hot:
Resist the urge to wash your hands with hot water. Hot water can strip away natural oils and leave your skin feeling dry and tight. Use lukewarm water when washing your hands to maintain their moisture.
