4. Lock in the moisture
Keeping your hands well moisturized with thick hand creams — particularly overnight — can keep the skin on your hands looking healthy and glowing. If you’re prone to hand dermatitis (redness, peeling, cracking skin), it’s a good idea to minimize prolonged contact with water. In those cases, it’s best to replace frequent hand washing with hand sanitizer gels.
5. We Can’t Forget About The Nails
Water or chemical exposure, seasonal weather changes, and even genetics, can all lead to brittle, breaking nails. But the right supplements can help. Taking a 2.5 mg dose of the B vitamin biotin improves nail strength and reduces brittleness after six to nine months, says a study published in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology.
