Make a habit of wearing gloves every time you go outside. Even if you are out for just a few minutes, the elements can do some damage. Also, be sure to always wear rubber gloves when washing dishes and doing other household cleaning. The hot water and chemicals in detergents and cleaners can dehydrate and damage your hands.
Humidify the air in your house. You can use an actual humidifier or just place a saucer of water near your heater. The extra moisture in the air will help stop the dry heat from drying out your skin -- including your hands.
Start a routine that every time you wash your hands, you automatically use a hand lotion or cream. Look for products made with natural ingredients. A couple of our favorites include Kiehl's Unusually Rich But Not Greasy At All Hand Cream with SPF 10 and Burts Bees Thoroughly Therapeutic Honey & Grapeseed Oil Hand Creme.
