A British doctor does not recommend using regular toilet soap for washing your hands, which deprives the skin of its natural moisturizing lubricant – sebum. The dermatologist recommends using a mild, unscented soap or a moisturizing cleanser.

NBN reports this with reference to the Skincare physicians resource.

According to Sobell, it is equally important to pay attention to the temperature The water in which you wash your hands should not be hot. To prevent your palms from drying out, use warm water, this way you will not remove sebum from the skin.

After washing, immediately apply a light cream or lotion to your hands, which will help retain moisture in the skin. At night, apply a rich cream or ointment with Vaseline on your palms.

The specialist also advises not to forget about gloves and mittens in winter, so that your hands are warm and the skin loses moisture more slowly.
