How to Get Rid of Callus on Hands?
Calluses form when your skin hardens as a result of dry weather conditions or too much pressure on your skin. The most important step in treating callus, especially on hands, is moisturizing. Soak your hands in warm water for about ten minutes to soften your skin. Then apply one of our hand treatments to lock the moisture in to efficiently treat the skin condition. Gently rub a lotion and repeat this process to maintain your soft skin. Maintaining the use of a hand moisturizer and even carrying one around with you is a great way to prevent any future callus formation.
What Causes Extremely Dry Hands?
Extremely dry hands are a result of harsh weather conditions, rough work or exposure to chemicals like detergents. Prolonged exposure to water, especially hot water, can wash away the natural oils that protect your skin. The best way to avoid this is to apply moisturizer right after taking a shower when your skin is still damp. This will trap the moisture in your hand and rest of your body, and prevent them from drying out. Moisturizing, and rubbing the skin with lotion frequently is crucial to treat dry hands and avoid skin conditions such as calluses.
