Ne­glect­ing your hands and feet

Hair - - Skin Practices -

Why: As Dr. Goel ex­plains, “Hands and feet are sub­jected to max­i­mum wear and tear due to sun ex­po­sure, soaps, chem­i­cals, dust, etc and re­quire spe­cial care in the win­ter months. The feet tend to crack and it’s im­por­tant that you don’t ne­glect them as they are con­stantly ex­posed to dirt.” In­stead: “Ap­ply a thick foot care cream and wear soft cot­ton socks at night. For your hands, use oils or spe­cial hand creams with in­gre­di­ents such as sal­i­cylic acid, lac­tic acid or glyc­er­ine that keeps the skin hy­drated, smooth and soft,” he says.
