5 Best Hand Creams for Dry, Cracked Knuckles and Chapped Hands

woman-hand-cream

Fall brings cooler temperatures and dryer air, which can wreak havoc on your hands. Your hands start to dry out and you may feel as though they never get moisturized, no matter how much lotion you put on them. It is hard for hand creams or lotions to really work their magic because most people wash their hands and dry them all day. So what are you supposed to do?

 

If you know that your hands get dry during the cooler months, it is important to apply a generous amount of moisturizer at night. This will allow the healing properties to set in. Here are a couple tips to moisturize dry hands during the fall and winter seasons.

Tip #1: Sleep in Socks

We know you are probably thinking, “Wait…I thought this article was about dry hands.” It still is, so don’t worry. We are instructing you to put socks on your hands when you go to bed. To help soothe your hands, massage shea butter or coconut oil on your hands before putting socks over them. This gives your hands the TLC that they need. Make sure that the socks are thick enough to the point where the shea butter or coconut oil won’t seep through onto your sheets.

 

When you wake up, your hands (and your nails) will be in much better shape. For best results concerning your fingernails, remove nail polish before doing the overnight sock treatment.

 

Tip #2: Choose the Best Hand Cream

Vitamin E Oil

Vitamin E oil contains awesome antioxidants that work to fight free radicals in the body. It also speeds up healing, while reducing possible scarring in the process. If you haven’t used it before, vitamin E oil is a great moisturizer for sensitive skin. Try a little bit on a small area before applying a large amount to your hands.

 

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil contains saturated fat, which serves as a great moisturizer. Coconut oil is popularly used in the world of DIY health and beauty. The lauric acid in coconut oil works to kill bacteria and viruses, helping to sooth cracked knuckles or hands.

 

Olive Oil

Olive oil has been used as a beauty agent in the Mediterranean for many years. It is in most everyone’s pantry, just like it should be! It helps to soften the skin and make it more supple. Oh, and we forgot to mention that the healthy fatty acids have anti-aging benefits too!

 

Aloe Vera

While it may seem less appealing to use fresh aloe gel from the plant, it is truly beneficial for those with rough hands and knuckles. The properties in aloe work to calm inflammation and protect your skin’s outer layer. You can also moisturize with a combination of aloe vera and a few drops of vitamin E oil.

 

Shea Butter

Shea butter is absolutely ideal for softening hands and rehydrating dry skin. Because it is very thick, it is commonly mixed with vitamin E oil to make for easier application.

 

We hope you use some of these this fall and winter to keep your hands healthy and moisturized.

    Q: What do you have for stiffness? Hands that cannot close, and feet that cannot walk on their own much less to stand up. She is in a wheelchair, and the stiffness comes from the shoulder all the way down to her hands, and even her legs. The weather does not help either, it gets worst especially like today as the snow, and the low temperature hits low. What can you recommend to help me?

    A:

    It very well may be a condition of excess lactic acid, from diet built up over the years. Lactic acid causes stiffness in the body. Have her soak daily for about 1 hour in warm water, and 2-3 boxes of sea salt (or 78 ounces of sea salt). Can this person perform the Full body Detox? This person should drink vegetable juice daily. A raw foods diet would be best to get some immediate results.

    Q: I've been doing raw for about 28 days and I am on day 9 of the FULL BODY DETOX. I have noticed that my hands are orange occasionally. This also was present before doing the raw fast and detox as well. I looked on your website to see if you had any articles pertaining to this but didn't see any. I have read up a little on jaundice, but I experience this only on my hands (palms only, not in eyes or anywhere else). 5 or 6 years ago I was experiencing pain in my liver area and began changing my diet. Shortly after that I went to see an acupuncture therapist for a back injury (car accident) and he asked had I'd been experiencing pain anywhere else and I told him in the liver area. He treated me for both. I never have pain in my liver area again but was unsure what the orange hands are all about. I don't know if that is too much information, but I'd really appreciate any information you can give me on this issue.

    A:

    Orange or yellowish hands or feet denote TOXICITY. The body is toxic, especially the liver and needs to be cleansed periodically. Give the FULL BODY DETOX a try! Soak your hands in hot water (as hot as you can bear it) and 1 box of sea salt for about 30 minutes daily. I had this problem some years ago. I was going through times, had been through so much. I went and got a manicure one day and the Asian lady could read palms and told me I needed to relax. I had been doing everything by myself for a long time in life and needed to rest. She kept emphasizing rest. While this was true, my body also needed to detox. The anger in me at certain people and certain circumstances was stored in my liver (the liver stores anger). But in order to start a new life and live life anew, I had to work on my LIVE-R.

    Q: My daughter is currently taking Gingko Biloba + Gotu Kola (1 capsule), Magical Alchemical Elixir (2 drops twice daily), Cardio-Vascular Formula (3 capsules), Brain Tuner (3 capsules) and children detox from Dherbs. However, she still experience palpitation + mild seizure (raising of hands) every morning upon waking up. She experience mild fits once a day usually in her sleep/nap and get a severe seizure once every 10-12 days also during her sleep/nap. She was also diagnosed as Asperger Syndrome when she was seven and has improved considerably but not able to focus and easily get irritated. She likes to flipflop her hands a lot and always in wonderland during class. Not able to understand and totally lost in class though she has a very good memory. I also bring her to temple every week to pray and seek spiritual guidance and apply Reiki to her everyday. At present I just do not know what else to do to control her seizure and morning palpitation. Will Epson salt bath help in her epilepsy and anise powder water help in her palpitation. Your guidance and help is much appreciated.

    A:

    Something is going on while she's sleeping (visiting another realm). It sounds like it could be something from a past-life. Consider placing crystals near her bed and under pillow. Crystals such as amethyst, selenite, angelite, quartz, turquoise, black tourmaline, pink or purple lepidolite, lapis lazuli, sodalite, etc.

    Q: I was diagnosed with lupus 2 years ago and looking back, I see how I opened myself to contract the dis-ease. I have been symptom and medication free since October 2007, due to a major lifestyle change. STRESSFREE!!! The joints in my hands and feet are still paining me, especially my feet (no cute shoes for me). Although I prefer to be barefoot, (maybe I should move to a warmer climate), I need to get rid of these pains in my joints. I would like to know what could be the message that I'm obviously missing and is manifesting as joint pain?

    A:



    The joints deal with bending and the metaphysical message the joints convey is being too rigid, too stiff or stubborn. Learn to bend in many respects. Let go! Go with the flow. This applies to some area of your life (life issues).

    Q: What do you recommend for a very bad case of systemic yeast with many symptoms; cold hands and feet, constipation, mental confusion, bad food digestion, etc? And what about replacing the good bacteria? I have tried many things and nothing has worked. I think this Candida yeast came from being on birth control for a short period of time and then Anti-Biotics for a short time as well, probably stress too.

    A:

    Perform the FULL BODY DETOX for 3-weeks. After the FULL BODY DETOX, take 6 capsules daily of Candida Buster formula, and 3 capsules daily of Colon Conditioner. Try our natural PRO-BIOTIC/ACIDOPHILUS formula to replace the beneficial bacteria.

    Q: I am on Day 10 of the full body detox. I have had horrible stomach aches (like a punch in the gut), that have kept me up all night, migraines and pimple-like bumps apepar on my scalp (also itch). Now I have welts on my feet, hands and one on my right knee - that are red, swollen and itch. It makes it painful to walk. Is this normal on the detox or an allergic reaction to something? When do you start feeling better because I have felt like crap, with no energy the last 5 days. I have a business trip I must make next week during week 3 of the detox. Can I stop the detox for a week, and finish week 3 later, as I can't afford to feel like I do on my trip.

    A:

    1. Read the article HEALING CRISIS on our site under "Articles."

    2. We don't advise you stop the detox, but if you must, you must.

    You are just very toxic and your body really needs this cleanse as well as future cleansing. Your symptoms state you are toxic and need to focus more on your internal heath. You diet sounds very acid-forming! Changes are needed in your life, especially in the area of diet.

    Health is wealth!

    Q: I was diagnosed with lupus in 1992, and have tried a number of things to fix what I broke. I am on the 5th day of raw foods, and today my hands started itching, and I now have small painful boils. Is this a form of detox? I am currently on 5mg Prednisone, Plaque nil, Celcept, and Lisinopril. I have been on Prednisone since Jan 2007 after I almost died from a bad lupus flare. Can you give me some suggestions?

    A:

    Goodness, Raw foods and drugs is not a good mixture. You are having a reaction. See, the raw foods are good as they alkalize the body and the medication you're taking is acidic and very bad for you. Drugs don't heal. God made the herbs for medicine (Ezekiel 47:12), and for the healing if the nations (revelation 22:2), not drugs!

    Q: My sister and I both have Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, except my sister has a very severe form of the disease. She has a very irregular menstrual cycle, has severe water retention-- especially with swelling in the face, feet and hands. She constantly has a dull stomachache and cannot lose weight. Doctors seem to only prescribe antibiotics for the recurrent infections (stomach) she has and I am sure they're killing off the good bacteria in her body. We are now ready to turn to natural remedies and I was thinking a cleanse may be a good start. What might you recommend for some of her symptoms?especially something to cleanse the blood and promote lymphatic drainage?

    A:
