Here on the east coast, we've been battling bitterly cold weather to kick off the new year. Our hands, while kept semi-warm through gloves, mittens, and pockets, are still suffering from dry and cracked painful skin. In fact, winter gloves, while great for keeping us warm, are typically made from moisture-zapping cotton and polyester, known for removing the skin's natural oils as well as any protective products used on the hands. Here, we've compiled five steps and products to combat dry winter skin and show your hands a little TLC.
