How to Get Soft and Smooth Hands & Feet in Winter?
Winter is all about relaxing and looking good in front of the bonfire. You’re probably all picturing last year’s bonfire with your friends and family! Winter is a combination of feelings.

Each of us has our reasons for loving or hating this season. We all have our reasons to love or hate this season. To counter this, we do all sorts of things to keep our hair and skin healthy and to make them resistant to harsh cold air. But is that it? What else are we missing? What is the effect of winter on our soft feet and hands? You’re probably remembering the rough feet and cracked heels you had in your youth!
Our hands and toes get dried out during the winter for many reasons, and it’s not just due to the cold. One of the main reasons our hands and feet dry out is the shampoo we use. The soap we use may be nonmoisturizing, so each wash removes moisture from our feet and hands. In the winter, excessive hot baths can cause dry feet and hands. Hands can also become rough for people who wash their hands frequently. People who use chemicals daily also experience rough, dry hands. Chemicals rob the hands of their moisture and softness, so they become rude. After the chemical work, we wash our hands with soap. This can also cause rough, dry hands.
Sometimes our hands or feet become so dry that they start bleeding. This situation should be addressed immediately, as it could cause infection and worsen your condition. Here are some easy ways to treat dry feet and hands.
