As you feel the dryness coming on, keep your hands and feet soft and smooth by gently exfoliating them. Exfoliating gloves are great for doing a nice gentle exfoliation, or you could try an exfoliating wash. Be sure to focus on tough spots, like the heels of your feet.

Keep hands and feet nice and soft by moisturizing regularly. With flu season happening, you’ll probably be washing your hands more often, so lather up after every wash and moisturize your feet after every bath or shower. If you need a deep moisturizing reset, try lathering up with your favorite hand and foot cream before bed, and popping on some socks and lightweight gloves.

Keep them covered
Since we know dry air is the culprit for dry hands and feet, try to keep them covered when out in cold areas. You probably won’t be outdoors barefoot in the winter so no need to worry there, but just make sure you have gloves to keep your hands protected.
