#1 Rich hand cream
All you will need is a rich hand cream and a pair of latex gloves. Slather your dry hands with a generous amount of hand cream and spend a few minutes massaging them gently. Then, apply another layer of the heavy-duty cream before popping on a pair of latex gloves for another 30 minutes.
#2 Aloe vera
Aloe vera, known for its antibiotic and anti-inflammatory properties, is the best natural remedy to treat dry, rough and chapped hands. It is best to moisturize your dry hands with aloe vera gel right after showering to lock in moisture. Simply squeeze some aloe vera gel and rub it in all over your dry hands.
This DIY oatmeal hand soak works wonder for itchy, irritated skin. Start with filling a large mixing bowl large enough to fully submerge both hands with lukewarm water. Add 1-2 cups of powdered oatmeal and milk to it. Soak your hands completely in the water for 15 minutes. Then rinse, pat dry and apply lotion.
#4 Coconut oil
