My 6 Hand Care Products for Winter

With the onset of winters, I suddenly realized that I was neglecting a very delicate part of mine that was very dear to me and of which I took extreme care earlier, and no it’s not my brain or anything else, its my hands.


I loved taking care of my hands and followed strict routine to keep it soft and supple because I used to get more compliments for my hands and shoulders than my face. πŸ™ For the last one year, I only dabbed body lotion on my hands because that was the only thing I could squeeze time out for. For the last two weeks, I have been following a care routine for my hands so that they do not become dry and stretchy and it is already showing results. I am loving the way my hands feel now.

Here’s my hand care routine:

1. Moong Dal scrub

I love to scrub my hands with whole green moong dal. The sun dried moong dal seeds have to be powdered into whatever consistency you want. These c1an be stored in a container to be used later. This powdered moong dal can be used for rough exfoliation and it makes the skin super smooth.

Hands need heavy moisturization and it does not matter if you have oily skin or dry skin or normal skin because skin on the hands won’t break out.

2. Vaseline Body Lotion:

I have been using Vaseline body lotion since ages. I have been trying the other lotions in between, but I always spring back to this one because I simply find Vaseline Body Lotion indispensable whether its summer, rainy, or winter season. I use it at all times for my hands and all over to get smooth skin.

Since body lotions are not enough, I use the Dove Intensive Nourishing Care cream. It is a thick cream with a very pleasant smell that nourishes as well as moisturizes.

3. Dove Intensive Cream for Complete Daily Skin Care:

The intensive cream from Dove offers rich care and a pleasant feel on the skin during and after application. It combines nourishing ingredients and a generous dose of active moisturizer. I use it right after bath and apply generously on hands and even on legs. It not only moisturizers but also nourishes.

4. Moyzen Moisturizing Cream

The protective layer of Moyzen Cream nourishes dry skin and helps retain moisture. Fast absorbing formula, non-greasy, relieves itching, can be used on hands, feet, and all over body, suitable for use by adults and children, use preferably after bathing, perfectly balanced at natural pH of skin, does not contain synthetic colours and fragrance, an emollient for dry skin.

Although Moyzen claims to be grease free, it is not, it has liquid paraffin in cream base and preservative and it is a very thick moisturizer, which does not quickly absorb into the skin, but it heavily moisturizers and so I use it on my hands and legs.

5. Roghan Badam Shirin

I use Roghan Badam Shirin at night a little before hitting the bed so that it gets completely absorbed into the skin and does not get wasted. Roghan Badam Shirin is 100% pure sweet almond oil and it nourishes, moisturizes, and makes the skin soft and supple. I do not use Roghan Badam during the day because it’s an oil and gives an oily sheen to the skin. Note to Rads: Please note that it works for constipation as good as β€œcastor oil.” πŸ™‚

6. Vitamin E capsules:

These capsules have vitamin E with Aloe Vera and I apply these capsules overnight over my hands to let them work through the night. These capsules work wonderfully and nourish skin and give it a healthy glow.

I find this care routine for hands very rewarding with my dry hands turning super soft and smooth within two weeks. Do try this routine and let me know how it works for you.

How do you take care of your hands?

  5. Jomol, is there any particular name for these capsules? πŸ™‚

    i use a simple hand cream and put a few drops of oil in my liquid soap this way the soap doesnt dry out my hands completely. :))

    1. Its called Vitamin E capsules.You can get it in any pharmacy or departmental store.My mother used to get them from the pharmacies and used them in lotions,and its really good for those who have dry skin :snicker:

        1. Thanks Sarah for helping Rati out…..oh the pour soul…….who mixes oil in liquid hand soap :hunterwali: :hunterwali: :hunterwali: :hunterwali:

    2. HOw clever Poutmati……oil in liquid soap…. :violinbash: :violinbash: …..actually, there is no name for these capsules… just say vitamin E capsules at any beauty shop and they will hand it out to you poutmati ji :waytogo:

  6. as usual , its ur post so it has to be good :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin:
    roghan badam shirin is my fav for winters , its like magic for any winter skin problem :jiggy2: :jiggy2: :jiggy2:
    never heard of moyzen before..its available in india ?? pardon my ignorance .. :idk: :idk: :idk:

    1. Hey Naina……….. :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: thankieeeeeeeeeeess……….Moyzen is available in India and I think you can get it pharmacy or Health and Glow outlets….its like an ointment only with zero fragrance………

  7. i have seen these capsules in small small shops, they sell 60-70 for some 150 bucks dunno y but i find evion more trustworhty :idk: :idk:

      1. evion is apna regular VIT E capsules , 400 IU .. i use them to apply on hair/face .. a strip of 10 capsules cost like some 15 Rs or something , available at any chemist .. just for information sake – evion has has a variant called ‘ Evion Forte’. it has omega 3 and wheat germ , i have one capsule daily . Dont buy forte for all these purposes , buy the normal wala .. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

          1. 400 IU means…..dosage ratiji….400 International Units….for vitamin supplements, mg or grams is not used….instead IU is used…. :spank: :spank: :spank: :spank:

  8. The Vit e & aloe capsules is a good idea. I’ve used only vit e capsules before & I found them too sticky. Should try these. Are they from a particular brand? Really good tips.

    1. I have used evion too, & find it too tough to take it off…have to srub very hard :sweat: :sweat: :sweat: :sweat: :sweat: but vit-E is very beneficial!…What is the name of these caps? where to find them? ?:)

      1. Hi Nirahika, I don’t remember the name of the vit e capsules, but I had bought them in a pharmacy. They should be available in any pharmacy. But I’ve tried 2 different varieties are both were VERY sticky. Also, these were only Vit E, NOT vit e & aloe. I think the combination of vit e & aloe will be much better.

              1. Glad I’m not the only one πŸ˜€

                Might be too late to say this, but I find the smileys a bit overwhelming. I can’t understand which smiley is for what emotion. In the earlier template, when you moused over a smiley, the emotion would be mentioned there. Is it possible to bring that feature back? I guess I’m iconically challenged (ya I just made that up). Also, in the earlier template, the smileys were arranged in order – from the simple ones to the more complex ones. Now it’s all mixed up & I’m finding it hard to locate the simpler ones (I’m easily confused).

                Sorry if this is too late, but I just realised it.

        1. Thanks poohkie…I would also want to try the vit-e with aloe caps, hopefully they are less sticky!…Nice version of my name NIRAHIKA! :lol2: :lol2: :lol2:

  9. nice 1 jomol..i do nothing for my hands πŸ™
    but they are already soft soft πŸ™‚
    i use evian 1s for d yes as every1 sd very sticky.. i never saw des 1s..
    wud check des out..n also m gettng d rogan badam shirin..thanks.. :-* :-*

  10. make a hand scrub by mixing raw sugar(normal sugar will do 2) and olive oil…use this scrub every night and rinse off with warm water..
    use a moisturising cream specially for hands.i like mixa creme mains(french) and mavala hand cream(swiss).they are both really nice…wear gloves and sleep…you’ll have soft hands just like a lil baby O:)

  11. Masks for the hands can be a very moisturizing treatment, bringing extreme softness to even the roughest of hands. Prepare masks by mixing together the required ingredients and applying them to the hands. Wrap hands in plastic (a grocery sack or some plastic wrap will do), then place a warm, damp towel around them. Let the mask soak in like this for five minutes, then take off the towel and plastic and rinse. Finally, pat dry with a clean dry towel.

    Mashed Potato Mask
    For the best moisturizing mask you can try a mashed potato mask (this is good for the whole body, too, including the face). Make two cups worth of instant mashed potatoes, using two tablespoons of olive oil in place of the butter/margarine. Let the mixture cool to room temperature and then spread it on your hands. This mask can actually stay on the skin until it is starting to dry before it needs to be rinsed off.

    Avocado Mask
    For an exfoliating hand mask you can mix one mashed up avocado with one or two tablespoons of corn meal. The good oils in avocado will help soften the hands while the corn meal’s gritty texture will aid in sloughing off dead skin cells. This mask should be applied in a circular motion, to remove the dead skin, then left on for the five minutes of moisturizing.

    Milk and Honey Mask
    If you need some extra strength hand softening, look no further than the milk and honey hand mask. This recipe calls for two tablespoons of honey combined with a half cup of plain yogurt. If you would like to add some vitamins into the mix, which can be very revitalizing for overworked hands, add in half of a ripe peach, mashed up.

    1. Oh my!! thank you, Shaniia. I have to try milk and honey mask . Have stuff in my kitchen. πŸ™‚ And how long to keep the pack on hands?

      I think I’ll post your tips as a part of daily beauty tips today . Just for archiving sake. :))

  30. @ Prrincess : you can get Vitamin E capsules in any medical store.
    Commonly they are manufactured by MERCK Limited by the name of Evion.
    There are types of Evion capsules. For skin you may go for Evion- 200 mg (Yellow colored) or Evion – 400 mg ( Green colored). The other types contain omega fatty acids, which on application gives a pungent smell ( I suffered that pain :(( ).
    Plain Evion is odorless and very effective for dry skin, chapped lips and cracked heels .

  31. for beautiful hands, scrub them nicely with coffee granules . after washing apply fresh milk creme mixed with a little honey and glycerine. leave it on for for the night.your hands will be super smooth. do thid thrice a week thru the winter.. cheers

  32. Hi all,iam a newcomer to the site and must tell.this blog gives lot of info regarding skin care,although i do my routine to read all. thnk u guys
