Hands with peeling skin

Sponsored by DelSol

Grab a cup ‘o Joe and share what’s on your mind for an hour on this FRIDAY, JUNE 13.

How well have you been taking care of your skin on your hands? You probably pay more attention to the skin on your face, but ignore the most visible part of your body – Your Hands.

Did you know that the skin on the back of our hands is thinner than that under the eye? Sounds unbelievable, but that is why the signs of age and factor abuse show up on our hands much quicker than anywhere else.

Lesson learned and brought up to our attention today – What can we do to keep our skin of our precious hands look radiant and young? And with that radiant look comes the factor of Health – only healthy skin looks beautiful.

Our discussion points are awaiting you!

    • kaen hinkle says

      I am a nail biter and I need to take better care of my hands..

    • Jennifer Hiles says

      Good Morning and happy friday. I guess the only thing I do for my hands is moisturize. They could probably use some TLC!

    • thia Beniash says

      good morning ladies…no really, i just woke up! whoa slept in tooo late. i am not going to chat today just wanted to say hello and let Laura know i got my 5 rabbid toys yesterday. the starfish guy is sooo funny! love it. thank you!
      have a fantastic day!

    • Amanda Alvarado says

      Good Morning! I try to keep my hands moisturized because they dry out easily. My nails, forget it…I am lucky if they get cut and filed once a month by me!

    • wendi watson says

      I DO use a lot of hand cream to try to keep them hydrated i do a lot of dishes and things that dry them out easily so anything that will help protect i try

    • Good morning! I used to work in skincare products and now I have a HUGE stash of quality dead sea hand creams. I use them regularly and keep them in all sorts of handy places (diaper bag, desk drawer, bathroom, dresser, car, and handbag…)

    • Rebecca Swenor says

      Good morning all. I have always had the hands of a lil kid because I am short . My hands get so dry a lot so I use working hands cream on them.

    • Jessica Parent says

      Good Morning 😀 Just got back from Flag Day celebration at 2 of my boys Elementary school and volunteer appreciation day breakfast (I had me 3 danishes ,half a bagel with cream cheese, a few strawberries ,a cup of OJ for the baby….once it works its way thru me and a cup of Joe 😉 )Yum Still wishing I grabbed another raspberry Danish.Nothing special done to keep my hands looking young as they have looked old already the past 5 years-Id like to prevent liver spots if possible until Im 80 but they have always been “veiny”

    • Raye Wiedner says

      Good morning everyone! After years of working in health care and washing my hands constantly, I learned that I had to moisturize religiously to keep them from splitting and becoming painful. I love home manicures, and having my nails done, so I try to take care of them somewhat. I’ve always had prominent veins in my hands, but I do use sunscreen to try and avoid spots.

      • Jessica Parent says

        I hate my prominent veins-lol ….my moms hands used to be cracked and bloody-she slept with cotton socks over her hands to keep the moiterizers on over night which would help til the next shift)

    • Good morning

    • wendy c g says

      Good morning, I use vaseline on my hands and feet at night. I also get a manicure every couple months.

    • Virginia Rogers says

      Good Morning!! Yes do care about my hands, don’t really do much to keep young and beautiful, right now am battling daily with them getting red, itchy and swelling doctor says from other medications. I have had to switch to hypoallergenic hand soap as well as beby wash which has helped some along with zyrtec.

    Tips to Save Your Skin on Your Hands

    1 Moisturize
    Applying moisturizer once a day would not keeep your hands soft and supple. Hands tends to get dry with every wash. You gotta reapply just a teardrop of moisturizer over your skin on your hands. With that habit, your hands would maintain natural luster.

    Natural oils present in our hands often get drained, diluted, stripped of by all kinds of activities we do, washing included. Plus, all the external factors are brutal to our skin. It’s just we do not feel it, see it immediately. But on the cellular level, it’s a constant re-generation process is taking place to supply our skin with a new army of cells that would protect our skin.

    2. Sunscreen
    Use it so those dark spot would be kept at bay!
    Some sunscreens are boosted with moisturizers, especially those that are on the green and eco-friendly side. Again, you do not need a lot, just enough to feel it on your skin.

    3. Proper Nutrition
    You already are so informed that Good Nutrition would be a surprise for you to know that it boosts your skin health, skin of your hands included! Good plant-based diet, rich in protein, amino acids, Vitamins and minerals – it takes a variety of foods to make it all work and show!

    Calcium is necessary to keep your nails strong (think green leafy veggies!)
    If you expose your hands to water frequently, nails can become brittle. With the summer season at play, more time in the water, make sure you apply cremes that strengthen your nail structure.
    skin healthy tips for hands

    • This is our biggest battle, Keeping our hands out of water. The dishes, the laundry, the cleaning. I feel I just can’t win on having beautiful nails. And I cant wear gloves, My hands sweat so bad in them. Its miserable.

    • kaen hinkle says

      yes I guess I need to take better care of my hands they do and go threw a lot in a days time I do have the paraffin I need to use it more often

    • Jennifer Hiles says

      I guess I never thought to apply sunscreen to my hands. I suppose it probably gets on them from applying it to the rest of my body but I’m sure it get’s washed off readily. I’ve always wondered about my nails. The bend? I can actually bend them and they don’t break. It doesn’t seem right though. I don’t think nails are suppose to be that way! They have been as long as I can remember though.

    • Amanda Alvarado says

      I never would have thought to apply sunscreen to my hand! I mean it gets there when I am applying it to my arms for a day in the sun but otherwise, I never thought to apply it daily! Now I need to find a good hand cream that has sunscreen! Easier said than done since my skin (especially on my hands) is weird when it comes to absorbing creams and I always end up with really greasy hands no matter how little I apply!

    • wendi watson says

      it is a job to protect our hands because moms especially use them for everything cooking, cleaning, laundry, dishes, showers, y0ou name it so sometimes i think they get left behind and we dont realize how lucky we are to have function of them! i will try to moisturize more now after reading this

    • It’s funny – I can sometimes wear pjs all day and go a week with no makeup but my nails and hands are usually all done and soft. I do the dishes, wash laundry etc. but still take care of them. I don’t have a tendency for dry skin though which probably helps

    • Rebecca Swenor says

      I have always said I have working hands because I have calluses on the palms of my hands. Gloves can take of of that too I think.

    • Jessica Parent says

      My diet could definitely be better and I need to remember to apply moisturizer here and there-it is my nails that suffer the most…I ALWAYS apply sunscreen to all my exposed skin (I burn easily and am very light skinned)

    • Raye Wiedner says

      I do apply sunscreen when I’m out and about, I need to be more conscientious of doing so at home. I’m constantly washing my hands and cleaning up something, so sunscreen I apply in the morning is gone in no time. I have to keep my nails fairly short for caregiving, but I find if I keep them polished most of the time, I tend to take better care of them and my hands in general.

    • wendy c g says

      During summer I’m in the water a lot with the kids. I will have to moisturize often.

    • Virginia Rogers says

      working on the nutrition, I do have the aide daily put lotion on my hands feet and back after showers, I do not generally use sunscreen any more as never out in sun as most of my medications say to avoid plus we do not get a lot anyway. But did pass on information about sunscreens to my daughter for using safe ones on my grandson. 🙂

  4. CoffeeTime says

    As far as skin goes, we have to add some supplementation of high quality.

  5. I entered, Just wondering If vitamins have calories in them.

    • CoffeeTime says

      Vitamins Do Not have Calories!
      Once absorbed by our body, they’re used in multiple body processes, including metabolism of other nutrients and energy production.

    How to Deal with Peeling Skin
    – Do Use vinyl or rubber gloves when you do your work around the house!
    – Reapply sunscreen on your hands before you head outdoors
    – Never use skin solvents of any kinds lie acetone, kerosene, gasoline
    – Remove dryness with application of Linseed Oil. A few drops of oil applies and massaged into the skin. It works great for removing dryness between the fingers.

    • kaen hinkle says

      I wish my hands look that pretty love them nails and good advice

    • I don’t use rubber gloves, there so uncomfortable and my hands are showing it. Age spots are appearing.

    • Jennifer Hiles says

      I need to start wearing gloves when I clean. It’s one of those things I don’t think of until the cleaners come in contact with my hands! I’ve nevervused Linseed Oil before. I will have to give it a try.

    • Amanda Alvarado says

      I can’t stand using gloves! I am a touchy feely kind of person and I have to feel things. I don’t even like wearing gloves during the winter but will on very cold days.

    • wendi watson says

      the one ting i can not do is grow nails i have never ever been able to my hands will not ever be that pretty

    • Thank Gd I’ve never had this! I hate wearing gloves as well, but so far haven’t needed to. I have had calluses on my hands though that no amount of lotion helped

    • Rebecca Swenor says

      This is a problem I have always. The working hands help with this. I put it on at night and in the morning my hands are already heeling. This is with the cracking on the end of my fingers too.

    • Jessica Fisk says

      I wonder if this would work on feet. My daughters toes peel all the time. I keep putting Vaseline on them.

      • CoffeeTime says

        Vaseline is a temporary relief. And it is the Petroleum-based products, thus, an creator of free radicals in your daughter’s skin. At first, the effect is smooth skin. But the final effect is dryer skin.

    • Jessica Parent says

      wondering if coconut oil will work well on the hands too?? (I use it for my little guys cradle cap and it leaves my hands silky soft)

    • Jessica Parent says

      My moms hands cracked and peeled so bad growing up (as a nurse she washed them about 10 times or more an hour)I have always worn gloves while cleaning just out of gross factor alone (double bonus that it protects my hands )

    • wendy c g says

      I will look for the oil, my hands get really dry during summer.

    • Raye Wiedner says

      I got so used to using latex gloves when I worked, that I bought them for home as well. I get the kind with powder in them so my hands don’t sweat as badly. I use regular rubber gloves for dishes now, but I put a touch of powder in them so they’re easier to get on and off. I also use coconut oil on my hands.

    • Virginia Rogers says

      Great advice have to try with linseed oil usually use lotion with oatmeal as helps as my hands are sensitive. 🙂

  7. CoffeeTime says


    To Lighten Dark Spots
    1. Apply raw milk on your skin before taking bath. Milk acts very well to lighten your dark spots on hands and feet.
    2. Grind the dry orange peel and make smooth powder. Now add some milk and apply the paste on your hands and feet. This is one of the best home remedy for dark skin on hands and feet and give you fair complexion.
    3. Add sandalwood powder to cucumber, tomato and lemon juice. Make a paste and apply this paste on the skin. After 15 minutes remove it with fresh water.
    4. Rub Cucumber or Aloe Vera onto your skin to freshen up and lighten a bit your skin, too!
    5. Potato juice also reduces dark pigmentation of your hands and feet.

    Removing dead cells would only improve the rejuvenation process, allowing healthy cells to come to the surface and perform their protective function.

    1. Sprinkle salt on lemon and rub it on your hands. Lemon acts as a natural cleanser and helps to remove dead cells.
    2. Regular oats would exfoliate your skin on hands as well, bringing a softening effect.
    skin care for hands

    • Jennifer Hiles says

      These sound like some great home recipes. I want to try the lemon and salt on my hands. It sounds like it would work great. I wonder if it would work for my neck? From one of your other conversations, I learned that I need to exfoliate there too. I never knew that about milk! I’ll try that one too!

    • Amanda Alvarado says

      Do these work on dark spots all over the body or just hands and feet? Raw milk? Like unpasteurized?

      • CoffeeTime says

        It works all over the body. The reaction could be different due to the different thickness of our skin. The results would be more noticeable on the hands than on your leg, as an example.

    • wendi watson says

      love the home remedies my great grandma had so many and they always worked better than what the Dr ordered

    • I think the best for me is dishing washing liquid, making sure the products I choose has lemon and aloe. That way Im helping myself and getting my work done.

    • wow, did not know these basic household items help so much!! I had this awesome hard core scrub at work that I loved but cannot afford now. I should have bought it then with my discount…

    • Rebecca Swenor says

      I have heard of the milk baths before. I don’t think I could use the salt and lemon on my hands with the lil cuts. I do have this stuff from ARBONE that has oil and sea salt that I use in the tub and I soak my heels in it also.

    • Jessica Parent says

      Interesting wouldn’t think of potato juice to lighten dark spots….Im def gonna try a few of these….do any of them prevent dark spots or just treat them? I don’t have any yet (knock on wood) but am not looking forward to them

    • wendy c g says

      I love aloe vera, milk bathes I have heard before. Potato juice is a new one to me.

    • Raye Wiedner says

      I love DIY beauty products. Anything we put on our skin can enter our bloodstream, so I feel better with natural ingredients.

    • Virginia Rogers says

      Don’t really have dark spots on hands but great ideas on exfoliating!! Thank you 🙂

  8. CoffeeTime says


    Hand Mask with Avocado
    1/2 Avocado
    1 Tbsp olive oil
    1/8 cup of sugar
    1-2 drops patchouli essential oil (or the one you like)

    Mash avocado very well, blend in oil and essential oil, then stir in sugar.
    After your hand mask is ready –> apply it!

    Rub your hands together well, scrub every inch of them! Leave this avocado mask for about a minute on, then rinse under Warm water. Follow with moisturizer of your choice.

    Repeat this routine 1-2 times a day for 3 days!
    skin care for hands

    • I wish I had time to do this , I need to pamper myself more.

    • Amanda Alvarado says

      Does it have to use the patchouli essential oil? I’m not too big on the smell of it! I usually have all of these ingredients (other the EO) on hand!

    • Is the patchouli oil needed for this? Or can I do it without? This also sounds like a great way to use avocados that are slightly too ripe…

      • Rebecca Swenor says

        I think when I made my concoction for my face mine were very ripe. I was amazed at the texture and how soft it was.

    • Jennifer Hiles says

      I think I’d be tempted to eat this one 🙂 minus the patchouli oil. This does sound like an excellent recipe. I can’t wait to try it. I still need to go buy my orange for my purse so I’ll pick up some Avocado while I’m there!

      • Karen Hinkle says

        I have a paraffin. That I use to use it was amazing I guess I should start to use it again

        • CoffeeTime says

          Paraffin is a by-product from Petroleum! Thus, is a huge Oxidizer!
          Yes, your skin would feel so awesomely soft after each paraffin mask, but do know that free radicals would be shooting left and right after such a mask as well. We want natural things that soften, scrub away dead cells and provide all nutrients to the skin!
          Paraffin –> Bad Idea!

    • Rebecca Swenor says

      I do love avocado for the skin now from my recipe for facial. It is so good because it is oily but soaks into the skin.

    • Jessica Fisk says

      I have got to try this. My hands stay so dry from all the cleaning I do.

    • Jessica Parent says

      My hands have never had a mask-Next time I treat myself to avocado Ill be sure to try the mask (My store has a 4 pk for $5 but I usually over pay buying one at a time cuz Im the only avocado lover in the house) The mask will give me something to do with the extra 2 if I buy them in bulk

    • wendy c g says

      Love avocado, they are great for many things. Thanks for the information

    • Raye Wiedner says

      I love this recipe, and especially patchouli oil with it (that’s my favorite!). I have avacado in the fridge, I may give this one a try this afternoon when I get a chance to sit down for a break after errands.

    • Virginia Rogers says

      Sounds very neat to try, never think of doing these for myself 🙂
