A hand mask can use when your hands may be dry during this pandemic because of the coronavirus. Hot water and chlorinated water cause dry skin. You should limit showering and bathing to avoid getting sick.
Hands get wet when they touch things. But some people use soap or shampoo to wash away oil. This makes them feel clean but dries out their hands. Natural alternatives include virgin olive oil, coconut oil, and aloe vera gel.
The best time to use this DIY hand mask
Hand masks are very rich and emollient products that should be used right before bed as an overnight hand treatment. Because of their richness, these masks are better applied at night when the skin is more relaxed. You can also apply them any time of day if you’re feeling too lazy to get out of bed!
Occlusive products work by sealing the skin barrier and helping it to regenerate. Reparative products seal and protect the skin barrier.
