Here is how you can keep your hands moisturized, healthy, soft and supple.

According to the guidelines released by WHO, people should wash their hands every 20 minutes. This is to reduce the possibility of getting infected by the coronavirus. While people have started to improve their hygiene, frequent hand washing can leave your skin feeling dry and chapped. Not only that, using hand sanitizer has the same effect and may also leave your hands feeling a little itchy.

Coconut oil is known to be very moisturizing and is a quick fix for dry hands. Take a few drops of coconut oil in your palm and rub it nicely so that it gets absorbed in your skin. If you don’t wish to keep it, you can also do it 15 mins before your bath time and rinse it off then.
