If it’s cold enough to wear a hat, it’s definitely cold enough to slip on a pair of gloves. Invest in a pair of cashmere or wool-lined leather gloves, which tend to be more effective at blocking wind and keeping hands warm. Building a snowman or shoveling your walkway? Opt for a water-resistant pair. You should don a pair of rubber gloves when washing dishes or cleaning year round, but it’s especially important in the winter, says Francesca Fusco, MD, board-certified dermatologist of Wexler Dermatology in New York City.
Apply SPF every day
Protect hands from the sun’s harmful rays with moisturizing sunscreen. Or opt for a hand lotion with SPF, like Supergoop! Forever Young Hand Cream Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 40 PA+++. (Don’t miss these subtle signs your hands are begging for some TLC.)
