When people hear the phrase “skin care,” they tend to think of their facial skin first and foremost. And while this an important aspect of comprehensive skin care, especially in the age of face masks, that’s not the only area where a little extra TLC can make a major difference. For men in Rochester, MN, caring for the skin on your hands can make a major impact on your day-to-day quality of life, and at MenSalon, we can help you take the steps necessary to make hand care a reparative part of your daily routines.
Use of Hands
Almost all of us work with our hands in one way or another, whether it’s with hands-on physical labor or with a computer keyboard for hours on end. Even outside of your job, your hands may drive you to work, control your bike, hold a wrench, or simply maneuver a fork and spoon at dinner. But regardless of the extent of your hands’ usage, it’s impossible to ignore when your hands aren’t feeling their best. And a lack of skin care, in particular, is a surefire way to leave your hands rough, itchy, and generally uncomfortable.
Hand care is more about comfort than aesthetics. Dry, cracked, or under-hydrated skin can lead to hangnails, cuts, rashes, and even infections, while well-hydrated skin on your hands is pliable and flexible under pressure, which reduces injuries and infections. If you ignore your hands for too long, you can end up with rough patches of skin that are uncomfortable to touch and unwieldy to use. This is doubly true if you work outdoors in the sun and wind.
Relax Your Hands
Hand care with MenSalon is an aspect of spa services that gives your hands a chance to relax and regain some lost moisture. With lotion, oil, or warm water, we can help your hands relax, and begin the process of treating and repairing their damaged skin. And if you decide to commit to regular hand care, we can suggest daily or topical use of lotions and products that will help retain moisture for longer periods of time.
