Hands hold many secrets about the body’s health. Even though they’re right in front of you, you may not be accustomed to paying close attention to your hands and giving them the TLC they deserve. Here are three things your hands could be saying about you:

cold (colorful) fingers

Cold (Colorful) Fingers

If your fingers tend to lose their color or turn blue, purple, or red whenever you’re cold or stressed, you might have Raynaud’s. 

Raynaud’s is common in young women and is characterised by the short-term interruption of blood flow to your extremities. Raynaud’s phenomenon is typically not dangerous, just frustrating and at times uncomfortable.

fragile nails

Fragile Nails

Fragile nails can be an indication of everything from aging, to destructive manicures, and poor nutrition. Avoiding biting your nails, increasing the amount of iron and B vitamin in your diet, applying thick hand cream, and taking a break from polish are all tips for fragile nails that can help them regain their strength.

dry, cracked skin

Dry, Cracked Skin

Hand health and hand hygiene go, well, hand in hand. 

Dry, cracked skin is more susceptible to germs, meaning traditional gel hand sanitizer formulas might do your hands more harm than good. Switch to a super sani like OLIKA hydrating hand sanitizer formulated with aloe to eliminate germs without creating a larger problem at hand. 

Bonus: These cute hand sanitizers hold 15x more uses than traditional gels so you’re getting more bang for your buck.
