Skin peeling on fingers are very disturbing, because the skin on the fingertips is one of the most sensitive and delicate parts of the human body, as it is strongly supplied with blood and nerves. This is also where most of the tactile receptors that humans need to feel are located.
Even small tears and wounds in this area are perceived as very disturbing and restricting in everyday life, as the hands are needed for almost every activity.
Why Skin Peeling On Fingers
There are many different reasons and causes for these cracks and wounds on the fingertips, which do not necessarily apply to every person in the same way, as there are people who have more sensitive skin than others. The familial predisposition to quickly drying skin is the main risk factor for cracked fingertips.
In addition to this, there are other external influences which can be influenced by the job or everyday life, for example. Frequent contact with water, alkaline liquids or even detergents without protection by gloves causes the fingertips to dry out particularly quickly.
Working with acidic substances (such as lemons) also attacks the skin on the fingertips and promotes the formation of cracks.
A lot of contact with wood or earth can also stress the skin.
Another factor influencing the skin is the cold: cold air causes the skin to dry out more quickly and thus promotes the formation of cracked fingertips. Thus, problems with cracked fingertips occur more frequently in winter.
When skin hurts to touch
Some fingers are affected more than others. The thumb, middle finger and index finger, which are used most often and in almost all gripping procedures, have a higher risk of developing dry, cracked skin than the little finger or ring finger.
We mostly believe that fat is unhealthy for our body and try to reduce its intake as much as possible; however it needs to be understood that the body requires adequate supply of good fats that provide energy, protect the internal organs, lower the cholesterol levels, produce healthy hormones, and strengthen the immune system. The good fats are also useful in maintaining healthy skin, promoting hair growth and overall body health.
Coconut oil is an ancient source of good fat?
In the past coconut palm tree was known as ‘Kalpa Vriksha’ which means “tree that provides all the requirements of life”. Our ancestors have been using the innumerable benefits of coconut oil for several generations. Coconut oil is incredibly rich in saturated fatty acids that aids in maintaining healthy skin, fights infection, prevents heart disease, and strengthen the immunity besides actively promoting weight loss.
Coconut oil is a superfood for skin?
Coconut oil is also considered as a superfood for its numerous health benefits. It contains no trans-fats, carbohydrates, salt or sugar so it is the healthiest form of oil that can be used for roasting, frying or stir frying. It is even healthier than organic extra virgin olive oil as it is capable of withstanding extremely high temperatures without losing nutritional value.
As some saturated fats have the tendency to raise cholesterol levels, it is recommended that you use extra virgin coconut oil for cooking as it contains medium chain fatty acids that have no adverse effect on cholesterol levels.
Coconut oil promotes healthy skin?
Besides being good for your body, coconut oil also promotes healthy skin as it is hypoallergenic. It contains exceptional nourishing characteristics for hair, lips, and skin. The medium chain fatty acids present in coconut oil are absorbed into the skin easily and this helps restore the natural fat at the cellular level in order to prevent age spots, skin sagging and wrinkles.
Coconut oil also contains lauric acid that is developed as a treatment for various skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, and acne. It is considered effective in improving nutrition absorption and killing any parasitic infections.
