How to Keep Your Hands Warm: Our Top Solutions

Thursday, 12 December 2019

Keeping your hands warm during winter can be bad enough if you don't suffer from Raynaud's, but if you do, the problem of cold hands can become an awful lot worse. Just a minor change in temperature can be enough for your hands to turn white, causing blistering pain and leaving your fingers next to useless. This can happen multiple times per day and take up to fifteen minutes for your fingers to turn back to normal.

How to Keep Your Hands Warm During Winter
Keeping your hands warm is key to any Raynaud's sufferers day

The question on every Raynaud's sufferers lips is how exactly do I keep my hands warm during winter. The solution isn't too difficult, and there are plenty of things that you can do to make sure you hands are kept warm. Even if they do get cold, there's plenty of last-ditch measures that you can take to ward off the attack.

Our Top Tips to Keep Hands Warm at Winter

We understand the pain of Raynaud's, but we also understand that help is at hand. Below are our top tips for preventing attacks, and keeping your hands nice and warm during the winter months.

Wear Silver Gloves

Wearing gloves might be a bit of an obvious one, but silver isn't. Silver has the effect of preventing warm air from leaving your hands, therefore reflecting it back into your body and keeping you nice and warm. Our Raynaud's Silver Gloves are top sellers, with customer's saying that they really are a solution during winter!

Eat Healthily

Eating healthily is fantastic for your circulation because it boosts your heart health, and better flowing blood ultimately means that you are warmer. Fatty fish, nuts, oilive oil, fruits, vegetables and more are all fantastic for improving your blood flow during winter, with a Mediterranean diet proving most useful. Personally, I would recommend:

  • Salmon
  • Dark chocolate
  • Turmeric
  • Beetroot
  • Cayenne pepper
  • Radish
  • Chilli peppers
  • Kale
  • Coffee
  • Sprouts
  • Garlic

Wear Hand Warmers

Another option is to use hand warmers. Hand warmers are a fantastic option for activating as soon as you begin to feel the pinch. Below are two of our top selling hand warmers, each fantastic products in their own right but each using a different method to warm your hands.

Hand Exercises

As with all types of exercises, hand exercises can also prevent your hands from getting cold by improving circulation. Products such as the Eggsercizer Hand Exerciser and the Pro Power Grip Hand Grip Strengthener work to improve blood circulation in your hands through a variety of different exercises. The first can be pinched, flexed, pronated and supinated, while the latter can improve grip and muscles in your hand.

See a Doctor

If your hands are getting too much during winter, then we would recommend that you see a doctor. It probably isn't, but it could be a sign of an underlying health condition. If not, then your doctor can give you more advice on how to beat the cold weather.
