How to Keep Your Hands Warm: Our Top Solutions
16 January 2023
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.
Poor Circulation in Fingers
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:
Silver Gloves for Raynaud's
Raynaud's Disease Silver Gloves
Wearing gloves might be a bit of an obvious one, but silver isn't. Silver prevents warm air from leaving your hands, making it a great insulator, which reflects heat back into the body for maximum warmth. Our Raynaud's Silver Gloves are top sellers, with customers saying they really are the best solution during winter!
✔ Heat-retaining Silver is ideal for Raynaud's
Customer Review: "My husband works outside for his job. These gloves prevent his fingers from going white from the cold. These gloves have been a saviour for him. Highly recommend." KL★★★★★
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, olive oil, fruits, vegetables and more are all fantastic for improving your blood flow during winter, with a Mediterranean diet proving most useful. Personally, we would recommend:
Buy 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.
Therm-IC PowerGlove Ladies Heated Gloves
Sticking with hand warmers, you can always purchase the Therm-IC PowerGlove Ladies Heated Gloves to help keep hands toasty warm. These are fantastic if you have relatively severe Raynaud's, or if you're heading anywhere super cold or going skiing. We love that the batteries guarantee even warmth distribution alongside naturally insulated fabric, providing comfort for many hours.
✔ Provides up to ten hours of electric warmth
Supplier Guarantee: "Great for outdoor work, the Therm-IC gloves are simple to use and highly effective. You can decide how many hours of heat you want according to the three setting levels, making these gloves super customisable to you and your needs. Since they're also super insulated, they retain heat too, giving a maximum of about one day's worth of heating."
The Eggserciser Hand Exerciser
As with all types of exercises, hand exercises can also prevent your hands from getting cold by improving circulation. Products such as the Eggserciser Hand Exerciser work to improve blood circulation in your hands through a variety of different exercises. This can be pinched, flexed, pronated and supinated, helping to activate all hand muscles for increased warmth.
✔ Warms hands and improves grip strength
Customer Review: "I do have Raynauds... I chose the medium density which is enough to challenge me. The exercises are great, really simple and effective." Sophie ★★★★★
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.
