How to Keep Your Hands Warm

Most people instinctively believe that cold hands are something to be endured during winter activities. Not only do they have to tolerate freezing fingers during outdoor activities, but there’s also a risk of frostbite. If you think this way, you are completely mistaken. We once met a woman named Nicole who, even in -40°C weather, kept her hands warm. So, what allowed her to maintain warm hands in such extreme cold?

Here are eight rules for keeping your hands warm:

Stay Warm, Don’t Overheat

This may sound easy, but it’s quite difficult in practice. Warming up icy fingers requires significant effort and thought. The key is to maintain warmth continuously, rather than desperately trying to heat up. To achieve this, choose suitable and high-quality insulated gloves or mittens, and even heated gloves if necessary.

Take Care of Your Core

When one part of your body feels cold, it’s crucial to keep other parts, especially your core, well-protected. A warm-core allows your body to distribute heat to other areas.

Stay Dry

Wet hands accelerate the evaporation of moisture, which removes much of the heat and results in cold hands. Therefore, keeping your hands dry is essential. High-quality waterproof gloves are indispensable, as they prevent external moisture from getting in while maintaining warmth.

Block the Wind

A cold wind can make you shiver and freeze your fingers. Blocking the wind is one of the fundamental methods of staying warm. Multi-layered windproof gloves or mittens naturally provide wind resistance, and gloves with extended cuffs that cover the sleeves can prevent wind from entering.

Avoid Tight Clothing or Gloves

Tight gloves or clothing can restrict blood circulation, leading to cold and uncomfortable hands. Choosing properly fitting clothing ensures comfort and is the first premise of warmth.

Keep Moving

Suitable physical activity can improve blood circulation, warming up the body. In cold weather, avoid keeping your hands still for long periods. If your hands are extremely cold, simple movements can help warm them up.

Increase Heat

Hand warmers are an excellent way to add warmth to your fingers, especially for those prone to cold hands. You can also choose heated gloves, such as those with built-in heating elements or USB-powered gloves.

Don’t Tough It Out

If you feel uncomfortable, don’t force yourself to endure it. If your hands are already frozen or numb, stop what you’re doing and take some time to warm them up. Placing cold fingers under your armpits or against a friend’s warm belly, though inconvenient, is an effective way to regain warmth quickly.
