Cold hands and feet are often disturbing permanent companions during the winter. Affected people can sing a song of it. But you can do something against ice cold limbs. Read here the 10 best tips against Ice Feet and Frostfinger.
Why Hands And Feet Freeze So Fast
A few facts in advance we can not resist. Surely you know that in the body we usually have a core temperature between 35.8 and 37.2 degrees Celsius. Maintaining this target temperature is the major goal for the internal organs to function optimally. In cold weather, which is typical for winter in our latitudes, the body reacts by securing the core temperature and allowing the skin and limbs to flow less with warm blood. The result: We get cold feet and hands – and freeze.
What Helps Against Cold Hands And Feet?
Warmth, warmth and warmth again! The heat can come from outside as well as from the inside. We have put together ten effective tips to help you get warm feet and hands quickly.
Tip 1: Onellook Warms Thanks To Air Cushions
