Warm Up Cold Hands And Feet

Warm Up Cold Hands and Feet

If your hands and feet always seem to be cold, there are few things causing this. There are also some simple measures you can try to keep cold hands and feet warm.

 

 

 

Wear warm clothes

This one is probably very obvious, but sometimes only your hands and feet are cold while you’re not cold at all. Warm cloths keep your whole body warm and helps maintain circulation to your hands and feet. Layer clothing for indoor as well as outdoor wear. In addition, try wearing a long-sleeve silk camisole or shirt under a blouse or sweater topped by a wool jacket for indoor dress. Use warmth-conserving fabrics such as silk, wool or down, or synthetic fabrics such as polypropylene.

Exercise

During activity, small, surface blood vessels dilate so that more warm blood flows to your hands and feet. The effect can last several hours.

Avoid all forms of nicotine

Nicotine is a vasoconstrictor – a substance that narrows blood vessels and reduces blood flow to small surface vessels.

Avoid certain medications

Certain migraine medications with ergot derivatives and beta blockers such as propranolol act as vasoconstrictors and may cause cold hands and feet. If you suspect that a medication might be causing your symptoms, talk with your doctor, but don’t make changes to your medication regime without your doctor’s advice.

Reduce stress

Chronic stress and anxiety cause your nervous system to pump out adrenaline. This hormone also acts as a vasoconstrictor.
