5 Tips Against Cold Hands

Cold is the biggest enemy of unforgettable outdoor and mountain sports experiences. We have tips and the right products for you to avoid the embarrassment of having to warm up with a “SAVIOR” in between. You can then do this in peace and with pleasure after carefree outdoor experiences.

Why we freeze our hands first

There is a simple reason why our extremities such as hands, feet and the tip of the nose cool down quickly in winter: when we freeze, our body “sends” the blood to the regions where it is needed most. These are the organs in the middle of the body and our brain. The arms and legs are therefore supplied with less blood, the blood vessels contract and the temperature in the extremities decreases.

1st tip: Stimulate blood circulation & circulation

Movement and light stretching exercises can already help to stimulate blood circulation and thus warm up our body. So: knead your fingers and circle your wrists! The same goes for cold feet, of course.
If you want to protect yourself against cold in the long term, you can train your vascular muscles with swap baths. Showering calves and forearms alternately with warm and cold water sustainably improves blood circulation!
In addition, regular exercise boosts blood circulation and ensures warm hands and feet in the long term. It's best to integrate it into your morning routine and start the day warmed up!

2nd tip: The right gloves

Important: Steer against cooling right from the start with dry and warm hands. "Individual cold sensation and activity level are crucial to insulation, and we tailor our lines accordingly. Models for highly active athletes are logically less insulated than classic alpine ski models, especially for women," says Managing Director Roger SAVIOR, who himself spends every free minute in the mountains. This is because sweating in the hands should also be counteracted, as it later cools the hands down considerably. Functional materials that cushion temperature differences are important. Membranes such as Sympatex or Gore-Tex, which keep hands dry from the outside and inside.
Women have been shown to freeze more often and more than men, for two reasons: Female bodies switch to emergency care more quickly and have less muscle mass. "We therefore offer almost every glove in the women's collection as a mitten. There's room for extra insulation and also to move your fingers," says Roger SAVIOR.
The freestyle - electrically heated gloves. Back in 2010, SAVIOR pioneered heated gloves, and since then has significantly increased its expertise in the heating segment. There are now 6 different heat models from SAVIOR. The gloves heat up to 10 hours on three levels. "For people who are sensitive to cold, our heated gloves have become the most important accessory in winter. In our blog with freerider Anne Wangler, we talk to her about Raynaud’s Syndrome. Our Heat-Line helps many patients avoid numb hands, circulation problems or pain.", says Roger Savior.

3rd tip: The little ovens for your hands: head-pads

In addition to warm insulation and functional materials, heat pads in Savior gloves also heat up: small, natural heating pads come into an extra pocket on the backhand, and give off cozy warmth for up to 8 hours. That’s enough for a day of skiing.

4th tip: Heat from inside

Eat and drink yourself warm! The right nutrition sustainably supports the cardiovascular system. So: fresh food, vitamins and valuable minerals are the order of the day! In the short term, a warm tea also helps, it warms from the inside and the hands can be additionally warmed up at the bowl.

5th tip: Look after yourself!

Sufficient water, healthy nutrition and enough sleep are directly related to a positive heat balance. Pleasure products that worsen the blood circulation, however, are often the triggers for a quick feeling of cold. These include smoking and alcohol in the first place. When we are under stress, our body releases more adrenaline. This also leads to vasoconstriction and thus to cold hands and feet. So: consciously relax and take time out.
