With everyday use, your leather handbag is exposed to several things that can be damaging. However, when properly cared for, leather handbags can last for decades. There's a lot you can do to maintain the appearance and longevity of your handbag, from cleaning and conditioning the leather to storing it in perfect conditions. A little care can go a long way in preventing permanent damage.
How often should I moisture my bag?
Leather can dry out and fracture over time. To prevent this, you should hydrate or condition your purse regularly. A handbag should be conditioned once or twice a year under normal conditions or every three months if you live in a dry climate. Remember, however, that the frequency with which you condition the bag will be determined by how often you use it and the conditions it is exposed to. Leather conditioners or creams help moisturize the leather so that it doesn't dry out and crack. We recommend using a product meant for leather bags, such as the Luxe Bag Spa Leather Protection and Moisturizing Cream.

If it begins to peel, it will need to be replaced entirely because it is beyond restoration.
Why do I Have to Moisturize My Leather Bags?
You may forget that leather is a natural product, just like our skin. So what happens when our skin gets dry? First, we apply lotion to it to help restore and seal moisture into the skin to prevent drying and cracking. Similarly, with leather, when you moisturize it regularly, you help maintain the color and elasticity to avoid drying and cracking.
However, it is essential to remember that too much moisture is also not good for your bag. This is why you should never over-moisturize or leave your bag in its box. It's best to keep your bags stored away in only the dust bag.
