Beautiful, Flawless Hands And Nails

Looking after the beauty and health of hands should be every woman’s primary concern. Look at anyone’s hands and you can usually gauge their age. Your hands age due to the exposure to sunlight, chemicals, wear and tear and most important due to hands being the workhorse of the body. So why is it that while you can have some success in holding back the years on your face, when it comes to hands it is a much harder task! Or is it?

How do you keep your hardest- working parts soft, smooth, and youthful for years to come?

There are a variety of small things that you can do daily to keep your hands looking beautiful.

  1. Moisturise

One of the easiest ways to remember to moisturise daily, is to have bottle of lotion around the house in the sinks of your kitchen, laundry and bathroom. This way whenever you wash your hands you get in the habit of rehydrating your hands. It’s simple and it works.

Along the same lines, carrying a small bottle of lotion in your handbag makes it easier to moisturise. Those travel packs come in handy.

You don’t have to spend a lot of money in hand creams; using lanolin cream is great, some people love using olive oil or coconut oil and they are just as good as expensive hand creams.

  1. Exfoliate

The world is a busy place and therefore being efficient is smart, and economical. Anytime you exfoliate your face use the excess product and exfoliate your hands too. Rub the excess into your hands and cuticles. Healthy hand cuticles make your hands look beautiful and they are important part of nail health as they protect your nails.

Cutting your cuticles incorrectly can lead to infections, which are painful and very unsightly. The best way to take care of them, is to use quality cuticle creams and oils in addition to gently pushing them back. Rub your preferred cuticle oil into the base of your nails and then gently push back the skin.

  1. Hand Treatment

Occasionally, treat yourself to a deep, intense hand treatment overnight. Use an extremely rich lotion, cuticle oil, slip your hands into a cotton glove and go to bed. When you wake up your hands are going to be super soft and hydrated, it’s a great overnight fix.

Think of hand care in a similar manner as any beauty routine; you just have to find what works for you and try to be consistent.
