The colder season can be harsh on the skin especially on the hands which tend to get neglected. Dry rough hands holding you back from sporting the latest nail color trends? Here are my top tips to transform dull, dry hands –
Tip 1 : Hydration – Moisturize your hands every time you wash them, just as you would apply moisturizer when you wash your face. If you are in the habit of using hand sanitizer several times a day, your hands may need some extra care as the alcohol in hand sanitizer can be drying on the hands.
Tip 2 : Night time pamper – Use a rich hydrating cream or treatment oil on the hands before going to bed. Massage your hands well concentrating on areas of dryness like the cuticles and nail beds until the cream/oil gets absorbed. You could also wear a pair of cotton gloves after the massage to help the product work on the skin overnight.
