Give your hands the care and attention they deserve by following these simple beauty tips:
Lock in the Moisture: Applying moisturiser to damp skin on your hands immediately after a shower or bath allows skin to seal in the moisturiser. Choose a moisturiser that`s effective and safe for sensitive skin, and free of potentially irritating fragrances or dyes.
Guard Against Harsh Chemicals: Exposure to chemicals and detergents in household cleaning products can take a toll on hands and dry out and irritate sensitive skin. Look for gloves that are designed to keep hands looking their best. “Playtex Living Gloves have multiple layers of neoprene to provide superior protection, versus ordinary latex gloves, from the harsh chemicals found in common household cleaning products,” says Joe Hourihan, a vice president of research and development at Playtex Products, Inc. Get into the habit of wearing gloves every time you clean.
Protect Your Manicure: Your hands are your ultimate accessory and you`ll want them to look good in any season. Wearing gloves whenever you`re cleaning will help your manicures last longer and keep your nails from becoming brittle.
Take Your Hands to the Spa: Warm a cup of milk in the microwave for 30 seconds (or until warm but comfortable to the touch). Pour the milk into a bowl and soak your hands in it for five minutes to strengthen nails and hydrate skin.
Following a few simple beauty tips may be all it takes to keep your hands beautiful.
