Hands are one of the most visible parts of our body and one of the most abused too. We use them in everyday activities and they are exposed to climate, chemicals and risk of injury. Therefore they need a lot of pampering, yet their care is often overlooked. Here are a few tips to keep your hands looking soft and beautiful.
Always wear sunscreen: sun exposure damages skin causing wrinkles, brown spots and sagging and sallow skin. So, make sure you use a broad spectrum sunscreen before going out.
Moisturize: moisturize hands often to keep them looking young and soft, especially after you’ve just washed them. This is especially important for people, like beauticians, who often get their hands wet in their daily work.
Pat hands dry frequently: pat your hands dry frequently to keep them from getting chapped and cracked and to avoid the development of fungal infections.
Wear gloves: always wear gloves when washing the dishes, doing the gardening o cleaning the house to protect your hands from chemicals, dust and pollution.
Exfoliate: exfoliate your hands once a week to remove dead cells and keep them soft.
Manicure: get a manicure at least once a week. It will keep your nails healthy and will make your hands look younger.
