The seasons are changing and our skin is going to change with it. Whether we want it to or not. Our hands are always out and exposed to everything we come in contact with. We wash our hands constantly, especially during cold season. Here are a few tips to keep your hands looking great this Fall.
Cover those Hands!
Wearing rubber gloves when you wash your dishes helps to protect your skin from the soap and hot water. I don’t know about you, but I always forget to put gloves on when washing dishes! Remember that trick about putting moisturizer on your hands then putting gloves on before bed, it really works. The moisturizer gets locked in and helps your dry, parched hands overnight. Gloves are not just for keeping warm in the winter!
Keep the Moisturize With You
Try to get into the habit of applying hand cream as much as you can. Keep a bottle within reach at all times. Store some in your desk, on the bathroom counter, handbag and your car. If you don’t love the feeling of moisturizer on your hands, try an argan oil-enriched cream, it will keep your hands soft and healthy.
Skip the Manicure
If you get your nails done frequently, the acetone polish remover can strip moisture form your nails and cuticles. Give your nails a break from polish for a while. If you do need polish on your nails, use a remover that helps nourish your nails like a acetone free polish remover.
Keep Cuticles Happy
Our cuticles are prone to drying out and when they are dried out, we get hangnails. No one likes a hangnail! The cuticles on your fingers need some extra special care. Use cuticle oil twice a day to keep them well moisturized.
