It is often said that if you want to know someone, check out their hands. The hands reflect the kind of work we do and the activities we love. The more we are into sports or crafts, the more our hands need care. They even show if you wash your dishes by hand. Our daily tasks can make our hands so rough. Pampering is required for one of the most overworked part of our body – our hands.
The first step is to properly shape your nails. Even if your work calls for you to have really short nails, it doesn’t mean you should just square them off. File your nails using an emery board (one direction only please) shape that best suits your hand. You’ll be amazed how much more elegant your hands looks, without them being less capable.
Next, you need to get rid of the dead skin on your hands. You can buy one of the readymade products from companies like Sally Hansen or Crabtree and Evelyn. If you’re working on a budget, you can just fill a bowl with some warm water or buttermilk or natural apple cider vinegar and soak your hands for a while. That will help take the dead skin off.
Taking care of your hands is absolutely relaxing. A little massage of your palms, fingers and wrists can go a long way to help relieve the fatigue of stress.
Considering how much use our hands get, it is a surprise that most people don’t take better care of their hands. It is easy to have a great looking hands if you eat right (green leady vegetables and food rich in iron, vitamin C, B12 and calcium are a must). Improving your diet alone can begin to create wonders in your nails.
