Our hands can make a big impression on people. Sometimes it is the second thing they notice after our face. So, we should treat our hands with more importance and take care of them.
In that regard, here are 5 easy tips that you should use daily for beautiful hands:
- Wash your hands
Well, of course, you should wash your hands, but what a lot of people are doing wrong is using water that is too cold or too warm. Wash your hands only in lukewarm water. This goes whether it is summer or winter outside.
Also, make sure to use a good soap, one that will not dry out the skin.
- Moisturize your hands
After you’ve washed your hands in lukewarm water, you should apply a quality moisturizer. Make sure to do this at least twice per day.
On that note, keep in mind that the skin tends to get dryer during winter, so it’s a good idea to moisturize a bit more during this season.
- Wear gloves to protect your hands
Be sure to wear rubber gloves whenever you know your hands can interact with some chemicals. You should also wear rubber gloves when washing the dishes or doing some work in the garden.
Also, you should wear gloves to protect your hands in the winter, when it is cold, the cold air can dry the skin quickly.
- Scrub to remove dead skin
You may not notice this with a bare eye, but you probably have some dead skin cells on the surface of your skin. You need to scrub your hands with a good exfoliator at least once every week in order to remove dead skin cells.
- Watch what you eat
What you eat shows on your skin. To put it simple things like sugar, alcohol are bad for your skin, while Vitamins B and E and plenty of proteins will ensure that your hands are soft and your nails strong.
