By  |  1 Comment

Water, cold, household …. our hands are particularly exposed to weather and other external aggressions. Result: they become brittle and dry. To avoid redness, chapping and irritation, here are some hand care tips to consider to keep pretty hands all year.

1- Scrub :

To find soft and beautiful hands, having a good scrub will rid them of dead cells. One can use a homemade scrub by mixing 2 tablespoons of salt with a little olive oil and lemon juice. Erase and rinse with clear water.

2- Mask :

Hand skin is like the face, it needs extra care. A mask will give back the hands skin its fine texture and ensure protection against external attacks:

Mix a tablespoon of olive oil with a tablespoon of honey and few drops of essential lemon (or lemon juice). Honey and lemon have an anti-aging effect and olive oil nourishes the skin. Rinse with clean water or rose water. For people with brown spots on the hands, the essential oil of celery is very effective (few drops on the hands are enough: rub one to two minutes).

3- Hydration :

Another essential step to take care of your hands is hydration, especially in winter (beware of chapping and irritation!). You just apply a rich and nourishing cream morning and evening, and massage slowly.

To clean or wash clothes by hand, one must remember to put on rubber gloves or choose hypoallergenic detergents that are for sensitive hands. As for hand washing, prefer soap to alcohol-based gels (they are certainly more convenient but dry the skin).
