If you’ve spent time outside in this Nelson winter, whether that be gardening, walking, taking part in sports or even watching from the sidelines, there’s a chance it could have taken its toll on your hands. And whilst it’s easy to be vigilant about your facial skincare regime, hands are often forgotten, making them susceptible to the first signs of ageing.
If you’ve noticed that your mitts are giving the game away, it’s time to start treating them with a little TLC, here are our secrets to beautiful hands.
- Cleanse, exfoliate and moisturise – Not just for your face! Washing your hands regularly is obviously important, but be like Goldilocks… Not too hot and not too cold, is the way to go! After you have cleansed don’t forget to dry them properly. Damp hands and cool weather, equal chapped skin! Talk to us about the range of Pure Fiji products that can make your hands happy.
- Feed your fingers – We don’t need to tell you that you are what you eat! Antioxidant-enriched foods are a must to nourish your skin, including the skin on your hands; and to keep them strong and healthy, your nails need protein, calcium, zinc and vitamin B12, to name just a few nutrients. So think, lean meat, fish and dairy with lots of green veg thrown in for good measure.
- Protect your palms… And the backs of your hands more! – That means wearing gloves for chores (and the great outdoors in winter), ramp up the sunscreen too!
- Manicures are a must – A manicure will instantly revive your nails and give your cuticles a much needed moisture boost. For beautiful hands, indulge in the Woman Beauty Nelson, Spa Manicure, this includes a warm sugar scrub and milk soak, hand and forearm massage, cuticle and nail file and buff with polish of your choice. $90 (french extra).
