Good Nail and Hand Care

As modern women, we tend to be involved and busy with our daily lives. It is easy to overlook simple things like good nail care. As lovely as it would be to make it to the salon weekly, most of us don’t have that luxury. The good news is that it is easy and cost effective to pamper yourself at home.

One of the most overlooked items available in hand care is the nail brush. I always keep one by my bathroom sink. It had never occurred to me to use one until I had a spa manicure at a salon and the manicurist explained to me how to use it. It soft bristles make your hands feel great. I always use a bit of hand lotion after i scrub my hands to give them some extra moisture. Here are some additional tips for great nail and hand care:

-Make a nightly ritual of applying some hand cream and giving yourself a hand massage. The skin on the top of you hands is thin and easily prone to wrinkles. This is a great tip in helping keep your skin soft and wrinkle free.
-If your nails are dry or brittle just try soaking them in warm, soapy water for around ten minutes a day. After you finish soaking them apply a small amount of lotion.
-Never trim your cuticles unless you have soaked your hands prior. This prevents tearing and skin damage.
-Make sure that you receive your fully daily intake of vitamin C. Not only do it’s increase collagen production it helps your skin keep it’s elasticity.
-Vitamin E is also a great antioxidant and brings dry skin back to life. It provides defense against skin damage and helps repair existing dry, damaged skin.

-If your hands have aged you could look at a non surgical treatment such as skin care products such as Rationale Skin Care
