Manicures are not cheap, and it can be difficult to maintain your hands and keep them soft until your next manicure. Spending a lot of time working with your hands can exacerbate this problem. There are a few easy things you can do to keep your hands soft and smooth until your next manicure. These tips are also very budget-friendly.
* Wear Gloves in Winter: Cold weather can dry your skin out and make it rough to the touch. When you have to go outside during the cold winter months, always wear mittens or gloves to protect your hands from the harsh temperatures.
* Use Moisturizing Lotion: Use a high-quality moisturizing lotion on your hands before bed each night, and during the day when you need a burst of moisture on your skin. Choose one with natural ingredients and oils. Some lotions have chemicals in them that can actually dry out your skin, so research lotions before you buy.
* Use Olive Oil: A very thin layer of olive oil can help your hands stay soft and smooth. Simply apply the oil to your hands at bedtime. You don’t have to do this every night – once every three or four days will suffice. Let the oil soak into your hands for a few minutes and then rinse off. Olive oil will help you keep your soft hands until your next manicure.
* Maintain Your Nails: Your nails are as essential to soft hands as your skin is. Keep nails filed smooth and remove hangnails or overgrown cuticles. Use a cuticle oil or nail oil to keep your nails and cuticles in great shape.
Having beautiful hands doesn’t have to be expensive or time-consuming! Use these easy tips to maintain your manicure. You can have beautiful hands that you will never be ashamed of!
