It’s time to focus on one of the most neglected areas of the body: the hands. Your hands, useful tools that you may not think about past a routine wash or maybe a manicure, can often be the first part of the body to show signs of aging and dehydration. Taking good care of the skin on the hands is paramount to a whole skincare routine. So how do you best take care of your hands?
How to Care for Your Hands
The key to properly caring for your hands is investing in the right products to keep them soft, soothed, and protected. This means skipping the cheap hand wash at the corner store in favour of a more nourishing option. This may seem like a silly thing to invest in, but trust us: a little extra luxury in your day never hurt anyone. And having soft, beautifully scented hands can be a serious mood booster, even on your worst days. That’s not to say every sink needs a luxe hand treatment wash. But keeping a lovely option in your bathroom is ideal for maintaining silky, ageless hands.
Maintain Optimal Hydration: The second step in ensuring your hands are soft, soothed, and healthy is applying the right amount of moisture. Proper hydration, particularly for hands that face dry air or extreme temperatures, can make the difference between cracked, raw skin and soft, blemish-free hands. Encourage hand hydration by popping a high-quality hand cream in your purse, on your bedside table, or beside your hand wash. It’ll be an easy habit to nourish after washing or throughout the day.
