Got super dry hands? Want to give them some love? Here are a few tips to get them in perfect shape this winter!
Your hands are exposed to the elements more than any other body part - apart from perhaps your face! Whether it's the wind, cold, rain or sun you should be making sure to pay extra attention to them to keep them nice and soft.
You definitely need to start with a good hand cream. There are so many that we love, but we’re really into the Designer Brands Paw Paw Plus Hand Cream at the moment. This is nothing like the Paw Paw ointments you might be used to. It contains Paw Paw Extract as well as cocoa butter, shea butter, jojoba oil and vitamin E. It has a really creamy formula and smells great! Designer Brands products are available from select pharmacies and Price Attack stores across Australia and New Zealand.
We talk so much about exfoliating our bodies and our faces, but are you making sure to extend all that scrubbing to the back of your hands? Next time you’re using a scrub in the shower make sure to really give the backs of your hands a good exfoliation. We’re obsessed with Urban Rituelle’s Beachcomber Body Scrubs. They smell like summer and gently buff away dead skin. They contain Aloe Vera to heal & nourish, Coconut Oil to soften & soothe, plus vitamin-rich Kelp extract to protect & repair skin. You can purchase Urban Rituelle on their official website.
Protect Your Nails
There’s nothing better than pretty nails, but are you actually making sure to take care of them? Changing my nail polish every few days definitely weakens my nails, plus I’ve just ended a long shellac addiction that saw me getting my nails soaked in acetone and filed every few weeks. The Nailene Treatment 2 Go is a base and top coat in one. You can protect your nails, and seal in your colour with one very simple tool! Plus because it’s a pen shape you’ll be able to throw it in your suitcase on your next trip. Nailene products are available at Priceline, Target, Kmart and more retailers across Australia.
