Timeless Beautiful Hands

Our hands go through the onslaught of dishwashing, laundry and other household work. Our hands become rough and dry also because we do not give it as much attention as we give to our face. However, caring for hands is very vital as they tend to age very fast....and they age prematurely if we don't give them the care that they deserve.

The skin on my hands had become very rough and dry recently and I was wondering what to do.I started applying baby lotion before going to bed but it did not make much of a difference.Then I started using Nivea's "Age Defying Q10 Plus" and it has really softened my hands.Here are some other tips to keep your hands looking great:
  • Always use sunscreen on your hands when you go out during the day.
  • Apply a good hand creme everytime you use soap or detergent.
  • Once a week warm a cup of whole milk and soak your hands in it for ten minutes to hydrate skin.
  • Once a week use a rich moisturizer on your hands and wear cotton gloves before retiring for the night.

Beautiful hands are an important part of our overall grooming. They are very visible parts of our body as we tend to use them quite frequently while talking or expressing ourselves. So I feel that setting aside time to take care of them is worth it!

i agree totally - we really tend to miss out on grooming our hands - and the one thing i have noticed is that well turned out people always have cared for hands. i wonder when i will get into that category. but this will certainly be the first step towards that
