5 Hand Care Beauty Tips

With the nail art picking up the show, everybody is there to show off her hands and nails. Have beautiful hands with the following great 5 tips that we provide u ladies with.

  • Try to avoid the more clearer cleanser as the clearer the cleanser, the more it may dry out your skin. And be careful with soaps that contain the harsh chemical triclosan. Instead search for naturally antibacterial ingredients such as tea tree oil or eucalyptus or Honey.

  • 2. Avoid icy and too hot water 

    Hot water makes the skin dry. The basic logic behind it is that it takes away sebum thus leading to dry hands. And yes, be aware of icy water too! It can cause constriction and then a dilation of capillary vessels which may in turn lead to redness.

  • Moisture must be absorbed into your skin. And for this we recommend you to lubricating your hands with oils. Above mentioned lube oil is one of the excellent oils available in the market. Check the Amazon link below.

The nail care looks best with proper cuticles. If the cuticles are dry and hard, then any Hand care would look worse.And if you cut your cuticles, that may bean invitation to infection. Exfoliate hands with a body scrub, then nip only hangnails that you can wiggle. Use other softener as mentioned in the related posts on this website.

Hands like face can wrinkle and spot. Thus always use sunscreen lotion to protect it from extremities.




Natural Remedy for Calluses!

Share This:

So many of us suffer from these, hard little patches of built up skin! Don´t worry, its perfectly normal, when a body part continually rubs against something the tender skin forms a protective barrier of hard skin to protect the area it feels is in danger of an injury. The most common place for calluses is on the hands and feet.
It does take time to get rid of them, but it can be done. There are even a couple of good and, even better, natural and inexpensive homemade solutions:

Sugar Scrubs:
Place ¾ cup of granulated sugar in a dry jar, and add enough mineral oil to form a loose paste, after that you can add peppermint, spearmint, sandalwood, musk or any essential oil (optional). Mix it all together, then scrub and gently massage, you can use this anywhere you want to have smooth, soft skin. Do this before shaving your legs, it feels incredible!

Pineapple Peel and Oils:
Cut strips of pineapple peel and cover the callus completely, then tape the pineapple peel in place and leave it on for a couple of hours and repeat it for one week, changing when necessary. The enzymes and acid content of the fresh pineapple will remove the callus. Another option is to apply wheat germ oil, castor oil, sesame oil, coconut oil or olive oil onto the callused area several times a day.

Hand and Feet Beauty Tips

Share This:

There are many people with shiny skin and glossy hair, but their hands and feet are totally unkempt. So, we need to groom ourselves from top to toe. Shabby hands and feet are a blemish on the whole personality.

Hand care

Wash with a non-soap cleanser and use light moisturiser (oil-free) in summer. For thick palms, salicylic acid ointment (3-5%) is usually the best. Vaseline, liquid paraffin, also helps the nails in becoming disease-free. For health of nails, protein is preferred rather than calcium. If there is any problem in the nails, a dermatologist should be consulted as nail diseases are chronic and require prolonged treatment. Use of sunscreen lotion over the dorsal part of the hand helps and if there is any pigmentation, lightening cream at night is helpful.

Feet Care

Washing with a strong soap, as skin is very thick here, helps. Try luke-warm saline soaks – that is putting two tea-spoonful of salt in a litre of lukewarm water. For thick skin (hyperkeratotic), instead of saline, NaHCO3 is put in the same proportion. If the heels or sides of feet are very thick, pumice stone can be used. For corns and calluses, first soften with a corn tape and then do cryotherapy. Usually people have fungus between the toe clefts especially lateral toe clefts, so anti-fungal cream or dusting powder is useful. For smelly feet, KMnO4 wash or condy’s compresses are the rule. That is putting a very few grains of KMnO4, which is a very good antiseptic in a litre of water, making the colour light pink and washing feet once a day. KMnO4 has to be freshly made everyday. Once it turns magenta, it gets oxidised and is no longer effective. Toe nails usually have fungus in about 30% of the general population. It is called Onchomycosis. For that, anti-fungals creams should be started as early as possible
