You have your entire winter fashion look ready with those beautiful jackets, boots and wraps. However, all goes down the drain when most of us look at those wrinkled patchy fingers during winters. The good news is that you can easily make your hands look prettier during winters by following these hacks.
Solar Over Acrylics
Acrylic nails have been a huge rage for quite a while. It is understandable that everyone craves for those runway nails and acrylics offer a simple solution. However, regular acrylics and scrubbing off glue can harm your nails in the long run. Solar nails are a great alternative which rely less on tough glues, are easier to take off and are much more durable and gentle on your nails.
Beautiful hands require cleaning and cleansing just like your facial skin. Winters and cold temperatures should not be an excuse to not wash your hands. However, it is totally understandable that keeping your hands under running water can be extremely difficult and also very drying. A good alternative is to take a bowl of warm water mixed with a mild hand wash or shampoo. Dip your hands in it for few minutes and then dry them with a soft wash cloth. Hot Towels are also a great way of a comfortable cleansing session in winters.
You cannot expect your hands to glow and look beautiful if you do not moisturize it religiously. Although your moisturizer is an all year round ritual, your regular moisturizer might not be enough to do the job when the weather is much colder and drier. Some people also develop skin conditions such as eczema due to extreme dryness in winters. Therefore, consider switching to a much heavier formula in winters.
You can try using body butters or shea butter and glycerin-based formulations. Many dermatologists and cosmetologists also swear by massaging coconut oil on very dry skin. Keep a hand cream handy to be used every time your hands feel dry or are exposed to wind or water.
It cannot be emphasized enough that how important a good manicure is to make your hands look neat, tidy and pretty. Manicures are not only important for your hand care, but also important for your nail care and hygiene. Trimmed, filed nails with a gorgeous polish just adds the right oomph factor to your look.
However, it is very important that you do not go overboard with your manicures – something which is common with inexperienced manicure staff at salons. It is generally a common practice to cut off and push back cuticles during manicures in order to make the hands look sleeker and cleaner. While it might look appealing physically, it actually does more harm than good to your nails and fingers. Cuticles are a natural barrier that keeps dirt from getting into your nail bed and skin. Therefore, handle them gently and avoid pushing them too far.
Solar Over Acrylics
Acrylic nails have been a huge rage for quite a while. It is understandable that everyone craves for those runway nails and acrylics offer a simple solution. However, regular acrylics and scrubbing off glue can harm your nails in the long run. Solar nails are a great alternative which rely less on tough glues, are easier to take off and are much more durable and gentler on your nails.
People who manage households or work in conditions where hands are exposed to wind, water or are handle substances such as detergents have the worst skin conditions. If you are someone who cannot avoid such exposures, protect your hands by using a clean pair of hand gloves when working in such conditions. Hand gloves will help protect your skin from direct exposure to water and other harmful exposures and will also protect your nails from getting chipped.
