Did you know that your hands, not your face, are the first part of your body susceptible to signs of aging? Think about that the next time you slather on your serum and face cream but neglect your hands and nails. With cooler temperatures and drying weather, now is the time to really boost your hand health and nurture and nourish your nails to keep them looking and feeling their best without dry, cracked, unsightly skin. Sharon Hernandez, Beauty Educator at The Nail Spa, shared her top hand health tips with Savoir Flair to ensure your mitts make it through the winter and stay perfect and protected.

1

Cuticle Care

The sensitive skin around the nail bed can begin to peel and split when your hands are thirsting for moisture. Keep a cuticle oil or cream in your handbag to keep hangnails at bay. Top Tip: If you’re on the go, use a little lip balm on your nails!

2

Moisturize

Store a hand lotion at your desk and in every bag you use to ensure you always have a hydrating solution wherever you are. Make sure to always apply your hand cream after you wash your hands – every time.

3

Cover Up

Covering your hands while outdoors will help protect them against winds and dry air. At night, wearing cotton gloves over a moisturizing treatment can help heal cracks and other rough patches. Finally, always wear rubber gloves when you’re working with harsh chemicals or doing household chores.

4

Pick the Right Products

There are plenty of products available that claim they can strengthen your nails, but, believe it or not, some contain chemicals that actually weaken and dehydrate the nail bed despite giving your nails a stronger feel. Steer clear of any product that contains formaldehyde, a top culprit.

5

Complete TLC

If it’s too late for these preventative measures, it’s time for a heavy-duty hydrating spa visit. Schedule a paraffin manicure service to get supple hands and fingernails in no time.
