How to take care of our hands and manicure

From the cold weather in the winter our hands suffer a lot. Except that the fingers freeze, despite the gloves, the skin becomes dry, cracked, and the nails become more fragile.

In order to solve these problems, we will not recommend you to go every week to a manicurist, but we will give you a few tips to apply at home.

For starters, never forget your gloves and hand cream when you leave home.

Apply a suitable nourishing cream after each hand washing and necessarily wear warm gloves.

It is likely from the cold, on the side of the nails, the cuticles to become more. This is due to the frostbite of the fingers and the harsh weather conditions.

Obtain with a suitable nourishing gel or oil and apply it regularly. It is best that this be done in the evening when you relax and watch a movie or read a book in order to safely the emulsion absorb into the skin.

Against the chapped palms you can use a deep nourishing cream. Apply it at bedtime with massage movements.

You can also use the help of special gloves. They aim to warm your hands and help the cream to absorb better into the skin rather than in the sheets.

With the yellowing of the nail plate you can fight with the help of freshly squeezed lemon juice. Dip your fingers in it or rub the nails with a cotton swab soaked with the juice.

Use a nail strengthener because it will strengthen the nail plate and preserve the integrity of your manicure.

If your nails split, it is necessary to take particularly serious care of them. First – do not cut the nails but simply file them with a suitable nail file.

Use nourishing oils regularly and eat fresh fruits and vegetables, and if necessary you can take and the appropriate food supplements.

The condition of the hair and nails is often a testament to the health of the body, so if you have any problems, do not take it as a purely cosmetic defect.
