Hand & Nail Care

Last Updated on March 4, 2024 by Asfa Rasheed

With the nail craze at its peak, your hands are always in the limelight. To keep those beautiful hands always on point, here are a few hand and nail care steps that you can simply do at home. However, Nail Salon Estero also pampers your hands just the way you like it. 

Use a Hand Wash that is Milky

The clearer the wash, the drier it will cause your skin to be. You need to also avoid any kind of soap that has harsh chemicals. Instead, search for a hand wash with more natural ingredients like tea tree oil or eucalyptus. 

Never Dip Your Hands in Very Hot or Very Cold Water

Hot water dries the skin by stripping off the sebum. Cold water can cause a constriction and a dilation of the capillary vessels which further leads to any redness. Always wash your hands in room temperature water to avoid any of the two outcomes. 

Moisturize with Oils

The best way to moisturize your skin is by rubbing in oil. There are many different kinds of essential oils in the market. The best ones are safflower seed oil, eucalyptus oil or even lavender oil. 

Learn to Care for your Cuticles

If your cuticles are dry and torn out, your manicure will look a million years old. Cutting your cuticles will open your fingers to infection and will even make your hands look worse. The best way to care for your cuticles is by exfoliating with a body scrub and only cut the hangnails that you can wiggle. 

Soften your cuticles with a cuticle eliminator and then push them back with a cuticle stick.

Moisturize your Hands after Sanitizing Them

We do not really think that it is necessary but it is highly important. There are very high amounts of alcohol present in sanitizers that dehydrate the skin and the nails. This also causes nail polish to chip faster. When the sanitizer has dried, you need to moisturize your hands to retain that moisture. 

Apply Sunscreen

You may think, sunscreen for the hands???? Well yes, your hands can wrinkle and spot just like the rest of your body. Whenever you apply sunscreen to your face, rub the remaining onto your hands as well. 

Anti-Aging Face Cream Does Wonders

Anti-aging face creams not only works for your face but it also does miracles to your hands. The retinol present in them improves the elasticity of your hands. To avail most of its advantages, apply it to the back of your hands before sleeping and let it do its magic. 

Put on a Mask

Apply a moisturizing face mask on your hands and hide them plastic bags. Wrap them in a warm towel for 5 minutes. The heat helps the mask penetrate into the skin, leaving you with soft, supple and beautiful hands.
