With many good reasons to look after your hands why not show them you care?
Maybe you work in an office; typing all day. Or perhaps you’re gardening outside, doing chores inside or you’ve just done the big weekly shop and are loaded with bags. Whatever you get up to, your hands rarely get the TLC they need. The skin on our hands is surprisingly delicate. They don’t have many oil producing glands and this results in palms and fingers needing a little extra love! They have to cope with exposure to the weather and the general toll taken by our daily routines.
Regular moisturising is a great place to start to get into the habit of treating our hands with the care they need. Also, various weather conditions can really dry out of our skin, particularly our hands, so protecting them from the elements with a quality hand cream is a good idea.
Tip: Wearing gloves in Winter helps our skin to retain its moisture and stay soft until Summer! Suns rays can be equally damaging to our hands so it’s important we remember to wear suncream on our hands as well as our body.
A mindful hand massage is a fabulous way to relax and care for your hands.
