Home Care for Perfect Hands
Never cut your cuticles
The one thing you should not ever do to your hands, as the cuticles protect your nails. Cutting them encourages the skin to grow back faster and leaves the skin underneath open to bacteria and infection. Instead, push it back with an orange stick.
Hydrate at the right time
Moisturizing your hands is essential, and it’s also vital to know when they need it. We especially recommend moisturizing your hands before going to bed, after a bath or shower and always after swimming. In the winter months, always carry a small hand cream with you.
Take care of your diet
Drink lots of water and have green smoothies, which are super hydrating. We leave you a straightforward recipe that is ideal for moisturizing the skin and preventing premature ageing:
Ingredients and preparation:
- One cucumber.
- One tablespoon of alfalfa.
- One stick of celery.
- One clove garlic.
- Two glasses of mineral water (400 ml).
Peel the garlic clove and remove the seeds from the cucumber. Clean the rest of the ingredients and pass it all through the blender. The ideal is to consume this shake very fresh, on an empty stomach, to take advantage of all its properties and achieve healthy skin.
Take Care of your ‘Stepparents.’
Trim it as close to the nail as possible, then dab with cuticle oil or almond oil to condition the cuticle if you don’t have any. The results? As if the stepfather had never existed.
Never Wash without Gloves
Gloves protect your hands from the chemicals present in cleaning supplies, responsible for many allergies and skin irritations.
Avoid Anything that can Damage your Nails
That kind of thing like opening a soda can, or avoiding touching fruits like pomegranate and raspberries, or beets, as it can stain your nails.
Protect yourself from the Sun
You can take it alone to receive your dose of vitamin D, but always with SPF 30 or more, and never at midday. UV rays cause water loss and decrease the skin’s natural hydration factor.
Home Care For Perfect Feet
Our feet are often overlooked as a body part that needs little TLC. But many of us are on our feet most of the day, and our poor heels and toes need a little TLC. Here are some tips to keep your feet in top condition.
1. Put Your Feet In Warm Water
A warm bath will refresh them and improve blood circulation throughout the foot. It would be best to do this essential regularly to have your beautiful and relaxed feet.
2. Sun Protection
Sun protection is not only necessary for the face and hands. It’s equally crucial for your feet, as too much sun exposure makes your feet look drier. Every time you go out in the sun, apply a generous amount of sunscreen to your feet. It will protect your feet from sunburn and darkening.
3. Exercise Them
Exercising the feet is as helpful as exercising any other body part. Walking barefoot, trying to pick up a pencil with your toes, stepping on your toes, then your heels, or the outside of your feet first, then the inside of your feet. In this way, we will keep each foot part flexible and in good shape.
4. Get A Homemade Pedicure
It is not the same as a professional pedicure, but at least you will get optimal results while you cannot go to your beauty salon:
An essential thing to do is trim and shape your nails. Remove any nail polish you’re wearing with a good nail polish remover, and then trim the nail. Cut them straight so as not to dig into your skin when they grow.
Clean your feet by filling a bowl with warm water and adding some bath salts if you wish. Place your feet in such a way that it covers the ankle. You can also add a few drops of essential oil for a better result. Put some smooth pebbles or sand in the bottom of the container or bathtub. These stones will give you a nice massage when you place your feet on them. After putting your feet in the water and cleaning them, dry them well with a clean towel.
After bathing, the next thing to do is exfoliate the skin on your feet to remove all dry and dead skin cells. Be gentle with your feet, and don’t rub too hard. If you don’t have a foot scrub, take Note of this homemade recipe based on brown sugar and almond oil to make it yourself. You can substitute almond oil if you don’t have olive grease.
Almond oil remains a creation that offers brilliant softness and elasticity to the skin. Together with the exfoliating properties of sugar, it can be magnificent for removing dead cells from the feet. Mix a few tablespoons of sugar with the almond oil, rub it gently and rinse with warm water to finish.
Now use a good quality moisturizer to get soft feet and prevent cracks. Put a generous amount of moisturizer on your feet and massage well. This massage regularly stimulates the nerve endings, improves blood circulation, and nourishes the foot’s skin and muscles.
Before applying nail polish, apply a base coat. This previous step will make your nail polish last longer. And as the last step, apply a top coat to add extra shine to your nails. o Finish by painting your nails: For a 10th finish, you can decorate your nails with your favourite colour.
