Here are ways for pretty, supple and beautiful hands.

Keep moisturizing

As hands are repeatedly used for work keeping them moisturized is a good way to prevent skin damage. Maintaining hydration has an excellent impact in preventing wear and tear of delicate hand skin and subsequent drying and cracking.

Use rubber gloves when you are doing hard work like gardening or even laundry.

Avoid UV rays

As with facial skin, ultra-violet rays are harmful for hand skin also. So be cautious while going outside particularly in sunny days. When you are stepping out for long duration apply sunscreen with sun protection factor (SPF) above 15 and better to wear hand gloves to prevent exposure to harsh sun. This blocks the exposure to UVA radiation and will prevent a formation of wrinkles and brown spot.

Regular exfoliation

Regular exfoliation is necessary for removing dead skin cells and rejuvenates beauty of hands. Exfoliation slough-off dead skin cells and facilitates entry of moisturizer deep inside the skin.

Dermatologist insists on use of scrub containing Alpha-hydroxy acid, which dissolves glue, a material that holds dead skin cells together.

Be careful if you experience allergic reaction such as redness, skin irritation or burn with scrub.

Cuticle care

Don’t ignore cuticle, the skin at the base of a fingernail. Never cut your cuticle, as frequent cutting may open nail bed and favor infection. Moisturizing cuticles with cream containing shea butter or cocoa butter make them soft and even.

Nail care

Regular nail care adds a fabulous effect in pretty looking hands. Brittle and unevenly grown nails may hamper beauty of hands. Shape nails with rounded counter using nail scissor. File them gently to get even surface. Wash and dry and then apply nail cream to make them attractive.
