Everyday we use our hands for doing myriad jobs but we hardly take care of them. The result is that our hands turn rough and unattractive.
If you want to find out how to make hands soft then you have to read on. You don’t have to sacrifice your household chores in order to take care of your hands.
Wash With Care
When you wake up in the morning you should wash your hands using a very gentle liquid soap designed for washing hands. Then dry your hands with a very soft towel. Don’t rub your hands but pat dry the water.
After that you should immediately use a hand cream or a moisturizer, which will help in sealing the necessary moisture for keeping your hands hydrated. Never use a bar soap for cleaning your hands. Before you go to bed, you should also apply a rich moisturizer on your hands and other parts of your body.
Wear Protective Rubber Gloves
While working or carrying out domestic chores such as washing clothes or utensils you have to touch detergents that have strong chemicals in them. These chemicals can damage your hands as well as nails. If you want to avoid this mishap you should wear protective rubber gloves while working. The gloves will prevent your hands from becoming dry and rough.
Scrub Your Hands
Once in a week, you should use a scrub on your hands for exfoliating the dead cells. People, who have dry skin, can exfoliate their hands everyday. You can use the same scrub that you use for your face. Gently rub the scrub on your knuckles, the gaps between your fingers, palms, and the area around the nails.
Don’t use nail polish too often. Let your nails breathe and get some air. If you wear nail polish for many days at a stretch then your nails may get discolored.
