Younger Looking Hands

There is no point having gorgeous nails, if your hands look neglected. Here are a few tricks to keep them looking their best, or getting those pretty hands that you once had... back.

Home Manicure

That’s where these easy steps for a home manicure come in super-handy, not only at holiday time, but any time. The process doesn’t take long, and it’s wonderfully relaxing, as well. Find out the simple steps to soothed, nourished and beautiful hands and nails:

1. First, file your nails, going in one direction only. (No sawing!)

2. Wash your hands, then soak them in warm water, buttermilk, or organic apple cider vinegar. The acids in the buttermilk or vinegar will help to slough off dead skin cells.

3. Apply a cold-pressed oil (olive oil will do fine) into your cuticles, near the half-moon shape you can see at the base of your nails. Use the blunt end of an orange-wood stick to gently push the cuticles back from the nails.

4. Dry your hands. Using a fine pumice stone or fine-grit sandpaper block, sand the tops of your nails to get rid of any ridges. Smooth the nail tops with a smoothing file and finish with a buffing chamois. Your nails will be amazingly shiny, almost as if you were wearing clear nail polish.

5. Use a moisturizing cream or lotion to massage your hands and nails.
6.If at all you dont have time for above,apply sunscreen and night cream on ur hands when you apply to your face to counter ageing of hands.
