Winter Is Coming

Its time to soften up, ladies!

As most of you can relate, those who have always had sensitive skin to the cold will get dry cuticles and chapped hands straight away if left too late.

Isnt it just a shame that we focus more on our face nowadays, remembering to carefully moisturise it in the morning and invest in face masks and the works, but forgetting to look after our precious hands & feet?!

We live busy lives, we work hard, we have no time for that. But we SHOULD make time for that. You SHOULD make time for yourself to take a moment and love the skin you live in, to keep it hydrated inside and out. Luckily there are plenty of ways to maintain a supple skin and the effort can be minimal.

CUTICLE OILS

These are not only lightweight and portable, but at the same time so easy to use, with just one swipe! Did I mention they smell heavenly?!

These are specifically made for the cuticle area, as the nail plate and surrounding skin can become dry from washing our hands frequently, if using an air dryer at work, and even from exposing our skin to hard water.

Cuticle oils usually contain Vitamin E and Jojoba Oil which are the best to use on the skin.

HAND CREAMS

It goes without saying that we use hand creams or body lotions because we love their smell and the feeling of softness they leave behind. Nowadays you can get hand creams from as small as 5ml, in different shapes and with various dispense mechanisms.

Some prefer the lotion pumps, some like the cream pots more, as long as youre using them on a daily basis, chapped skin can be a distant memory. If you dont like the oily feel about them, try a non-greasy hand cream that absorbs quickly.
