The easiest way to care for it is the use of the cream. But this cosmetic procedure is only one component of a comprehensive approach to the care of hands. The guarantor of the youth and beauty of any hands is proper care. For this reason, it is pointless to focus on the size of your fingers or the shape of your nails. Much more useful to be puzzled by ways to positively affect the elasticity, firmness and smoothness of the skin. Of course not to do without giving nails a healthy pink color, strengthen nail plates. It is also important that the nails look neat. So, consider the strategy of proper care of the hands. Magicforum gathered tips for hand care.
The correct approach to the selection of Soaps
If you are a chemist, it is unlikely that you will understand the list of ingredients listed on the colorful packages, but to distinguish normal soap bar liquid soap or household may be able, and this is already enough. So, the usual lump of soap, shelf life not exceeding 3 years, contains alkali. This product saves your hands from dust, dirt and bacteria, but, unfortunately, deprives moisture of the upper layers of the skin. Remember, lye soap for the face. It is used in the care of hands and frequent use of creams with moisturizing effect.
Soap also relates to alkaline products, but it is somewhat better, as it is enriched with plant oils, beneficial for the hands.
Liquid soap, which is composed of surfactants (surface active agents), more than takes care of the hands. It doesn’t destroy their protective layer, suitable for sensitive and dry skin.
There’s even a tool such as “soap without soap”. This cleansing tile or familiar to us block, also containing surfactants is alkaline. It does not dry the skin or cause irritation.
For sensitive skin you can look at selling soap. This means the composition does not contain alkali and has a neutral pH level. But glycerin soap is often ordinary soap manufacturer who was chosen to draw attention to your product. The fact that glycerin (moisturizes the skin and thus easily removable) often is added in the usual lump of soap.
Wear gloves while cleaning
Household chemicals are very harmful to our hands. And the more we use it the bigger the problem. What conclusion can we draw from this? It’s simple. While solving everyday problems associated with the use of chemicals always use rubber gloves. A reasonable solution would be to combine the pleasant with the useful. We are talking about the hand mask.
If the hand was not gloves and hands dirty, it’s not worth the power to scrub the dirt. After working on the plot you can wash your hands with soap and water, adding to the solution a teaspoon of sugar. If your hands darkened from the cleaning of vegetables, they can be wiped with a cotton pad soaked in vinegar or citric acid solution. Then you just need to wash your hands with soap and water to wash the composition. Lemon juice has a lightening effect, it is used and in that case, if you want to lighten pigment spots on the skin.
In addition to the baths and masks, there is a kind of care as peeling. This procedure which occurs the flaking of dead skin particles. To do this, use scrubs. They can be bought in the store and make yourself. The main component of the scrub is abrasive particles that clean the skin. As an abrasive can be used, for example, sugar or ground coffee.
To prepare a scrub of sugar you need to mix 2 teaspoons sugar with 1 teaspoon of special cosmetic (or olive) oil. For coffee scrub you will need 2 teaspoons of ground coffee and 1 teaspoon of olive or rose oil.
Scrubs should be applied to the skin with gentle circular massage movements. Peeling is not recommended too often, it is enough to do it 1 time a week. The procedure is good because after it moisturizer penetrates deeper into the skin and its effect is amplified.
Care for nails
The appearance of the hand depends a lot on the nail, so for their health too need to follow. To prevent nails from kailis and not break, they should be sawed in one direction, and to use glass nail file or wooden or cardboard nail file with coating. To remove the nail Polish, preferably a means that does not contain acetone.
Use the funds to strengthen nails. Some of them look like clear lacquer, which is good for two reasons: nails will Shine and get the nutrition needed. Always use a base coat that contains calcium, do not apply varnish directly to the nail plate.
Nail care also involves the bath. For example, the same solution on the basis of sea salt is useful not only hands, but the nail plates. Importantly, use salt with no aromatic and coloring additives. One of popular and easy tools for nail care is considered olive oil because it is rich in various vitamins and trace elements. It should be rubbed into the base of the nails so they received extra food.
Wash your hands in warm water
Hot water dries the skin, and cold can cause peeling. Not to mention the fact that some people may experience an allergic reaction to hand wash in cold water. So washing hands is only in warm water at a comfortable temperature. After washing, it is important to carefully wipe his hands, because the longer they stay wet, the more skin expose to the wind. And as a result dryness, flaking, redness, cracks.
Regularly use a hand cream
Use hand cream is for every day, because the skin of hands exposed to stress at any time of the year, not just in the winter when hands are cold or weathered. The problem is only the choice of cosmetic products. Today on the shelves you can find softening, moisturizing, nourishing, anti-inflammatory, protective and other creams. Here again it is necessary to read the composition.
Very useful in the vitamins. So, vitamin a rejuvenate the skin, and vitamin E – restores its structural elements.
Hard leather will be useful to extracts and oils. Avocado oil smoothes the skin, tea tree leaf extract kills bacteria and reduces inflammation.
The priority tools with elastin and collagen. This is especially true of the so-called “age” creams.
Apply the cream on hands in a circular motion: a gentle massage will help the remedy soak in faster and enhance blood circulation. First gently massage your fingers, starting from the tip (including nails) as if you pull the glove.
In any case, do not use cream before the walk and especially at low temperatures. Any cream consists of water that freezes in the pores and turns into tiny pieces of ice (i.e., water increases in volume). In addition, in the cold wear gloves to protect your hands.
Use alcohol sanitizers as little as possible
To have on hand sanitizerwhen you can not wash hands, is very convenient. However, to abuse such hygienic gels not worth it, yet they not only remove the germs but also dissolve the natural protective layer of the skin. And they contain alcohol. And although it is a great antiseptic, but it dries the skin and leads to its peeling. The same applies to alcohol-based wet wipes.
Prepare a hydrating mask and baths
Hand care includes masks and baths. Many are thinking about such procedures, when the skin is red and scaly. And you need to hold them constantly (twice a week).
The best effect is given a mask at night. The most popular of such masks is the egg. For its preparation you need to mix 1 egg yolk, and honey (1 tbsp) and then add to the mix a little oatmeal (preferably crushed so that the composition was more homogeneous). You can add to 1 tablespoon of oil obtained from olives. The mask should be applied on the skin massaging movements. Its enough to keep 5-10 minutes, but it is better to leave for the night, wearing special cotton gloves. Then the effect will be more noticeable: egg face mask moisturizes the skin, making it supple and elastic.
Not less effective and the baths for the hands. One of the most simple – a bath with sea salt. To cook it, only need to add 1 teaspoon of sea salt in 1 liter of warm water. Then you should hold your hands in this solution for about 10-20 minutes. The procedure is carried out 1 time a week.
Generally, recipes for masks and baths very much. They make use of herbs, olive oil, glycerin and many other components. The main thing when selecting recipes to select only those components which you are not allergic. In addition, it is worth remembering that the use of compositions comprising lemon juice, should not be, if hands have cracks or sores. The same applies to hot masks. If your hands suffer from skin diseases (eczema, fungus), can not carry out any procedures necessary to consult a doctor who will prescribe appropriate medicines.
