I know it has been a while since my last [tips & tricks] post, but today I wanted to tell you what I do (not always, but from time to time) to keep my hands nice and soft.
Usually I do this on a Saturday or Sunday when my BF and I are having a movie night. I do this maybe once a month or so.
Starting off with washing my hands of course, rings and all other jewelry off and scrubbing my wet hands with one of my favorite p2 peelings. I really love the green one, but sadly they don’t sell it anymore so I had to get the new one as well.
After this is done I usually creme my nails with the nail wax from p2 and put the cuticle care on my cuticles as well as some nail food pomelo on my nails as well.
After that I take my The Body Shop – Mango Body Creme to thickly creme my hands. Why use that? Simply because my best friend gave it to me for my birthday and since I don’t use Body Creme why let it go to waste? It is also a great moisturizing hand mask.
I always put some plastic gloves on top (the ones you use to dye your hair) before I slide my hands into a pair of pink cotton gloves :P
I leave it like that for 2 hours or sometimes even while I am sleeping.
After removing the “mask” you are left with super soft hands that are well moisturized.
If you would like you could also cut off any access cuticle skin. I use my Wilkinson cutter for that.
and after that why not put on some more creme? :D
I hope that helped. I know it is a lot, but sometimes you gotta pamper you hands too.
Have a great night
