The cold of winter and dry air take both their toll on your hands! Here are a few suggestions for treating the most common problems. It’s time to fight back with an iron hand… in a velvet glove, of course!
Your priority: treating dry nails
Are your cuticles are dehydrated and constantly peeling? Are your nails split, brittle or ridged? It’s time to give them a truly nourishing treatment!
Choose an oil specially designed to moisturize the cuticles: apply it every night at bedtime to restore the suppleness of the skin. For a more complete treatment, choose serums or creams designed to revitalize both hands and nails.
Your priority: an intensive hydration cure for your hands
Low temperatures, repeated hand washing and dryness caused by heating produce a dangerous cocktail, which can leave hands extremely dry, chapped or cracked.
Choose a shock treatment!
- During the day, choose a rich, highly nourishing cream, in a compact format: you can leave the tube near your computer screen, and use it every time you wash your hands.
- In the evening, make sure to apply a good amount of cream before going to bed: it will have time to penetrate your skin deeply while you sleep. For an even more intensive cure, slather your hands with your favourite protective treatment and slip on a pair of protective gloves. The heat released by your body during the night will generate moisture, which the insulating effect of the gloves will turn into a moisturizing solution.
