I suffer from quite dry hands and if I don’t make a real effort my cuticles get flaky too, especially in the winter months and so I promised myself that this year I would take better care of them and I thought I would show you some of the products I’ve been using over the past few weeks.
Bath & Body Works Island Nectar Pocket Bac – This is me trying to hold on to summer, well the smell of it at least. This has a really fruity scent. It reminds me of sipping cocktails on the beach. I always have hand sanitiser on my bedside table and put it on before applying hand cream. These are really handy and I hope that Bath & Body Works open a store in the UK soon.
Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream* – I use this if my cuticles are particularly dry or need a little TLC. This is so nourishing and helps cracked skin. It performs overnight miracles. I do use it on my lips too, its a wonder products it really is.
balance Me Rose Otto Hand Cream* – This has such a calming scent and its perfect for before bed. I massage it in to my hands and it leaves them very soft and not at all greasy. The cream is very light and easily absorbed its is just lovely and very soothing for sensitive skin
Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Creme – This is quite the cult product, Ive had this tin for a couple of years now and it hardly looks like I have used it. This lemon butter lasts forever. Mine will need replacing soon as it is starting to dry out but this is another product that smells lovely. If you like citrus scents then you will like this. I use this all the time and take it when I fly too and my nails get very dry. I have this tin sat on my desk and use it after I wash my hands just to make sure my cuticles don’t dry out.
Avon Cuticle Conditioner – I use this when I take my nail polish off to really hydrate and condition my cuticles. I brush it around my nail and over my cuticles. It dries quickly and seems to be helping keep my cuticles in good condition.
Avon Pearl Shine – Not really a product for hand care but on those days I don’t want to wear a colour on my nails but want them to look healthy, I use this. It leaves them with a pearly shine thats really subtle and pretty. It looks nicer than just wearing clear polish.
What do you use to keep your hand looking hydrated and moisturised?
