  1. Moisturise – this is probably one of the most important ways to keep your hands healthy. Now more than ever, most people wash their hands more than ever before, and use hand sinitisers and anti bacterial gels to protect our hands when we’re out and about. Although these are obviously sensible health and safety measures, they can have a damaging effect on our skin, especially causing dry and damaged skin, so moisturising regularly is a must.
  1. Take care when washing your hands – we can’t avoid washing our hands regularly throughout the day but things to avoid are using hot water and certain soaps that are not necessarily good for your skin. It’s best to wash your hands throughouly with lukewarm water and use a moisturising soap with natural ingredients.
  1. Nails – keeping your nails in condition will also help with the overall health of your hands. If you are the kind of person who enjoys wearing nail varnish, or having long nails, that’s fine but make sure you trim and file your nails often and don’t let your nails dry out by wearing nail polish for long periods of time. 
  1. Showers and baths – just the same as when you wash your hands, after a bath or shower, your skin (inlcuding your hands) can become deprived of natural oils and this can cause damage. It’s always a good idea to apply some moisturiser and when possible avoid using excessively hot water. 
  1. Exfoilating – you may be used to exfoilating your skin in other parts of the body, but unknowingly neglect your hands. It’s important to extend your skin care routine to include exfoliation of your hands to remove dead skin cells and improve the overall texture of the skin. 
  1. Sun Protection – many people also overlook applying sunscreen to their hands as it may seem more important to protect other areas of the body from sun damage, however the delicate skin on our hands needs just the same amount of protection as the rest of our skin. 
  1. Household gloves – when cleaning and doing other household tasks, it’s usually inevitable to come into contact with certain chemicals or cleaning products that can be harmful. Wearing a pair of rubber gloves is a great way to protect your hands, even when washing the dishes!
  1. Winter gloves – especially if you’ve spent the summer months regularly moisturing and have achieved soft and supple skin, you don’t want your hands to suffer from the cold weather. Extreme temperatures can have a devasting effect on your hands so, as well as keeping you warm, grab an extra layer of protection with a decent pair of gloves this winter. 
  1. Manicures – you don’t necessarily need to visit a professional to give your hands a good manicure. If you have some basic tools at home, you can do the job yourself and perhaps treat yourself to a special manicure just for special occasions. 
  1. Healthy diet – you may be suprised to learn that even our hands can benefit from healthy eating habits. Drinking plently of water will natural hydrating your entire body, and getting some natural proteins and vitamins, especially vitamin E, will also give you gorgeous glowing hands.
