I need a helping hand – stat!
Driving to work today, I happened to look down at the steering wheel and the sight actually shocked me.
My once hydrated hands were so cracked and scaly, I wouldn’t have been surprised if people thought I was wearing snakeskin gloves. And on top of that, they looked like they belonged on a body of someone at least 10 years my senior.
And my nails – oh the horror! My cuticles seemed to have had a growth spurt overnight, extending a dry, peeling, totally unladylike film halfway up my nail bed. It was all I could do not to drive myself to the nearest manicure bar and demand an emergency appointment.
The minute I got to work I headed straight for the beauty cupboard for some hand and nail salvation and was lucky enough to get hold of the following:
Sally Hansen Hand Re-Surfacer with Micro-Crystals – a brilliant instant fix for scaly skin. Simply massage over your hands and they’ll be soft and smooth in minutes.
Hissyfit Handy Work – an ultra nourishing hand cream, choc full of aloe vera and vitamin E. Use after a hand scrub to allow the essential nutrients to really penetrate your skin.
Essie Apricot Cuticle Oil Massage – a godsend during the winter months! Massage into cracked cuticles and let the rich essential oils get to work sealing in moisture and repairing damage.
How are your hands and nails holding up this winter?
