Winter is knocking on our doors with vigour. Skin is drying out and feels stretchy; hair is super dry and misbehaving. We actively take care of the skin on our face and our hair.
What about your hands and feet? The skin in those areas takes a beating all year long but the dry air and intense temperatures of winter are especially ravaging. They deserve a bit of love too.
Here are a few ways you can take care of them during winter.
1) Keep’em clean: Use a moisturising soap or body wash like The Body Shop Cocoa Butter Shower Cream to wash your hands and feet as dryness is the biggest issue in this weather. More importantly avoid using hot water as this just further leads to dry skin leaving it feeling scaly and stretchy.
2) Moisturise & do it more: During the day we wash our hands multiple times and it’s inevitable that your hands get really dry; get in to the habit of applying a light hand cream or lotion after each wash to avoid dryness. As the skin of your feet is tougher washing them, applying a good foot cream pulling on a pair of socks before sleeping will have you wake up with soft and supple feet. We recommend Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream and Scholl Foot & Nail Cream.
3) Exfoliate: Even though your hands can get away with a gentle scrub during your bath time; your feet need a little bit of extra attention. Be sure to exfoliate your feet weekly with a good foot scrub or use a basic file like the Vega Black Emery – Foot File to get rid or dry dead skin and leave your feet leaving smooth.
4) Mani & Pedi: There is nothing wrong with a little indulgence. The professionals push your cuticles back and trim nails, without causing damage. The massage during the sessions improves the blood circulation to your hands & feet. On the plus side paint your nails in a playful colour to lift your mood any time that you see them.
