Get Glowing Hands

Just as our face needs proper cleaning and scrubbing, our hands too need proper care every day. Dead skin cells camouflage the natural skin tone of hands and need a regular scrubbing routine to get rid of these dead cells. A mild cleanser or a body wash is an excellent product to rub the skin while bathing. Once the hands are cleaned off the superior dirt, make sure to scrub it with either a homemade preparation or a market bought scrub. Do this at least thrice a week to reveal soft and glowing hands.

Using ordinary soap laden with harsh chemicals to wash hands is not sufficient. Regular washing with harsh chemicals may strip of the hands of its natural oil content. Instead, opt for a mild hand cleanser that cleans gently without making your hands dry.

Using a fairness pack on hands would yield soft and lightened hand complexion. Fairness packs can be made easily with ingredients available at home.

Moisturising is an important aspect of skincare. Dry hands hamper the complexion of the skin. Make sure your hands are always moisturized with a mild moisturizer every night before retiring to the bed.

Sunscreen is as important to the hands as it is to the face. Use a sunscreen with SPF 15 or more on the hands. This will retain the skin tone of your hands and would not cause them to burn in the sun.

Waxing is a great way to remove the accumulated dead skin on the hands. It not only removed unwanted hair but also reveals a fresher skin tone. Always opt for mild waxing ingredients such as wax strips treated with Aloe Vera or sugar and honey wax. Though hair removal creams also work well, they may darken the skin with prolonged use.

Like it is important to remove makeup from the face, it is imperative to remove makeup from the hands too. Use a mild makeup removing cream or baby oil to remove any traces of foundation before hitting the sack.
