You take all the necessary measures to ensure that your face is clean, your body is healthy, and your skin is great, right? But you often ignore taking care of your hands and neck. So, here is a complete guide to take care of the most ignored parts of our body. Read on to find out!
For your hands
Keep a bottle of good moisturizer in your bag, so that you can use it as required. Also, keep one in your medicine cabinet, so that every time you wash your hands, you can moisturize them to prevent dryness. You can also use coconut oil, olive oil, or petroleum jelly instead of a moisturizer.
Exfoliation is good for your skin. But like facial skin, you need to ensure that you don’t overdo it for your hands and end up making them dry. You can use a mild natural exfoliate made of coconut or olive oil, sugar, and lemon juice.
3. DON’T FORGET THE NAILS
While moisturizing your hands, make sure you do the same for your nails as well, especially the cuticles. Those who apply any facial serum can just apply it over their nails and hands, instead of wiping off the excess.
4. OPT FOR A HOME MANICURE SESSION
You no longer have to spend your money on a manicure at the salon, since you can also do it yourself at home. Simply soak your hands in a mixture of warm water and mild soap, and use a soft brush to clean your nails. You can also cut and shape your nails by yourself. Once you’ve cleaned and dried your hands, slather on moisturizer and massage it onto your hands and nails. When your nails soak up the moisturizer, you can apply any shade of nail polish you want.
For your neck
For your neck, you can use the same moisturizer that you apply on your face. However, if you want to use oil, then opt for lighter oils, such as olive, rose, or eucalyptus. If you’re using coconut oil, then use only a small quantity. Apply it in an upward direction, and never overdo it.
Only use mild exfoliators on your neck. You can make a natural exfoliator of milk and almond powder. Make sure you exfoliate in an upward direction, using gentle strokes.
