Beauty tips for You

“It's beauty that captures attention,and its personality that captures heart"

Follow these easy tips to make your hands look gorgeous:

Clean your hands. Grab a toothbrush and squirt some soap on it, then rub it in. Leave it next to you. Wash your hands in warm water, not cold or scalding. Use a good quality soap. Rub the soap everywhere: your wrists, in between your fingers, and the area around your nails. Wash the soap off, and then use the soapy toothbrush to scrub the actual nail and the dirt under it. Then make small circular movements around your whole hand with the toothbrush. This gets the hand really clean and makes dead skin disappear. If you have nail polish on, remove it before washing your hands.

Gently pat your hands dry

Use a clean, preferably fluffy, towel. Don't make them starch dry; leave them a little moist. Don't put on any lotion or clip your nails just yet.

Massage your hands

Search for something to massage your hands with. Almost anything will do: massaging lotion, olive oil, yogurt, warm milk, even lemon juice. Rub a little on your palms and use it to massage the whole hand. Massage slowly; don't rush. Just relax and make sure you actually enjoy this step—that's pretty much the whole point. Rinse off whatever you used with warm water. If you used olive oil or something that can be rubbed in, just leave it in—it'll treat your skin. If you used a lot of yogurt or milk, wash away a little bit and rub in the rest. Don't scrub your hands and wash them thoroughly, completely washing away what you used to massage your hands (that'll make them feel tight and dry).

 Rub in some lotion

You might want to use face cream if you want. Some good brands are Sorbolene (it's great on dry and peeling skin), Dermaveen (again, for dry and peeling skin), and the new Vaseline range. Do it properly: don't slather on the whole lot, but use enough to really get deep down.

 Trim your nails

Thoroughly clean the undersides of your nails before clipping the nails: make sure that there isn't any dirt left. It's best to keep them short, which looks neat and is easier to manage. Try to cut all your nails the same length and shape. If you need to, file them afterward. Rub in some cuticle cream on each nail. If you don't have any cuticle cream, use lip balm instead. Leave the cream in for twenty minutes.

 Paint your nails

Grab your favourite colour if you're going out. If you're not going out or doing anything special, just use a clear gloss. Your nails really need a break from strong nail polish, or they may get weak or turn yellow. Some nice colours for your hands would be a pearly pink, deep red, or a natural colour. Metallic, glittery and shiny nail polish is very cool too. If you're painting your nails using an actual colour, make sure to sandwich the colours between a thick coat of clear polish, to protect and add shine. How many layers you paint is totally up to you, and depends on the thickness of the polish. Once you're done, wait for your nails to dry. Be careful. If you can, slip on a pair of gloves to lock in all the moisture and protect your hands for a little while. Do this repeatedly if necessary for best results.
