THE MASSAGE:
Massage your hands at night for at least five minutes to let the goodness of the moisturiser soak in. For very rough hands, mix your moisturiser with a bit of Vaseline so that they are protected all through the night.
When you are washing dishes, gardening or carrying out any chore that allows your hand to interact with chemicals, grease or dirt, ensure that you are wearing rubber gloves to protect your hands.

MY TIPP: Massage your hands with Coconut butter which nourish aswell your nails. Take five minutes after you have been working on the computer and massage your wrists.

 

THE FOOD:
What you eat is very important. Proteins, Vitamin B, Vitamin E supplements should be a part of your diet to get healthy, strong nails and to keep your hands supple and soft. Lots of water and a daily glass of almond milk are extras that help your obverall skin glow.

MY TIPP: When working in the kitchen with food, like for example cutting avocados, squeezing lemons, making a dough use your hands and have the waist of what ever you are cutting massaged into your nails and hands.
