Without realising it our hands are a real age giveaway. They work so hard each day but dont often get the attention they need. It is a known fact that hands age at the same rate as the face so why do we spend all our time and money on the face and forget the hands? With winter around the corner they are really set to get a rough time from the cold so here is my one stop guide to hand health.
We all get dry hands and are quick to grab the hand cream but as with the skin of the face we still need to have a good exfoliate to remove the dry dead skin to allow the new skin to really flourish.
For this a tiny pea sized mount of buff will do the trick. Warm water allover the hands then a quick bit of buff, this doesnt need to take too much time out of your day but it is worth it!
For the speedy movers then a quick rub of perfect paws and you are all set.
However if time is a luxury once or twice a week we highly recommend the peel pads for the hands. These were primarily used in medi manicures, they are universal for the body, can be used on the hands or face even on the bottom cheeks!!! They will give a tingling sensation and a through exfoliate. I personally love these pads!
A final option if you really feel like a pamper is our review paraffin deal! For those of you unaware we are implementing an amazing new deal that if you give us a lovely review on either facebook, google or tripadvisor we will give you a choice of upgrade worth $35! Now one of these amazing upgrades is the hand paraffin and massage. The perfect upgrade for this time of year.
For those unaware of the paraffin wax treatment it is used to really lock moisture into the skin. It goes on as a warm liquid wax but then hardens and removes in one motion. The wax acts as an emollient, which helps trap moisture in the skin. Once the paraffin has been rubbed or peeled away, rough hands and dry cuticles are left soft and moisturised.
The heat of the wax additionally has a relaxing effect, helping calm and relieve stress in the same way a warm bath does. This combined with a hand massage you cant go wrong.
If you do happen to write a review, let us know you can book in for a hand or foot paraffin and massage upgrade. Not too shabby for a two minute review!
