Favorite beautiful hands tip of the day:  Instantly  camouflage fine lines and age spots. Add a pea-size amount of liquid foundation to your handcream.  Apply to the top of your hands.  This tip will help to even out your skin tone and smooth the look of wrinkles.

Tips from CG Nail Salon Regina

Beautiful Hands Tip:  Premature aging is most often caused by exposure to the sun. Use a moisturizer with an SPF of at least 15.  Apply to your hands twice a day.

Beautiful Hands Tip:  At least once a week,  exfoliate  the skin on your hands.   Exfoliating removes old skin and will help your moisturer penetrate deeper into your skin.

It is your face that probably gets noticed first, but your hands get the most exposure – the sun and the elements. Because of that exposure, your hands are what is going to display your age. By taking proper care of your hands you will be able to look your best, and maybe even look younger than you thought you could. So take care of your beautiful hands, no matter what your age, and enjoy the benefits.

Beautiful Hands Tip:  Stay Out Of Hot Water!    Continuous exposure to hot water can strip your hands of natural oils.  Use lukewarm water when you can and always wear rubber gloves when you are in scalding hot water.

Splurge On A Manicure    Every once in a while, getting your cuticles cleaned up and softened professionally is worth the few extra bucks. When your fingernails are shaped and polished they instantly look younger.  View more about Gel Nails or Shellac Nails.
