4 Easy Ways to Get Fab Hands & Nails for Summer:
- Make your own DIY at-home spa wax treatment! Try melting the following on medium heat in a glass jar placed in a medium-sized saucepan by placing 2-3 cups of water in the saucepan and bringing to a gentle boil. Mix: *half a small block [qtr. lb.] of yellow beeswax or 4 ounces of yellow beeswax pellets *1/4 cup of organic Olive oil *1/4 cup Argan oil >once the mixture is slightly melted, then place the heat on low for 3 mins. and remove from the heat and place in a large bowl. [optional] Add: *10 drops of Rose Hip oil & *10 drops of Sweet Almond oil immediately after removing from heat! Once a light, thin skin has formed on top of the wax mixture, you can carefully & slowly place ea. hand in one at a time and then gently remove. Repeat and remove again twice on ea. hand. Simply peel off to remove the wax treatment and do up to twice monthly for ultra smoothness and softness :)
- Utilize a hand scrub once weekly to polish away dead, dull skin to reveal youthful, smooth, & vibrant hands! One of my fav's: lauren b. Beauty Polishing Hand Scrub- make sure to check out our review below.
- Give a daily nail growth serum a try :) There are several options out on the market currently that actually bring real results and will help your nails not only grow, but a nail growth serum can strengthen them as well! One of my top picks: lauren b. Beauty Nail Growth Serum.
- Don't forget to treat your cuticles! Use a cuticle pusher to gently push back cuticles and then apply a drop of Argan oil directly to cuticles and lightly massage in with fingers. An affordable option I love that's around $3: Tim Nailcare Cuticle Pusher.
