Certain parts of your body make a strong first impression; good teeth, good hygiene, and a good handshake. If you have recently had hand surgery to help fix a fracture by Dr. George Philip Smith, you know just how good it feels to finally be able to give a good handshake without wincing in pain. To take this first impression one step further, we have created a guide of three ways that you can make your hands smoother and more beautiful. Read on to learn more.
This time of year is the time of year when your hands become chapped, dry, and even bleed due to the cold weather. To help keep your hands as soft as possible and to give a soft handshake, make sure that you are using a thick moisturizing cream morning, night, and after you wash your hands. By locking in the moisture, a moisturizing cream with ingredients like shea butter in it will keep your hands feeling as smoothe as ever.
Manicures are typically associated with females, but they can be done on men as well— just usually without the polish. By cleaning up your cuticles and filing down your nails into a good shape, a manicure can transform your hands from drab to fab in virtually no time at all.
You may not realize it, but your hands receive a lot of sun exposure and damage by doing everyday tasks like driving. To help protect your hands from sunspots and damage, make sure that you are applying a sunscreen on them before you go outside. As a suggestion, get a moisturizing sunscreen so that you can kill two birds with one stone.
Now that your hands are in working condition make sure that you are taking the proper care of them by moisturizing, getting a manicure, and applying sunscreen. With smooth, beautiful looking hands, you’re sure to make a lasting impression the next time you shake hands with someone new.
