5 Tips To Get Soft Hands

 

My friends often ask me how they can keep their hands soft all year long. In fact, there are several factors that you have to consider if you want to have smooth hands. Today I am sharing 5 simple tips you can easily implement to your daily routine, starting now!

1. Use Gloves

A simple tip to begin with would be to protect your hands from detergent and other chemicals that can threaten your hands. Do not forget to put on gloves when you are washing the dishes or the car for instance.

2. Be SPF Wise

Just like any part of your body, you should take time to protect your hands with sunscreen. It will prevent brown spots from popping out.

3. Moisturize Smartly

If, just like me, you cannot remember to moisturize your hands everyday, you have two options: put a hand cream in every handbag you have OR use your daily skincare routine as a reminder. What I usually do is that, when putting on my night cream, instead of washing my hands to get rid of the residue, I apply the bit that is left on top of each hand. That way, there is no waste of the product and my hands are insured to always be moisturized.

4.  Minimize Using Hand Sanitizer

At some point in my life, I noticed that my hands where getting dryer than usual and it was not a coincidence. What happened was that I took the (bad) habit of preferring hand sanitizers to soap, so I started to carry it around in my bag. Metro? Sanitizer. Grocery shopping? Sanitizer. Toilets? Sanitizer. Don’t make the same mistake! In other for hand sanitizers to be effective, they need to contain at least sixty percent alcohol. As a result, when you use hand sanitizers, it dries out your skin and makes it harsh. When soap and water are not readily available, seek organic alcohol-free sanitizer.

5. Use Ghee

In Ayurveda (traditional Indian medicine), Ghee can be used as a natural skin moisturizer. You just need 10 ounce of ghee and some water. Mix the ghee with the equivalent amount of water in a bowl for 5 minutes. Add more fresh water and continue mixing. Repeat the procedure as many times as possible (on average, 20 times ). When you’re done, apply it on your hands and leave it for 10 minutes before washing with warm water.…

Easy Workouts You Can Create In Your Daily Routine

Summer is almost gone and, with it, your promises to get fit and healthy for the upcoming fall. If you are in the same case as me, you will appreciate the mini workouts I have listed here for you. They are especially made for people who do not have time to regularly commit to a specific workout. In other words, here are four daily occasions in which you can transform your routine into an efficient workout!

1. Use Your Walls

Try to use the time you spend on the phone with your friends or brushing your teeth to do wall squats. Just stand against a wall with your legs extended, then bend your knees and slide down the wall until you reach a seated position. Hold the position as long as you can. This will tone your butt and legs, but make sure your back is flat against the wall!

2. Make The Most Out Of The Elevator Time

Let’s be honest, elevator time is often the occasion to scrutinize people, but it is rarely the moment we choose to workout. Well, that being said, it does not mean that it is impossible.

Indeed, toe raising is an easy workout you can implement in your routine, as it will tone your calves without making you sweat. What’s more, you just need minimum space to practice!

3. Drop Your Car And Use Your Feet!

It sounds simple but too many people use their car or even public transportation when they could actually walk.

For example, walk to your job once a week. When you bring your kids to the park, do not take the car. Consider it as an occasion to have some quality time with your kids! It will also benefit your health by providing you with some fresh air!

4. Sex, You’re Simply The Best

Let’s keep the best for the end. We all know that when we have sex with our beloved husband, boyfriend, or a friend with benefits, we burn calories. According to a study, making love burns almost as many calories as a 30-minute jog. So consume and enjoy without moderation!…
