Current Hand Care Routine

At this time of year my hands always get dry but since I use my hands a lot, especially at work i've noticed they've needed a lot more care than normal. I thought it might be useful to share the little routine i've put together in case anyone else is suffering from dry hands.

I've found that the ends of my nails have been peeling easily so buffing them down every week or so has really helped. My old nail buffer was looking a bit past it's best so I picked up this one from Superdrug and it only cost £1.

Since my nails have been chipping so easily i've been skipping paint them and just sticking with using a clear polish. This is Essence Triple Care Polish which is a clear polish but is also meant to help strengthen the nails. After using it for a few weeks I have noticed a difference in my nails looking healthier and for the price you can't go wrong.

My cuticles have been the worst recently so i've started using oils on them to stop them being so dry and flaky. I borrowed this vitamin e oil from my Mum which works really well and the fact that it is packaged as a nail polish makes it easy to apply. I have since picked up a bottle of almond oil which i've been using and really has helped to soften all around the nails. The hand cream i've been using is the Garnier Intensive 7 Days Hand Cream which works so well. It feels very moisturising and sinks in fairly quickly. 

I try and do the first two steps every week and then use the oil and hand cream every night. I definitely have noticed a difference in my hands with doing this and all the products i've been using are very affordable which is even better.

What products do you use to keep your hands in good condition?
