Keep Your Hand and Feet Preety

Sushma Khan, National Skin Trainer, Lakme Beauty Salon
gives top tips on getting best out of your manicure and
pedicure. By Priyanka Bhattacharya (Beauty Magazine)

Moisturise often:
It is important to use hand creams to rehydrate your hands after every wash. It is more important if you have used harsh detergents.

Foot creams help:
Use a rich cream on your feet every night to restore your skin, which suffers through the day. Always wash your feet as you reach home and before applying the lotion. This will also keep your nails free from any infection.

Get antiseptic:
Since humidity can cause infection so use an antiseptic soap or a foot-wash to wash away grime. Also before you wear shoes dust your feet with an anti-fungal power. This will also keep your feet smelling fresh.

Pro care:
Once in 15 days visit a professional manicurist and a pedicurist for complete treatment. Go for hydrating treatments complete with scrub, mask, moisturiser, massage Рthe works. At Lakm̩ we have what we call hand and foot facials that replicate the balancing facials that we offer customers.

Facials for hands and feet:
We have various types of hand and foot facials where we pamper your limbs so that you are mentally and physically relaxed. We use ingredients like floral extractions, orchid essential scrub, ceramide creams, and white tea moulding mask to treat different hands and feet problems.

Try reflexology:
When you are feeling exhausted and tired, and have aching limbs then foot reflexology session can be very beneficial. It is a holistic healing technique that improves lymphatic drainage and removes toxins within the body. It is highly relaxing. The moves also leave your hands and feet feeling lighter.

Just push, don’t snip:
When you are getting a pedicure and manicure ensure that the therapist does not cut your cuticles. Instead he or she should push it back and remove only the dead layer. That will avoid infections and keep nails healthy. In case you develop infection, please wait till it gets alright before going in for a professional session.

Care in between:
In between professional treatments do take care of your hands and feet. Besides regular cream massages, also do small at home hand and foot care. Remove nail polish, file and trim your hand and toe nails, then soak them in warm soapy water, add some lemon to it to have a lightening effect. Use a face scrub to slough off dead skin cells, then wash off and massage a good cream. You can also soak your nails in olive oil to strengthen them and give them a natural shine.
