Pretty Hands and Feet
Wendy Gough

Many women are meticulous with their hair and makeup, but end up neglecting their nails. Hands say so much about a person, making proper care a true necessity. With just a few minutes of maintenance every day, your hands will always be smooth and soft.

* Exfoliate and moisturize your hands every day. There are many effective hand creams on the market. Look for one that contains Alpha Hydroxy Acids. Sally Hansen makes a wonderful, inexpensive cuticle softener and exfoliator. Apply and massage into cuticles and nails both morning and night. * Dragon lady nails are out! Opt for shorter, rounded nails. * File nails straight across, gently rounding the sides. * Apply clear or nude colored polish for a neat, well kept look. * To whiten nails, a little household bleach works beautifully. However, don###t use this trick too often as it can weaken the nails. KEEP YOUR TOES TERRIFIC, WITH THESE IDEAS * Use a pumice on your feet every day while in the shower. Moisturize immediately after showering to keep your feet smooth and soft. * For tired, aching feet, fill a basin with a few drops of peppermint oil, a few drops of rosemary, and a teaspoon of almond oil. Soak for 10-15 minutes, pat dry and massage with your favorite lotion. Invigorating! * Use the same hydrating facial masks on your hands and feet that you would your face. By giving your hands and feet the attention they need, you###ll be ready for all the skin baring summer styles!
