Beat Winter Dryness

I decided to repost a post that I did several weeks ago. I posted it right before I joined the Polish Bloggers Network and my site traffic increased. So, I don't think many of you saw this anyway, LOL....

SO, I have some natural nail care tips for all my natural ladies.......We all know that our skin can become really dry during the winter, so I have a few tips and products that can help you beat the winter skin blues.

Because there is less moisture in the air during the winter, our skin can become really dry and our hands and feet tend to suffer the most. Our cuticles can become especially dry and they need to be cared for between manicures during the winter. Here are some cuticle care tips that you can do at home:

1.) Once a week, soak your cuticles in warm water with a couple drops of cuticle oil (I LOVE Sally Hansen's cuticle oil with vitamin E) AND apply directly to the cuticle. (DO NOT USE SOAP, it dries your cuticles out) After soaking your nails, use a cuticle pusher to push those bad boys BACK!!

 2.) Once a week, exfoliate your hands (True Blue Spa "Just a Minute 60-sec Manicure Scrub from Bath&Body Works will do the job), this removes the dead skin cells from your hands and allows you to apply the moisturizer directly on your fresh clean skin, instead of on dry, dead skin cells.

3.) Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize!! I love True Blue Spa's "Look Ma New Hands" from Bath&Body Works. Its ingredients feature paraffin oil, which helps keep hands/skin super moisturized and protected.

4.) Lastly, we can't forget our feet!  Like most, I tend to slack off of my salon pedicure regimen during the winter because my feet aren't exposed. But this doesn't mean that you can't keep up with grooming them at home. Even if you don't give yourself a full pedicure at home the least you can do is exfoliate and moisturize! Try True Blue Spa "Toe the Line" for your scrub and "Shea it Isn't So" as a moisturizer...they work wonders together! Scrub weekly or bi-weekly; moisturize daily!!

As you can see I live by Bath & Body Works True Blue Spa products. They work great and are inexpensive. I quickly learned that there is no point in spending a fortune on exfoliants and moisturizers when these products do the same thing, and in my opinion, do it better!

I have the "Just a Minute", "Toe the Line", and "Shea it Isn't So". I also have their "Shea Cashmere" hand cream that was recently on sale like it was going out of style (which by the way... it better not) that stuff feels amazing.
