Recurring hand washes are already part of the current routine, adding to everything we already did with this versatile part of our body. Are you also dealing with the feeling of dryness, dehydration and tightness in your hands, including your nails? From HMB, where we are specialized and very involved in the care of hands, feet and nails, we could not put this matter aside and we have prepared a Complete Moisturizing Protocol so that there is no skin that falls into the uncomfortable lack of flexibility and hydration, nor weakens or break nails.
Have you read the label of the soap that has recently become the most used product in your bathroom? Yes, that pill next to the wash, or that bottle on the shower shelf that today, only today, you have already pressed 10 times. If the soap is not made with ingredients suitable for our skin type, this may be one of the aggravating factors of the aforementioned dryness of your hands. We must look for a soap that, of course, drags and removes dirt, but that includes among its active moisturizing agents, that cares for the cutaneous barrier of the skin and keep it soft and elastic. Ingredients like aloe vera gel or vegetable oils, as part of our cleansing formula, are welcome to counteract the aforementioned dryness. In HMB, our Berry Wash cleanser, allows that hand washing care, including in its formulation aloe vera, soothing, moisturizing and refreshing, together with extracts of red fruits, pomegranate and mango, which, in addition, provides antioxidant properties.
Once a week you should include a bath for our hands and a gentle exfoliation, since it will help us to eliminate dead cells, benefiting the natural regenerative capacity of our skin. Put your hands in a bowl with warm water infused with flowers, herbs, salts and essential oils, in addition to being a pleasure and a rest for body-mind, it allows our hands to rest for 15 minutes while receiving all the benefits that the blend in question can offer. Specifically, now that we are in the coldest season of the year, HMB calendula bath salts are an ideal option to give our hands - or our entire body if we use them in the bath - that master touch of softness, calm and well-being so desired. Calendula, Epsom and Dead Sea salts, coconut and almond oils and an exquisite vanilla aroma, make this blend an absolute delight that has us hooked on the whole team. To complete our Home Spa moment of the week, the ideal is to then apply an exfoliant that enhances the smoothness and repair of the skin. Remember to opt for gentle exfoliants, which include small granules of sugar, salts, bamboo, peels or seeds, which allow the removal of dead cells and improve the tone and general condition of the skin, without damaging the protective surface layer. Have you tried HMB's Mango Scrub? It contains Shea butter, almond oil and aloe vera, a foolproof nourishing trio, plus arrowroot powder and mango, berry and pomegranate extracts, making it an effective and gentle exfoliant simultaneously. After using it, you will discover the good tone that your skin now has.
At the time of Hydration, when we talk about hand hydration, we like long-lasting formulas that do not leave a greasy residue on the skin, which are easily absorbed, leaving the skin with a pleasant touch for hours. Counting on these tips is how we opted for the combination of aloe vera and hyaluronic acid, because it provides that intended juiciness without leaving a trace of residue on the skin. If, in addition, the changes in tone or the spots are beginning to be visible on your skin, the night version of this cream, with green tea and retinol, is the perfect company.
Finally, we will make a special mention of the care of the cuticles and nails, areas prone to the appearance of wounds and detached skins, breaks, fragility or weathered. One product to take into account is Cuticle Oil, the best remedy to avoid that uncomfortable loose skin bordering the nails, which easily become wounds. Cuticle oil can be used continuously, whether we have the manicure done or not, with or without color, since what it will do is nourish nails and skin in depth, with formulas based on nutrient-rich vegetable oils.
In HMB, both the Biphasic Oil and the Flower Cuticle Gel are two specific references to work on cuticles, the results of which are quickly noticeable with continued use. We encourage you to check the difference in your nails after 7 days of use. Finally, a Nail Base with moisturizing ingredients and Toxic Free will be our final touch that, in addition to avoiding cracks, breakage, yellowing or flaking of the nails, will provide a touch of shine, a symbol of care, cleanliness and detail. Our chosen one this time: the Moisturizing Base with Aloe Vera and Bamboo.
