Getting your hands ring ready

14.5.14

Following on from last week's post about my current hand heroes, I've teamed up with Pandora today to give you a few more tips on how to keep your hands in the best condition.  They're also launching an exciting new #MyRingsMyStyle campaign, with the chance to win £500 of Pandora rings for the best shot of how you stack your Pandora rings.  I've got a pinterest board full of ringspiration (new phrase right there), so this campaign is right up my street!
The hottest trend in jewellery right now is ring stacking. The beautifully designed Pandora rings are ideal to adorn your fingers with, but before you pick your favourites from the fabulous choice on offer, you need to make sure your hands are deserving of such lovely treasures. After all, they’re about to become the focal point of your summer look.

Exfoliate
Your hands are the hardest working part of your body so they’re prone to dryness and flakiness. Your usual body scrub may be a bit harsh for the delicate skin in this area so treat yourself to a gentle hand exfoliator and use it a couple of times a week to keep your hands looking smooth and silky.

 Moisturise
You don’t need to spend a fortune on hand cream but you do need more than one tube so that you get into the habit of using it regularly. If you’ve got one by your bed, one in your handbag and one by the kitchen and bathroom sinks, you’ll soon get into the habit of keeping your hands soft, nourished and looking great.

Shield
We all know the importance of using a good SPF in the summer, even if it’s not particularly warm, however we often overlook our hands. Like our faces, our hands are one of the most vulnerable parts of our body in the ageing process, so if you’re going to be out and about, make sure you apply sun cream on your hands to keep them youthful and wrinkle free.

Protect
Unfortunately housework is a necessary evil for all of us but harsh cleaning products and hot washing-up water are the enemy of smooth hands. If you find a good quality pair of rubber gloves that fit properly, it won’t feel like a chore to put them on each time duty calls on the domestic front.

Manicure
With the explosion of nail bars on the UK’s high streets over the past few years, it’s never been more affordable to make a weekly manicure part of your grooming routine. If you’re bored of the same old pinks and reds, check out #MyRingsMyStyle on twitter to see Jameela Jamil’s gorgeous love heart manicure, toughened up with a monochrome colour scheme.

 The ring stacking trend is here to stay, so once your hands are in tip top shape, it’s time to indulge in it.

  1. Great post, my hands are always in need of a little tlc so it's always my first post of call when I'm having a pamper session. I usually use a barrier cream like Soap and Glory's Endless Glove to protect them throughout the day. xxx

  2. I started exfoliating my hands regularly a few months ago and it's the best thing I've ever done for them. They're so much smoother and softer. Great post! xx

  3. It's so important to have nicely groomed hands, I think you can tell a lot about a person just by looking at their hands! xx

  4. I never thought of exfoliating my hands, but that of course makes perfect sense!
