They are exposed to the elements, work hard all year round, and in the chilly winter months they really start to suffer, so luxury brand, Rituals, explains how give your hands the TLC they deserve this winter, and make chipped nails and dry cuticles a thing of the past with some of their favourite products …
This is a hand scrub based on rejuvenating ginseng and strengthening ginkgo biloba. The scrub is enriched with nourishing oils and leaves the hands instantly silky-soft and nourished. Daily use will also slow down the ageing process and give your hands a youthful look. Simply massage the scrub onto dry hands (do not forget the cuticles), rinse with warm water, and dry.
A hand balm which is again based on ginseng and ginkgo biloba to complement the Hand Therapy, this rich hand balm has been developed to soothe and repair rough, dry hands. Use it at night when the skin’s natural renewal process works eight times faster, and it will help your hands to keep their youthfulness.
The Nail Cuticle Treatment has base nourishing jojoba oils and vitamins A, E and F. This intensive nail cuticle treatment makes dry cuticles soft, supple and healthy. Apply it to unvarnished nails and cuticles, and massage carefully with fingers. The jojoba oil and vitamins will be absorbed by the nails and cuticles, while the massage will help to stimulate nail growth.
Exclusive to Rituals, this diamond-embedded nail file works faster and more effectively than any nail file available. It smoothes away rough nail edges and shapes nails smoothly, and the tough diamond grit steel will not wear out! Use the nail file at right angles to the nail, filing from the middle of the nail out.
Use Rituals’ Base and Top Coat for longer-lasting nail varnish with the added benefit of a base of natural minerals, enriched with a blend of powdered gemstones. It is a two-in-one product which helps nail varnish to last longer and retain a glossy, even coverage. Allow it to dry fully before proceeding with the coloured nail polish, and apply a top coat to seal and protects the colour. This will also camouflage mild grooves or unevenness in the colour application.
Rituals colour varnishes are easy to apply, and have rich and vibrant colour intensity. They are available in 13 colours. Paint one stripe of colour in the middle of nail then paint a stripe on the left, continuing to the right. This subtly focuses the colour in the middle of the nail. Remember to keep your hand steady. Don’t worry if it looks too thin. Re-dip your brush into the bottle before starting the nail so the colour is evenly distributed over all your nails. Let it dry completely before adding your last coat. Add another layer of nail polish if desired, depending on the shade of colour you want. Keep in mind that if you want a colour very similar to the bottle you should paint two coats. Let this dry.
Our corrector pen removes nail varnish mistakes fast and easily. The product comes with three extra pens, so if necessary, use a separate pen for each nail varnish colour. The pen-shaped tip makes for precision use. Gently apply the Nail Varnish Corrector pen to the skin or nail to remove misplaced nail varnish.
