Occasionally or daily, we’re all in love with pampering skincare routines whenever time permits. And, with new products being launching every day, it’s hard to keep a tab on your savings. The truth is, for most of us spending hard earned moolah on skincare translates to facial care. Sheet masks, hydrating essence, emulsions… you get the drill. But, are you paying attention to the skin on your hands and feet? They’re constantly exposed to the sun, rain and dust. Wait… did we mention aging and dryness affects them as much as it does your face? We think it’s time you’re introduced to the pampering necessity of Hand and Foot Masks.
Why do you need Hand & Foot masks?
Did you know that people can guess your age just by looking at your hands? Needless to say, the thought of wrinkly hands is not pleasant. And, don’t even get us started on cracked feet. If you think the solution is a regular mani-pedi session, you’re mistaken (sadly). Mani-pedis take care of your cuticles more than the skin around them and of course, they are not cost-effective. But don’t fret just yet.
Think of hand and foot masks as skin saviours for your hardworking hands and feet. Now, they may not be as much in demand as face masks but that doesn’t mean you don’t need them. These marvels moisturise, hydrate and transform your hands and feet into soft, cushiony, velvety wonders. Contrary to popular belief, they aren’t messy either. Put on your gloves and socks and get set for a spa-like experience at home. While you’re at it, don’t forget to trim those cuticles and apply a coat (or two) of some delish hue from the Nykaa Matte Nail Enamel
