quick tip for softer hands from skyy hadley

With the temp as cold as its been, we're starting to agree that this winter might be a majorly frigid one.

Skyy Hadley, owner of As “U” Wish Nail Spa, has a great tip to make sure that we don't neglect our hands and tootsies during the chillier months.

Try using a petroleum-based product such as Aquaphor.

Products that are petroleum based counteract the drying effects on skin during cold temperatures, says Skyy.

For an at-home version of her special spa treatments, she suggests slathering one of these products on hands and feet, then covering them with a plastic baggy (use small for hands and large for feet).

Soak your know covered hands and feet in a comfortably moist hot towel for five minutes. The heat will help the moisturizer penetrate the skin.

Then, simply remove the baggies, wipe off the excess product, and massage the rest into your hands and feet for soft, smooth, supple skin.

Love the part about using a moist hot towel to make the product penetrate...honestly never thought to do that.

If you're in the NJ area, be sure to look up Skyy at the As "U" Wish Nail Spa. Head on over to asuwishnailspa.com for more details.
