Over the past year, the skin of our hands has been put to the test. Large amounts of disinfectants as well as frequent washing did not help to moisturize this part of our skin. The skin became chapped, cracked. In this article, we would like to introduce you to the idea of ​​hand care treatments and suggest how to do them yourself at home.

HISTORY OF A SPA FOR HANDS

Do you remember the photos in the pages of history books showing aristocrats? The women’s hands and forearms were adorned with long silk gloves. Their task was to protect delicate and noble skin from the sun and other external factors such as wind or frost. It prevented discoloration and accidental cuts. Women’s skin was supposed to be light, well-nourished and delicate – with blue lines of blood vessels.

Today, the idea of ​​a hand spa is primarily associated with well-groomed nails. In this context, we advise you to go back to your roots. Maybe we do not suggest wearing silk gloves in the summer, but appropriate care treatments will surely make your hands a showpiece.

WHY IS IT WORTH TO MAKE A SPA FOR YOUR HANDS?

Hand care treatments have invaluable properties. If you combine such a treatment with a pleasant massage, you will not only support blood flow in the blood vessels, but also feel the relaxing effect of a moment just for yourself. If you want to take care of the spiritual aspect and bring some magic to this treatment, take advantage of the benefits of the 21st century: turn on your favorite music or sounds of nature, take care of warm, dimmed lighting and essential oils. This way you will stimulate all your senses. You will take care not only of the visual aspects, but most of all you will help to keep the balance in your interior.

NOURISHING BATH

Start the treatment with a nourishing bath. You can do it by using our BOSQIE herbal blends: soothing – moisturizing or relaxing and nourishing. Just follow the instructions: pour 5 scoops of herbs into 1 liter of water and simmer, covered, for a few minutes. Filter the decoction and pour it into a bowl of warm water. Then dip your hands in the inspiring aroma of nature.

If, on the other hand, you want to prepare such a bath with fresh fruit, we recommend the “lemon lemonade” bath. We named it because of the ingredients. You need: ripe lemon and a spoonful of honey. Pour everything with warm water and mix. Lemon will help get rid of discoloration, while honey will moisturize and envelop your delicate hands.

Another recipe for a nutritional bath is the “milky chamomile” bath, for which you need 1 cup of warm milk and 1 cup of chamomile infusion. It will also help your hands to rest and nourish and moisturize them.

HAND PEELING

After the bath, it is worth making a peeling. For this purpose, use our Peeling – Pepper and Sea Buckthorn or Horse Chestnut and Hops. Prebiotic peeling contains natural crystals of finely ground pumice, which effectively exfoliates dead skin cells, nourishes and tones dry and irritated skin, giving it a feeling of smoothness. In addition, it is the perfect moment for a more intense hand massage. Make regular movements from the center of your hand to the tip of your fingers and feel all your muscles slowly relaxing. Remember that the massage should not last longer than 10 minutes. This is just the preparation of the skin for it to absorb intensive nutrients in the next steps.

HAND MASK

Surprised? So far, have you only used masks on your face? It’s time to change that. Your hand skin will be grateful to you. We suggest that you prepare such a mask yourself – after all, it’s a home spa. For this, use oil and egg yolks. Mix about 3 tablespoons of warm olive oil with the egg yolk. Put it on your hands and cover them with foil. Keep the mask applied in this way for 15 minutes.

PREBIOTIC END

After washing off the remnants of the mask, it’s time to properly complete the care ritual. This means that you should lubricate your hands with a suitable hand cream. We recommend you our Natural Prebiotic Hand Cream – Pepper and Willow Bark or Apricot and Basil. The prebiotic end of care is a truly royal ritual. Prebiotics contained in the cream will protect your skin against external factors, and the microbiome naturally present on your hands will be able to develop properly. This is a complement to all the previous stages, which we do not recommend avoiding.
