Hi geeks...

Last night ,as i was putting on some solar oil on my nails and cuticles,and "locking " it in with some solar hand cream...it got me wondering...How many of you religously...and i mean this seriously put on your oil,and cream...and how many times..?

twice a day,3 times a day...or more!!??

Now winters coming,dryness is a real killer for the hands and nails...let alone the ageing process from sun exposure,and hands being in and out of water...do you moisturise your hands after you have washed them aswell??

Im always advising clients about the ageing process of the hands,and to NEVER let the nails,cuticles,or skin dry out:!:

So are you walking adverts of your job...after all what with ageing of the face and neck...so many of us miss the hands...and it should not!

After all,we should be passionate as about hand and foot care aswell as skin care!

If this needs to be moved to the skin forum thats fine...but as its hand and nail related i think this should be aimed at us nail geeks too...LOL:lol:

I'm a bit pants with hand cream, but I practically bath in my oil. I have one at home, one on my desk and one in my handbag!

Everytime I wash my hands I cream them after. I have handcream everywhere, handbag, car, upstairs, downstairs, at work, you name it.
A man once told me he can tell the age of a woman by looking at her hands.
By the way, check out some of the Celebs' hands, e.g. Madona...

Guess Im a Saint aswell then, like A1Diva, everytime I was I use Solar silk, I have a bit of OCD when it comes to washing my hands, and I cant stand the sight of dry crusty cuticles so they have a good oiling aswell, or if Im out then i'll slick some solar balm on!

I'm such a sinner...... I'm a saint in thought though - I regularly think ooh I'll oil my nails in a minute, or ooh I'll put some hand cream on..... but then I don't. I do use hand cream befor bed every night, so I'm not quite the devil incarnate!

Even when I've got enhancements on I can't be relied upon to use Solar Oil regularly (but I do tell my clients off if they don't:))

Total sinner, I can't stand cream between my fingers, or even toes.

That is the only bit I hate about mani/pedi that I have to do a massage with cream - ugh

I'm a bit of a failure, I try to use solar oil after I've showered and dried my hair but I nearly always forget.
But at night I lay in bed and put ooodles of oil on my nails and hands and that stops me feeling too guilty :)
