Hand and nail care tips

Here are a couple of hand care and nail care tips I often use and I hope the tips could be helpful in case you are hoping to look after your hands and nails. A couple of the care tips include using a nourishing hand cream in the day time or when you feel your hands need some, using coconut oil on your nails and cuticles to help to nourish and moisturise them, giving the nails on your hands and feet a careful trim quite regularly and using a nail polish if you would like to, in a colour you like πŸ•ŠπŸŒΈΒ I also noted a couple of nail care tips included in the Beauty Guide book by Dr Libby, including a couple of nutritional and self care tips to help to look after your nail health.Β
