Your hands and feet are probably the most used and abused parts of your body. To reward them for their hard work, here are a few ways you can make them feel special.
Remove old polish from your tips and toes.
Let your nails breathe by swiping a non-drying nail polish remover to take off old polish. This simple habit can refresh both your hands and feet instantly.
OPI Expert Touch Nail Polish Remover , P395
OPI is available at Rustan's.
Clean and buff your nails.
Get rid of debris by brushing your nails clean with a nail brush and going over them with a nail buffer to revive their natural shine.
Soak your tootsies.
Tired feet? Dip your feet in a warm, relaxing foot soak. You can create your own natural mixture by adding sliced oranges and lemons in a basin filled with warm water. The natural brightening ingredients of these citrus fruits will help loosen the dead skin, making your feet ready for exfoliation.
Scrub them good.
Your hands and feet also need a little help in skin surface renewal. Gently use a body scrub to slough off dead skin and allow your hands and feet to absorb the nutrients of any lotion or cream you apply. Your feet will feel baby soft after exfoliation.

Human Nature is available at Rustan's, Beauty Bar, and Landmark branches.
Use a hand cream regularly.
Besides doing this on your hand’s pampering day, consider making it a daily habit. Air-conditioning can dry your cuticles out, causing painful hang nails. Try this citrus hand cream to also energize your sleepy self.
