Take good care of your hands

Are your hands giving away your age? Here’s how to keep these hard-working body parts healthy and pretty

‘Pure lemon juice is one of the finest things for the hands,’ Good Housekeeping reported in 1897, foreshadowing today’s fruit-acid craze.

 

Here are two more smooth moves:

  1. To avoid chapping, always dry your hands thoroughly.
  2. Keep rubber gloves in the kitchen and bathroom to protect your hands whenever you’re cleaning.

 

We recommend these:
