I've been doing weddings for a long time now and I can honestly say that most people don't look back have many wedding day regrets - except not taking care of their hands and nails. Now I'm not saying that you have to go for a manicure or even paint your nails but a little bit of TLC to the skin on your hands and your cuticles can make the biggest difference, don't forget your your hands will be in a lot of the pictures.
A good hand-skin-care routine (that isn't a thing is it?) isn't hard to implement, some hand cream and a cuticle oil by the bed used nightly will make a huge difference. Even if its just a week before the wedding.
Here are a few of my favourites:
This is a cuticle butter. It smells delicious, it feels thick and really luxurious and it's perfect to put on before bedtime. Get those cuticles looking lush in no time!
Luxury it isn't but this oil is like heaven for your nails and cuticles. Regular use made my nails so strong and kept hang nails at bay. Highly recommend!
This hand cream is such a powerhouse. I keep it in my kit for anyone who need a bit of emergency TLC. So good for dry, rough feeling hands.
Yep this one is the luxury stuff! It smooths and makes you feel like you've had a manicure with very little effort. It sinks in like a dream and you'll want to use it all the time - not just at night!
Ok so not a cream or an oil but absolutely essential for great cuticles. You just need to gently push them back a couple of times a week and it will help reduce hang nails and bleeding cuticles.
