Hand Moisturizing with Essential Oils

Oils are great for skin care since they have great moisturizing abilities. They condition the skin for a long period of time. Use essential oils as hand moisturizers for stronger nails and to protect the skin around it from getting damaged. While there are creams and lotions that hydrate the skin, there are some products that do not contain natural compounds that are effective in strengthening the nails.

Washing hands or dishes, and using soaps and harsh cleansing products causes the thinning of the cuticles. Enjoy the healthy growth of nails with essential oils as hand conditioners.

Infusing Essential Oils in Skin Care Products

Cleansers can also strip away the protective layer on the nails, which makes them more sensitive and prone to damage. Infusing essential oils in skin care products such as cleansers help in making the formulas gentler. They will not only provide vitamins and minerals vital for the health of the nails but also replenish the moisture on the cuticles.
