Gardening is a terrific hobby. There are so many benefits to gardening such as an improved mood, improved mental health, a healthier body, stronger muscles and beautiful skin. Not to mention the fun of spending time in a beautiful garden and the knowledge you gain by gardening. The only downside to gardening is the toll that the work has on your hands. Digging, planting and cutting is terrible for your skin and for your nails. Chipped nails and scars on your skin is a common part of your everyday gardening expedition. But gardening doesn’t have to result in ugly hands if you only take good care of your hands while you garden.
Wear gloves when gardening
Wearing gloves is one of the best ways to keep your hands safe, soft and stain free. Look for a set of breathable but thick gardening gloves and always wear these while you are doing garden chores, especially if you plan on doing tough pruning and digging jobs.
A tip to keep your nails clean
The feel of dirt between your fingers as you plant glorious new flowers is something you simply cannot miss out on. If you want to enjoy the raw feel of your garden then simply scratch lumps of soap underneath your nails before you start gardening, that way no dirt will get stuck underneath your nails, your nails will be stronger and will remain stain free.
Wash your hands with sugar scrub
Wash your hands with sugar scrub after each gardening session so you can scrub away dirt without exposing your delicate skin to extreme cleaning chemicals.
File your nails every day
Regular filing keeps your nails beautiful but you should always only file your nails one way because filing vice versa causes your nails to weaken.
Keep a butter lotion at every tap
Add a hand lotion or butter lotion to your hands after every wash and as frequently as possible. The lotion rehydrates your skin, keeps your hands soft and prevents your cuticles from tearing in.
Wear sun tan lotion
You should wear sun tan lotion on your hands whenever you are going out and especially when you are planning on spending a lot of time outdoors.
Put a Moti Ferder on a finger
If you are still a bit shy about your hands then you can always add a bit of sparkle to brighten up your skin and to raise the value of your hands dramatically, after all even older hands look timeless and classic with an expensive piece of jewelry displayed on them. A ring by Moti Ferder is just what you need to make your gardener hands look stunning. Moti Ferder is a jewelry designer and director of the jewelry brand Lugano Diamonds. Many believe that his jewels are going to be one of the most infamous and sought after brands soon and any of his pieces will be a great investment especially if you want to wear something of value that you can pass down from generation to generation soon.
