Beauty hacks: 4 hand-saving products you need this winter

Winter is here and with it the threat of a lot of pressure being put on our paws. If it isn’t unfavourable conditions causing dry and sensitive skin, it’s the need to have your nails on point for all the parties that the festive season brings.

Because we care, we at List for Life have gone and found you the solution to all of your hand-related worries this season. And we don’t just mean gloves.

1. Helmies Nail Protectors

One for the party season, protect your freshly manicured nails from daily wear and tear by wearing these nail protectors. Pop on the protectors about 15 minutes after applying your top coat so that you don’t have to wait all day for them to dry properly. You can go about your business with your nails untouched until you’re ready to take them off.

Make sure you’ve got a bottle of this by your sink for the winter. The gentle cleansing gel with a delicate scent of mandarin peel, rosemary and lavender will leave your hands feeling silky smooth and hydrated. Exactly what you need when you get back from tackling the ice-skating rink. If that’s what you’re in to.

A personal favourite, the scent of this hand cream will have you wanting to lick your own hands. But, since you’re not a cat and this isn’t edible, don’t do that. Just treat your hands to this delicious cream that will have you hydrated in no time, and will have everyone wanting to know where that smell is coming from – for once, not in a weird way.
