Don't Forget Your Hands In The Summertime - They Need Moisture Too

Summertime puts your feet in the spotlight—finally, your tootsies are freed of their Ugg boot confines, painted, and allowed to frolic freely in the sand. But your toes' sudden exposure is no reason to neglect your hands. Think of all the things you put your paws through in the summer: spilled, sticky ice cream, toting overstuffed beach bags, paper cuts from all those trashy romance novels you're indulging in…


Show your hands a little warm-weather TLC, starting with an exfoliating sugar scrub. True Blue Spa's Just a Minute 60-second manicure scrub ($12) offers up instant gratification for gals who have better things to do than sit around and wait for their French manicures to dry (booor-ing!). Simply lather up with these citrus-scented, gritty granules, let the goop do its work for only a minute, and rinse away to find softer, smoother hands.

Follow up with a moisturizer formulated specifically for high-traffic skin like that on your palms. Thymes' Red Cherie hand lotion ($15) has a deliciously tart scent and isn't too greasy or thick. Slather it on after every hand washing—it should be the natural follow-up to soap if you want your mitts to stay happy.

If you're truly dedicated to your most useful appendages, consider slipping into a pair of moisturizing gloves before you hit the hay. Sephora's gloves ($8) are designed to work with your moisturizer of choice. While wearing gloves may put a pit of a kink in your nighttime social activities, it'll be worth it when you wake up with silky smooth hands everyone is going to want to hold.
