The final and most important stage of a manicure is hand care. The hands have a lot to cope with, especially from outside influences. Handling aggressive cleaning agents and changing weather patterns make the hands rough and thin, and can even cause deep cracks. This means that the skin on your hands ages five times more quickly than the skin on the rest of your body. This is why proper care is extremely important. Of course, prevention is always better than cure! Make sure you massage your hands well when applying a hand cream or hand mask. This will stimulate the blood flow.
