Tips from Our Spa Team

April 01, 2020

If you’re staying safe and sanitizing often, you may begin to notice that frequent hand washing can strip your skin of its natural oils, leaving your hands dry, flaky, and itchy, but don’t worry—the Barnsley Resort spa team has some special tips and tricks to help you stay safe, clean, AND soft.

Nail Oil Soak
We recommend trying a nail oil soak to moisturize and repair your delicate cuticles. Cuticle oil is preferred, but any oil you have at home will do. Simply massage a generous amount into your cuticles and leave it to soak for at least one hour.

Treatment for Dry Hands
Give your hands some much-needed TLC with our simple homemade scrub recipe. Simply mix two teaspoons of sugar with one teaspoon of oil and massage the scrub into your hands, wrists, and nails. Then, apply some cream, cover your hands with a clean pair of socks, and head to bed.

Hand Washing
Hot water and strong soap can dry out your hands, but it’s still possible to stay sanitary while keeping your skin soft. Always use lukewarm water and keep a hand cream or lotion by the sink to apply after every wash. Drinking water can also help you moisturize from the inside out!
