spa handsThis weather wreaks havoc with our hands – dry, rough and chapped in places. And while hand creams work – how many of us have five minutes to let it sink in?

It’s always the same, put some yummy smelling cream on and within minutes, you are making food, taking someone to the toilet, changing a nappy, stroking a dog… it’s hopeless.

So here’s a little tip. Before you go to bed, smother your hands in your favourite cream and put on a pair of gloves… any gloves. Obviously, there can be no rolling about ladies; so make sure it’s a night that you and partner are tired! The next tip is to use a little bit of massage oil – and let that sink in. In fact, why not massage someone and make the whole experience fun.

If you do this for a week, you will notice a big difference.
