During last month or so my skin felt dehydrated and dull despite applying moisturizing cream regularly. One of the skin experts at beauty shop suggested that I used an oil treatment. Among all her suggestions I chose Clarins orchid oil since I’ve heard a lot about it.
First thing that I’ve noticed is the smell, it’s absolutely lovely. It reminds me of a fresh spring bouquet. I apply two drops all over my face and neck every night and some mornings. Although the texture is a little bit thick -it isn’t watery at all- it absorbs by skin almost immediately. I noticed that it fairly minimizes pores on the T-zone in addition to giving my skin a tint of glow. This was a surprise for me since there was nothing on the description about it being pore-minimizing.
I love to apply it after washing my face when the skin is damp. The oil keeps the moisture in and makes my skin feel amazing. I’ve been using this for last three weeks and I love the result. My skin feels softer, more radiant and really hydrated.
If you have dehydrated skin or just need something to rejuvenate and nourish your skin this Clarins oil treatment is a perfect option.

Following the last post, Step by Step At-Home Manicure, here are a few more tips to take care of your hands:
For me the first and most important step is applying a hand cream. Especially during cold months because cold can be really cruel to the skin. This ACO mini derm is my current favorite. It’s really moisturizing without being oily. But if you prefer a little bit more oily hand cream the CCS cream is really good.
2- Use a right hand wash
Since we wash our hands multi times during a day, it is really important to pick the right one. There is no “the right choice”, there are lots of good products out there. Just pick one that serves your needs and avoid anything that dries your hands.
3- Wear gloves
I personally love wearing gloves. There was a time that it had become really annoying since I had to take them off every time I wanted to use my phone. Thankfully the problem is solved and lots of brands have touchscreen gloves. I like this Esprit one because it’s light yet warm.
The same reason that you must exfoliate your face and your body, applies to hands. I use ACO face scrub on my hands once a week. It does a great job while it’s really gentle to the skin. Scrubbing helps the skin to absorb the moisturizer better and keep your hands young.
Although these may seem really obvious you will be shocked how many people ignore them because of the very simplicity of these actions.
