    Apply Lotion! Applying body lotion to the hands at least once a day leaves hands soft and feeling great. Experiment with different lotions to see which one feels the best for you. Try buying an unscented or aloe lotion to avoid smelling like a flower or a fruit, unless that's what you want!

    Exercise your hands! Just search "hand exerciser" online, and you've got a plethora of hand and wrist exercisers to choose from. Exercising and stretching your hands makes the fingers and the forearms strong, and can help ease the symptoms of arthritis and carpal tunnel.

    Take care of your nails! You don't have to paint them or attack them with a nail file, but investing in a pair of nail clippers keeps the nails manageable. Do not chew your nails! Putting aside the fact that that habit is gross, it leaves your nails jagged and ugly, and ingesting the bacteria trapped under your nails can make you sick. Break the habit and trim them with a nail clipper instead.

    Eat healthy! What does that have to do with your hands? Getting plenty of essential vitamins makes your skin and nails healthy. Eating too much junk food may result in cracked skin and discolored nails.


  • Sometimes your nails will be too strong for a little nail clipper to cut them. Don't be afraid to cut your nails with a toenail clipper instead; they're bigger and stronger than normal clippers.


  • Keep in mind that certain body lotions might give you a rash. If this happens, consult your doctor and discontinue use of that lotion.

  • Fingernail or toenail clippers
