Our hands are exposed to the worst treatment throughout the day. From chemicals in the household products to harsh detergents, not to mention the weather and constant washing, all strips the natural moisture off your hands and make them feel dry. A hot oil manicure will give your hands a much needed respite. Oils such as Vitamin E oil, almond oil, sesame oil and sunflower oil are used in this procedure, all of which are very good for your skin’s health.
Relief from dry and brittle nails
The oil provides nourishment to the nails and nail bed, helping the new growing nails to become strong. Strong nails are resistant to peeling and breaking. Regular use of this manicure will help avoid frequent breakage. Adding essential oils such as lavender, jojoba and lemon oil will further increase effectiveness of the manicure, as these oils are known to promote nail growth.
Cure for prickly cuticles
We all have suffered from dry peeling overgrown cuticles every now and then. Hot oil manicure helps soften the cuticles, making them more manageable.
Boosts blood circulation
In hot oil manicure you are supposed to immerse your hands in warm oil. The warmth combined with gentle massage is a great way to improve blood circulation in your hands, making them healthy and soft.
Great cleanser and exfoliator
The oil also makes the dead outer layer of the skin soft, which is then easily exfoliated by gentle massaging motions.
Great for men
Unlike other manicures which basically cater to aesthetic purposes, hot oil manicure actually helps with the nail and skin health, making it a great option for men too. Men tend to have rough skin on their hands which can be alleviated with regular hot oil manicure sessions.
