Hand and nail treatment in 10 minutes flat!

We all dream of having super soft hands with robust nails, in perfect order…However, our hands and nails are really put to the test throughout the year! They suffer the discomforts of the heat, sand, chlorine or sea salt in the summer, the cold in winter, and household detergents and other soaps the rest of the time…

Today, Perles de Gascogne offers a really easy, plum oil based recipe so you can pamper your hands at home! Renowned for its nourishing, soothing and protective qualities, this oil has the double advantage of softening and moisturising your hands whilst also strengthening your nails. It only takes a few minutes to prepare! The added pleasant fragrance of the prune kernel oil ensures that the nail treatment is a true moment of relaxation… The lemon whitens your nails and helps reduce brown spots on the skin caused by smoking, sun exposure and ageing. Give it a try!
