I am Mom, hear me roar!
Being a mother is a lot of work. As a hard-working mom, hands can really take a beating. Between handling papers and homework, cooking, cleaning, yard work, and whatever else the day may hold, a mother’s hands can get brutalized!. Have you ever had one of those days where you feel like your hands have been in water all day, cleaning this and that, and this again? Or perhaps that you've been stuck in the kitchen... *sigh* These are the days when my hands take the most abuse.
CJ’s BUTTer® Minis
Pampered Mama Use #6
Mini Mani Pedi
Here is a little you-time routine that you are sure to love! First, plop down on the couch.
Close, Mom, but let's try that again.
Then, pick out a good book or movie, make a cup of tea, and relax with your feet up and a favorite CJ’s BUTTer® Mini in hand.
Start by working a small bead of CJ’s BUTTer® into each cuticle. A little bit will go a long way for this application. Spend about one minute on each cuticle, fingers and toes.
Once you've gone through them all, go ahead and get a good sized dollop of CJ’s BUTTer® and work it into each hand and foot, massaging until it has soaked in (about 3 minutes). This whole process should (just about!) use up the CJ’s BUTTer® Mini.
Once the CJ’s BUTTer® is all rubbed in, now is a great time to trim those cuticles, since they are softer and more pliable. I like to go over the cuticle area with an emery board after trimming (yes the skin!) to get the fingertip area very smooth. Wow! Your nails are looking healthier already!
Wow, this feels amazing and didn't take long! I should do this more often!
Finish all of this up with some filing, maybe even some buffing and a clear base coat, and your hands are probably looking and feeling like a million bucks!
What is your favorite book or movie to curl up with in those quiet moments?
