Slugging skincare is a trend that involves applying a heavy-duty moisturizer, such as petroleum jelly or a similar product, to the face before bed to create a "slippery" or "slugged" feeling. This technique is said to help lock in moisture and promote hydration, resulting in smoother and softer skin.
But have you ever considered slugging your hands and nails? Here are some reasons why you should:
- Hydration: Your hands and nails can become dry and dehydrated, especially during the colder months. Slugging your hands and nails can help lock in moisture and prevent dryness, resulting in softer and smoother skin.
- Nail Health: Slugging can also benefit your nails by keeping them hydrated and promoting healthy growth. It can also help prevent nail breakage and splitting.
- Protection: Slugging your hands and nails can create a protective barrier against harsh environmental factors, such as cold weather and frequent hand washing, which can cause dryness and damage.
To slug your hands and nails, simply apply a layer of petroleum jelly or a similar product to your hands and nails before bed. You can also wear cotton gloves to help the product absorb into your skin overnight. Lucky for you, PAUME has the perfect slugging system!
