Hand Care with Alteya and 5pm

2 min read

We’re all about the body in January, right? Gym memberships renewed, trainers on for running, and diets started. But how about focusing on something else?

Maybe your hands? I was gifted some absolutely gorgeous new organic liquid hand soaps before Christmas, and I don’t think I’ve ever washed my hands as much!

Alteya Organics Liquid Soaps are certified organic, made with botanical extracts and pure essential oils. You can use them on face and body, and there are five scents to choose from. I was sent Citrus + Mint, Lavender + Aloe, and Geranium Rose. The latter is absolutely gorgeous! The other two scents are Grapefruit + Orange, and Chamomile + Calendula. The soaps are so gentle – skin is super-soft after using them.

They’re £7.65 for 250ml, or £12.70 for 500ml and are available at lovelula.com

Take some time out this January, and pamper your hands a little bit more with a manicure. There are loads to choose from at 5pm Spa and Beauty – here’s just a few of them.

At I Love Nails in Finnieston you can book in for a Luxury Manicure for £20, from Monday to Saturday. Your nails and hands will never look or feel better. First, your nails will be soaked, filed and shaped. Next, it’s cuticle work, then scrub, then a hand mask and a hand massage, before the application of nail polish. If you want to add Shellac to this, the deal is £28.
