If you love gardening, don't despair. There are other ways to keep your hands and nails beautiful. Gardening gloves are probably your best defense to reduce the risk of calluses, broken nails and dry, chapped skin. Keep nails short to reduce the risk of breakage. Use a nail strengthener alone or as a base coat. After a day in the dirt your hands need a miracle — but as a gardener, you see miracles every day! After a hard day's work, gently use a nailbrush and a hand resurfacing product to smooth away dry, rough skin and remove surface dirt. Finish with a moisturizer and follow with a cuticle creme.
