Handwashing has become an even more essential part of our culture in the last year and with it comes a lot of men who are struggling with chapped hands, sanitizer-dried fingers, and irritated skin. At MenSalon in Rochester, MN we offer easy-to-follow hand care and nail care tips that will have your hands feeling better and your nails looking great, even in the midst of frequent hot-water contact.


Handwashing is indeed an essential part of hand care in a pre- or post-pandemic world, but frequent exposure to hot water can do a doozy on hands and nails if you don’t perform a little additional aftercare. Without adequate moisturizing, hyper-frequent washing can lead to dry skin, brittle nails, and tough-to-ignore irritation. This is especially true if you’re pairing hot water washing with regular hand sanitizer use, even if it’s alcohol free.


Instead of letting your hands continue to take a beating during the pandemic, introducing some moisturizing can make a big difference on how your hands and nails look and feel. Hand care and nail care share a lot of similarities, specifically that they both need to provide adequate hydration. Hand lotion is already a common component of many men’s care routines, but extending that same courtesy to nails is often forgotten. Though it’s easy to write nails off, they can still benefit from regular moisture and a little TLC.


If you’re finding that hand lotions aren’t adequately alleviating your discomfort, MenSalon is proud to offer comprehensive nail care and hand detailing services to men looking for a reset for their nails and hands. This service is a great way to address current skin concerns while simultaneously leaving your hands looking their absolute best. Plus, our nail and hand care practitioners can help you create a care routine that will service your hands better in the long run.


If you’re looking to enhance your hand care during the pandemic or for some emergency nail care, MenSalon has you covered. Rochester, MN area men can contact us today at (507) 288-1836 or visit our website here for more information on our hand and nail services.
