Nail stylist Lisa Logan of The Nail Suite in NYC—aka Beyonce’s Manicurist Shares Her Tricks on How to Get Light Worthy Hands
AGE-PROOF YOUR SKIN
Exposed to harsh elements, your hands give away your age before any other body part. For silky smooth hands without any telltale age spots, “moisturize and exfoliate,” recommends Lisa Logan. “Treat your hands like the skin on your face.” Here are her pro suggestions.
Logan suggests using a scrub on your hands (and feet!) in the shower at least twice a week. Serene Creme Sugar Salve is a whipped sugar¬based formula that exfoliates dead skin cells and leaves a dewy glow ($24 for 8 fluid ounces; www.serenecreme.com).

“I see a major difference in my clients who use a cuticle oil in between visits,” says Logan. “When your cuticles are hydrated, your nails look healthier.” Just massage a half-drop of Vashti The Perfect Cuticle Oil into each nail bed. Vitamin E, coconut and avocado oils will soften snags while promoting healthy nails and cuticles ($16 for 1 fluid ounce; www.vashticollections.com).
Too many back-to-back gel manis? NAILS INC. Overnight Detox Mask is packed with antioxidants—green tea, acai and spirulina—to treat and strengthen damaged or weak nails ($15 for .49 fluid ounces; www.nailsinc.com).
Apply sunscreen to the backs of your hands to prevent spots and wrinkles caused by UVA/UVB rays. Keep Deborah Lippmann Rich Girl Hand Cream in your bag for on-the-go SPF 25 coverage ($28 for 3 fluid ounces; www.deborahlippmann.com).
The shea butter, hemp oil and Ayurvedic powerhouse neer oil in Nubian Heritage Indian Hemp & Haitian Vetiver Hand Cream will rehydrate and soften hands ($8.99 for 4 fluid ounces; www.ulta.com).
