Nothing wrong with taking care of your hands and nails. I use a hand cream daily and try to wear gloves when gardening but despite setting off with good intentions the gloves come off.
My nails suffer through gardening so I file them flat and square rather than rounded now...it stops them breaking...and keep a bar of soap near the kitchen sink, which if you can remember to dig your nails into before going out into the garden, stops soil from getting under your nails.
It's also a good idea in the summer to get a good suncream and aftersun, surprising how you can catch the sun if you are out in the garden, even just for a few hours.
All good tips, thank you, I will look up the Chain Bridge Honey Farm site as I love natural products.
I like using stuff made by Sanctuary, not sure how natural the products are but they have a good range and add stuff like jojoba to their products.
