If you find yourself shying away from shaking hands (well, pre-covid), you are probably grateful for the new normal rules where elbows have become the major way of greeting for now.

Like many people who are constantly washing their hands and sanitizing, our hands are becoming dry, itchy and even painful in some cases.

When moisture escapes from the protective barrier of our skin it creates a huge problem.

Another mistake you may be making is using very hot water and not moisturizing thereafter.

Also, as we get older our skin gets drier and more irritated. This is medically known as xerosis which may be an early sign of dermatitis and should be checked by your doctor.

Good thing is there are simple changes you can make to improve the appearance and feeling of dryness in your hands. Here are some:

i.Use warm water

As mentioned earlier, using hot water will remove the natural oils from your hands leaving them dry.

Instead, you may want to use lukewarm water when washing your hands or taking a shower while limiting your time in the bathroom.

You want to retain the oils as much as you can.

ii.Use gloves during chores

Most if not all of the cleaning products we use for cleaning contain harsh chemicals that affect our skin when they come in contact.

This is why you must use gloves at all times if you clean occasionally. Failure to do so will exacerbate existing skin conditions and lead to more dryness.

Go for gentle soaps and hand washes

Washing your hands before eating or after using the bathroom are good habits ingrained in us since childhood.

While this is a good thing, frequent use of alcohol-based hand washes and soaps with harsh ingredients will not only get rid of germs but remove all the good protective layer your hands need to stay moisturized and soft.

iii.Use a mask

When it comes to beauty treatments, certain parts of our bodies remain neglected. Of those, our hands tend to suffer the most.

One of the most used part of our body, taking a few minutes out to slather on some mask will not hurt.

Tune in to your favorite TV station then generously apply a mask. It may be messy but the benefits are worth it.

Your hands will be coated in moisture and it would be wise to stay away from touching water for a few hours to allow the product to do its work.

iv.Moisturize

Shower gels and cleansers can be harsh on the skin especially if you’re taking a hot shower. As mentioned, keep the showers short and sweet using natural products as an alternative.

As soon as you step out of the shower, pat your body dry and apply a rich moisturizing cream or oil when your body is still damp.

This should apply to your hands too.

v.Apply hand creams

Hand creams with occlusive properties do a great job at sealing moisture in. Other ingredients you also want to be on the lookout for are ceramides and petrolatum that protect your skin barrier and keep potential irritants out.

Glycerin and hyaluronic acids are humectants that add that extra boost of water in your skin and therefore should be a must have in your hand regiment.

After declaring that long distance relationships aren’t for her, Sherlyne Anyango might have bagged herself a new mzungu boyfriend. It’s barely days since she left the country to go to the States to ‘hustle’. According to her, it’s easier to hustle in the States with her twerking talent.

Love At First Sight?

Well, she moved on quickly! This was the reaction of most of her fans after Sherlyne went live with her new catch. Most people were surprised by how fast she possibly got a boyfriend. But she hasn’t made it clear.

While this might seem unfair to her Kenyan bae, Oga Obinna, it was a mutual agreement between them to dissolve their relationship due to the distance between them.

”I’m a single boy again now😪😱!! Now with the standards you set who will fit in🤷🏿 who will fill your shoes??But Si Ni Life… But for now Kill Them with your AWESOMENESS and SECURE THE BAG!!! Don’t let nobody tell you otherwise. Plus there will always be space for you in my Heart and Kidney🙊🙈🙏🏿.”

In line to this, Sherlyne had also declared how much she misses Obinna and wrote back to him;

  ”Don’t make me cry. That’s life 😞😞. I feel bad. I miss you badly.”

Well, turns out she won’t be missing him any more after getting a new catch. Obinna has not yet responded to Sherlyne’s video posted on her Insta stories. I bet he’s not happy seeing her with another man.

Tips to help you get the perfect blazer Eve woman

 Choosing a blazer is key as it can either break or make your outfit (Image: Pinterest)

 

When it comes to buying or tailoring a new blazer, most people think it’s all about getting what fits. Even though that is one of the most vital things to focus on when selecting blazers, there are other things you need to look out for in order to have a perfect and versatile blazer.

Versatile is not just about being able to match most pieces in your closet, but something that will enhance your outfits and define your best features while at it. In case you are wondering on where to start with buying a blazer, start here:

 Always go for a colour that will pair well with most pieces in your closet (Image: Pinterest)

Yes, this is the first thing you should consider before making or buying yourself a blazer. You need to check your closet and consider the most dominant colour and pieces, can they be layered with a blazer or paired together?

Once that is set, you are good to go, though the more colourful a blazer is the more fun you will have pairing it with other pieces.

When selecting the perfect blazer always be very careful not to choose a small blazer. You might confuse a small blazer for a fitting one.

It should not be too tight that your shoulders cannot move in it or you can barely button it.

Although ladies are lucky they can go with any arm length, because it can be considered fashionable, ensure that it is your size. Also, avoid going for extra-large coats that will drown you and hide your best features.

 The design and texture of a blazer will play heavily on how good you look (Image: Pinterest)

A blazer is in between a suit jacket and a hoodie. Meaning, it should be able to pass for official and casual events. Let your guide be what you are buying it for.

There are different kinds of blazers ranging from open front blazers, single breasted blazers, belted ones, the list is endless.

Always go for a blazer that resonates with your style and closet items. Also, long blazers are classier and versatile than the shorter boyfriend ones. This is in terms of versatility.

Are you looking for a linen blazer, cotton or the suit material fabric? Do you want it shiny or matte? Do you need one with metal studded elements or with embellished buttons like the army? The kind of texture you go for will determine the way you dress your blazer.

Although blazers are meant to match with all outfits, the kind of design you go for can either limit your outfit choices or broaden your matching game.

 The longer the blazer, the more you can play around with your pieces (Image: Pinterest)

They say the longer the blazer, the double the respect. You already know what I mean by this. Longer blazers are more eye catching, trendy and versatile. It will be easier for you to pair them to a tiny skirt, pencil trouser or palazzos.

Also did I mention how well they pair with crop tops? Yes, when buying a blazer, the length is very important.

Residents of Pipeline Transami area are decrying poor drainage system that has caused sewage water to overflow in their area of residence.

The residents claim that the overflowing sewage is not only putting their lives at risk but also causing air pollution.

They have called on Nairobi Metropolitan Services and Nairobi City Water and Sewage Company to come on board and expand the sewer lines before more areas are flooded with raw human wastes coming from the blocked pipes.
“We want Major Badi and our leaders to resolve this menace immediately. It’s terrible many have been forced to shift their businesses because of the foul smell,” they said.
Pastor Joe Ndivoh of Word Evangelistic Explosion Ministries says that they have been forced to call off the Sunday School Service to protect the children from the smelly sewage.
‘‘We now fear that if prompt action is not taken then we will have a bigger health problem than this because we fear there could be an outbreak of water-borne disease anytime,’’ Pastor Ndivoh added.
