Top Model Tips

Preteen Modeling or Preteen Models

So you want to be a top model but you’re not exactly skyscraper tall with bird-fine bone structure?  Fear not!  You can have model-esque features—at least hand-model-esque!  Dubbed the “Heidi Klum of hand models” by New York Magazine, Christina Ambers is a renowned hand and foot model, and of course, she has all of the best tips for keeping your hands and feet soft, beautiful, and totally touchable during the frigid and dry winter months.

Being the hand and foot stand in for actresses and celebrities like Jennifer Love Hewitt, Natalie Portman, Christy Turlington, and Linda Evangelista (yes, even the face and body gals need stand ins for hands and feet!) has taught Ms. Ambers a thing or two about keeping her digits in tip-top shape.

Check out her easy to follow advice for well-manicured hands and feet:

1.) Be sure to moisturize before (and after!) going outside! There’s no such thing as too much moisture!

2.) Always carry a hand moisturizer with you that you can apply throughout the day.  Christina swears by the Dermelect Timeless Anti-Aging Daily Hand Treatment. The four-ounce soft tube can be stashed anywhere, even your clutch, for instant relief from dryness.

3.) “Gloves are like shoes for your feet,” says Ambers, so invest in a few different pairs!  Whether they’re sleek leather, fun fur, or practical hobo, gloves protect your hands from the harsh cold and add a fun accent to your winter wear.

4.) Gloves aren’t just for the outdoors. Christina swears by gloves for household chores. Whether it’s washing the dishes, dusting or cleaning the bathroom, always protect your hands from the chemicals in cleaning products!

5.) If your hands are really suffering from the dryness in the air, deep condition them overnight by lathering on a rich hand cream and wearing cotton gloves to bed. Ambers applies and reapplies her favorite Timeless Anti-Aging Hand Treatment because it not only softens, but targets age spots too! She loves skincare products that are dual purpose because they minimize the clutter in your beauty cabinet and double protect your skin!

6.) In order for your hands to properly absorb your hand moisturizer, Ambers suggests exfoliating your hands and cuticles once or twice a week. Afterwards, she loves to apply the Dermelect Rejuvenail Fortifying Nail & Cuticle Cream to fend off ragged cuticles and hangnails! Most hand and cuticle creams attract dust under the nail tips (a no-no for hand models), but Dermelect’s Rejuvenail even wards off dust and keeps Ambers’s cuticles smooth.

7.) Wash your hands with lukewarm water instead of hot water. Hot water opens your pores and dries out your skin.

8.) Avoid harsh, anti-bacterial soaps because they really dry out the skin.  After you wash your hands, pat dry your hands and apply moisturizer while your skin is still damp; this allows for optimum absorption.
