Fashion and Beauty Tips for an arm cast

So when you have an accident that results in a broken hand, there are unexpected consequences.  Quite apart from you know, the pain and the inability to have a shower without a plastic bag.

It seriously affects your fashion choices and even your beauty regime.  Ain’t nobody got time for that.

Fashion and Beauty Tips for an arm cast

Fashion and Beauty Tips with an arm cast | how to get dressed

  • Wear soft pants that you can pull on and off with one hand
  • Oversized tops and soft dresses are perfect
  • Stretchy headbands, beanies and the like will save you from having to do your hair
  • Buttons are not your friend
  • Zippers aren’t on your Christmas card list either
  • A soft bra is your new BFF.  I’m in love with my Bonds Bra Tank.
  • Check the width of your sleeves – try something with a stretchy cuff
  • Jersey, waffle knit and oversized stretchy knit fabrics are the bomb
  • Stay away from complicated suck ’em in knickers that need two hands to put on
  • Now is not the time to relive your youth and rock a bodysuit
  • Comfortable shoes that you can kick off easily without buckles or laces are what you need
  • Ankle boots with a wide opening that you don’t need two hands to pull on
  • Use an old scarf as a sling for a little instant glamour update

  • Treat yourself to a professional blowdry – showering is tricky, washing your hair is almost impossible.  Styling it isn’t easy.  Luckily my curls air dry beautifully.
  • Dry shampoo can be sprayed onto your roots with one hand and then worked through with one hand.  Totes stops you being stinky and greasy too. Awesome.
  • Squirt your skincare directly onto your face and smooth into the skin with the other hand
  • Apply your makeup directly to your brush before applying to your skin.
  • Fliptop bottles are so much easier to use with one hand than screw top bottles
  • Holding your deodorant spray can upside down means you can apply deodorant to both armpits – I’ll bet you’re trying to see if you can do it now, right?
  • Skin cleansing is a breeze with micellar water – just pop a couple of cotton pads on your bathroom counter, squirt some micellar water on and cleanse your skin.  Click for my Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water review.
  • Double duty products like a BB Cream, tinted lip balm and lip & cheek creme come in really handy when you’re one handed yet don’t want to look like a corpse.

    I have never stopped to think how awkies it would be to accommodate an arm cast into your fashion and beauty routine – though I could tell you what it’s like having a leg cast from thigh to ankle!!! Hope it heals up super fast for you.ReplyCancel

      Oh dear, I’ve had a full leg cast too. It was awful! But at least I had both hands free!ReplyCancel
