20 minute hand care session

Hands are often neglected while we deal with our daily skin care.

In the best case scenario we apply hand cream once a day, but there are days when we probably don’t even do that. And then, without even realizing it our hand get very dry hands, and over time they will be the first thing that will show our true age regardless of how well our face looks.

So, from time to time, it’s a very good idea to give them more attention, which needn’t take more than 20 minutes – and the results are excellent! ;)

20 minute hand care session

First, prepare a bran, brown sugar, finely ground almond kernels scrub to which you add a teaspoon of sodium bicarbonate.

Mix 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a bowl which you’ll heat over a steam bath for 3-4 minutes. Apply the warm liquid on clean hands, focusing on each finger, the cuticles of the nails, each nail in part (the effect is more intense if you don’t have nail polish on).

Cuticles can be pushed gently with a wooden orange stick, and in time will strengthen the nails.

Wrap your hands in saran wrap, then cover them in a towel. After 5-10 minutes, remove saran wrap and towel and rinse with warm water.

Repeat procedure every week.

Your skin will be very smooth and your hands will thank you.

  1. This is a great, natural way to get soft hands. Exfoliating is they key when they are super dry. :)

  2. This sounds like a good recipe for our hands. Thanks.
    The feet are other part of our body that we use to neglect.

  3. My hands are weird like this.
    They are rough from a lot of work in the kitchens.
    Cutting knives etc.
    Yet i also work with oil that keeps them moisturised.
    Odd eh?
