Rough dry hands are something that many people suffer from. To soften hands, stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water and follow these simple tips.
SALT HAND SCRUB
Use a hand scrub to get rid of dead skin and soften the rough, dry skin. To make an excellent hand scrub, you will need:
* 2tsp of Salt
* 2tsp of Honey
* 2tsp of Lemon Juice
Combine salt with honey and lemon juice in a bowl. Massage the scrub on the hands for few mins. Rinse off and pat dry. Salt will get rid of dead skin to reveal smoother, softer skin, honey contains lots of anti oxidants that will slow down aging while lemon will treat dry, discolored hands.
LAVENDER HAND CREAM
Find a good creamy moisturizer to apply several times a day or make your own hand cream.
You will need:
* Cold cream or shea butter
* Lavender essential oil
* Coconut oil
Combine a few spoonfuls of cold cream, five drops of lavender oil and a spoonful of coconut oil. Blend in until the consistency is smooth. Slather liberally all over hands and cuticles and massage it in for few mins to increase circulation. Then slip hands into a pair of soft gloves before going to bed.
