Our hands are a very small part of us – but we still want them to look and feel beautiful. That is why we will pay $50 a month if we have to on a manicure so that our nails will look better after we have bitten them down to the cuticle. Fixing our nails is easy to do – but trying to keep our hands soft is something that many of us have been trying to figure out for quite a long time.
One of the more natural remedies you can use to fix this is to rub Vaseline on your hands and then to wear cotton gloves. Do this right before you go to bed and leave them on all night long. When you wake up in the morning take the gloves off , wash your hands, and enjoy the smoothness that you have given them. Remember not too put on too much Vaseline.
Another method is to wash your hands in cold water using moisturizing soap. When you have rinsed your hands soak them in a bowl with warm water for 5 minutes.
After the five minutes are up put 2 tablespoons of sugar and a few drops of warm water onto your hands. Rub your hands together as if you are applying lotion. Keep doing this for a few minutes.
When you are done use a small washcloth and put more moisturizing soap on it. Then you rub this all over your hand in small circles from front to back. Rinse with warm water.
When you dry your hands leave them a little damp. Apply more lotion and wipe off any extra. The best lotions to use are the ones that have macadamia nut oil because it is easy for the skin to absorb this.
Lastly you want to massage rosewater gently into your hands. This will help to smooth your skin tone and soften your skin as well as make them smell nice.
You will be amazed by how these work – but remember that if you want the results to last you need to do them every day.
