To keep your hands in tip top condition, you need to moisturise daily. But to make your moisturiser work more effectively, you should be exfoliating regularly to remove the dead skin cells. Here is a great quick exfoliant you can create in your own kitchen.
As with any homemade items, please do not try this if you have any allergies. Always try a small area prior to applying everywhere to ensure no allergic reaction.
½ cup sugar (brown or granula)
1/2 cup olive oil
Simply combine the sugar and oil together.
Masage into your hands, remember to also apply it to the backs of your hands too.
Rinse thoroughly and moisturise.
Tip: apply your hand cream before washing your pots and wear marigolds. Your moisturiser will penetrate deeper into your hands!
