1. Vaseline And Socks
- A pair of socks
Vaseline is known for its ability to lock in moisture and soften even the most callous palms. Many women mention Vaseline as their number one beauty secret.
- After finishing all your activities for the day, wrap up by washing your hands with a gentle soap and drying them off.
- Then get a dollop of Vaseline and rub it into your hands.
- Go ahead and take an extra 30 seconds to massage your hands gently.
- Then simply slip the socks over your hands and go to bed.
- Wake up the next day to supple, soft hands.
- Instead of using socks, you could using fabric gloves, but a clean pair of old socks you don’t use anymore work just fine—and don’t require a trip to the store.
2. Soak Your Hands In Egg Yolks
- Separate an Egg into egg yolk and whites.
- Put the egg yolk into a small bowl, and set the egg whites aside.
- Add 1 teaspoon of honey, 1/2 teaspoon of almond powder, and a few drops of rosewater to the egg yolk.
- Stir well.
- Rub well into your hands for 10 minutes or so, making sure to cover all your skin.
- Allow mixture to sit for about 10 minutes more.
- Gently rinse the mixture from your hands, and dry.
3. Apply Olive Oil And Sugar
Olive oil is a great skin moisturizer.
- Pour about 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil into your palm.
- Add a teaspoon of sugar.
- With one finger, mix the sugar into the olive oil until it is a gritty mixture.
- Then rub your palms together, spreading the oil and sugar mixture to cover your skin.
- Inexpensive olive oil will be fine for this remedy.
- Rub your hands together for several minutes, making sure all your skin is covered.
- After you’ve rubbed your hands well, gently rinse with water.
4. Coconut Oil
Coconut oil is most popular, with its antioxidant and antibacterial properties. It gets absorbed into the deeper layers of skin, strengthening tissue to make it look firmer. Enzymes in the coconut lipids aid in removing the outer layer of dead skin cells, making the skin smoother, somehow it seems less greasy than other oils. Other options are grape seed, jojoba, sweet almond, and olive oil.
5. Moisturize Before Bed
The only downside of using oil as a moisturizer is that it can be greasy, which makes it challenging to use in the middle of the day.
- Apply generously at night, locking in the moisture with cotton gloves before going to sleep.
- Nighttime scrub using a handful of brown sugar mixed with sweet almond oil; rub all over your hands to condition and soften.
