We use our hands everyday to handle countless things ranging from papers to pot holders to steering wheels and so much more. Just like our feet, our hands also need some rest and rejuvenation. Nobody wants rough and manly palms. Just imagine shaking hands when meeting someone new, wouldn’t it be great to accompany your elegance with soft hands as well?
This article gives you tips on how to get soft, supple hands right at home!
Step 1 – Wash your hands
Every night, make sure you wash your hands with warm water and a trusted moisturising soap. This relaxes your hands and will remove any dirt or dust on them. It also helps you get rid of any disease causing microbes that you might have contracted during the day.
Step 2 – Soak your hands
Take a bowl of warm water, add a few drops of your favourite essential oil (try these Lavender or Rose oils) to get a spa like ambience, and soak your hands for about 10 minutes. If you have some honey lying around, put a little on your ones and gently rub them together. Then soak again. This will soften any hard areas and leave your hands feeling soft and supple
Step 3 – Exfoliate your hands
After soaking, take a moisturising soap and some on a wash cloth or soft bath stone. Using your bath stone, gently massage your palms, back of the palms and fingers to exfoliate and relieve stress and tension. Then, rinse your hands and pat dry.You could also use your favourite body scrub instead.
Step 4 – Moisturise your hands
The final step to achieve soft, smooth, and supple hands is to moisturise. You can use a regular moisturising lotion, body butter or hand cream. Apply an ample amount on your palms and massage together until the moisturiser is absorbed by the skin.
