How To Have Silk-Soft Hands
Hands are continuously exposed to all kinds of harmful influences. From weather to housework – they have suffered it all. To reverse the ill effects of the environment it is not sufficient to simply rub your hands with lotion as many women do and call it hand care. You must also protect your hands.
Use rubber gloves when doing housework. If you don’t, then your hands will dry, lose skin fats and age quicker. To preserve the beauty of your hands, you must care for them constantly. If you regularly spoil your hands with masks, they will repay you by being beautiful, fresh and well hydrated.
Before applying a hand mask, you must wash your hands and dry them with a thick towel.
If your hands have dry skin which is rough to the touch, then give them a mask with one teaspoon of honey, one tablespoon of milk, one tablespoon of olive oil and three tablespoons of oat bran. Mix all ingredients, apply to hand skin and cover with cotton gloves. Do this before going to bed.
Also before going to bed you can do a mask with lemon juice, one egg yolk, one tablespoon of honey and one tablespoon of almond oil. Don’t forget to put on gloves!
Rough skin of the hands will also soften from a mask of equal parts oat bran, hot water, olive oil, lemon juice and glycerin. Apply to hands for 15 minutes and rinse with warm water.
A milk bath is just as helpful. Mix oat bran with hot water and add warm milk. Soak your hands for about 15 minutes and wash. Follow with a lotion of your choice.
Cottage cheese masks are also excellent for hands. Combine one teaspoon of freshly squeezed parsley juice, one teaspoon of olive oil and three tablespoons of whole cottage cheese. Apply to hands for 20 minutes and wash with warm water.
