Having hard hands and cracked is nothing pleasant. We all dream of having soft and smooth hands but what is the best trick to achieve this?
Today we offer 5 simple tricks and beauty treatments to have soft hands quickly. Good reading!
1. Hydration for very soft hands
How do you want to have soft and smooth hands if you don’t take the time to hydrate them well? So to have soft and healthy hands, hydration is really very important.
There are nowadays all kinds of good moisturizing, protective and restorative creams for the hands. You also have some that are fortified with vitamins or even plants in order to have even softer hands.
2. Wear gloves when washing dishes
Did you know that simply washing dishes by hand can make your hands rough, dry and much less flexible?
Even if the dishwashing soaps are more and more soft for the skin it is better to wear gloves when washing dishes by hand after meals. Some soaps are more toxic therefore more irritating to the hands. Also by putting on dish gloves you will avoid soaking your hands in the grease and other dirt present in the kitchen sink.
3. Make your hands soft with coffee
A grandmother’s recipe for making your hands very soft is to use the benefits of coffee grounds.
Coffee is an ingredient that is good for guming and tightening the pores of the skin so why not use it to have nice soft and careful hands! Here’s how to do it:
Take the coffee grounds and add olive oil.
Rub your hands for 3 to 5 minutes.
Repeat 2 to 3 times each week.
This natural trick is really very effective in giving back flexibility and sweetness to your hands.
4. Sweet Almond Oil to moisturize the skin
If you have very dry and irritated hands the sweet almond oil can be an excellent solution to your dry skin problem. I advise you to choose a sweet almond oil certified organic and especially 100% natural so that this one is really beneficial for your hands, your face and skin dries elsewhere on your body.
5. Honey, a tip for soft hands
Do you like the taste of honey on toast in the morning or on the melting brie at dinner? Why not use it now to give softness to your hands and feet?
Soak your hands in a bowl of hot water for 5 minutes.
Then add some honey and mix the water well.
Soak the hands again for a few minutes.
In the end a fresh and soothing sweetness will then be felt on your hands. A homemade recipe to repeat every week to have soft hands at all times.
