Hands and feet are particularly prone to suffering from dryness and cracking, especially in the winter months when your skin can become stressed and hardened from dry, cold air.
Maintaining soft hands may be a difficult task, especially for women, due to frequent contact with water and soap.
Today, we bring to you some of the simplest yet amazing home remedies to get soft hands.
GET RID OF DRY AND ROUGH HANDS WITH THESE NATURAL REMEDIES
Olive oil contains omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids, which keeps your skin soft and smooth to the touch. It is filled with vitamin E that is a famous antioxidant. It prevents oxidation in skin cells so, as a result, skin looks much younger and less wrinkles appear in the skin surface.
Method 1: Massage your hands with some warm olive oil for 5 to 10 minutes twice daily to enjoy soft and smooth hands.
Method 2: Mix equal amounts of olive oil and fine sugar. Rub this scrub on your hands using light, circular motions for a few minutes. Wait 5 minutes, then rinse it off with warm water, pat dry and apply a light moisturizer. Do this twice a week.
Method 3: Mix together some oatmeal and few drops of olive oil. Rub the mixture on your palms to blend it perfectly. Wash off after 15 minutes.
ALMOND OIL AND BUTTER
The butter lubricates the skin whereas the almond oil which is rich in Vitamin E, hides visible signs of ageing such as wrinkles and fine lines.
Mix two teaspoons of butter and one teaspoon of almond oil and apply on your hands. Let it sit for 20 minutes. Wash off with water. Do this daily.
Coconut oil has antibacterial and antifungal properties. It is an excellent moisturizer.
Massage your hands with warm extra-virgin coconut oil. Massage for about 5 minutes using circular motions. Do this every night before going to bed. Wear gloves overnight for best result.
