Hands care : Our 7 tips for having beautiful hands without breaking the bank or investing in overpriced creams. A simple and natural way to take care of them.


Handmade Alternative To Soap For Your Hand

Our hands are in contact with aggressive soaps and detergents every day. Fortunately, you can avoid overexposure to chemicals by making a cleansing formula, without soap.

Tip:  add three drops of tea tree essential oil to a bottle of rose water. Known for its antibacterial properties, rose water is also soothing and antioxidant (therefore ideal for the sensitive dermis of the hands). Use this formula instead of soap to wash skin epidermis, without drying it out.


Natural Hand Care Exfoliant

Hands can benefit from a rejuvenating scrub. But not the same as those we do for the body, often too much abrasive for the hands. But what if you want to exfoliate your hands ?

Tip: Go for dairy products! Immerse your hands in a basin of lukewarm whole milk for 15 minutes. It is less known, but milk has the power to exfoliate the skin, without adding abrasive agents.


Hydrate Your Hand Skin With This Natural Formula

The key to great skin is hydration, especially after exfoliating. We choose a nourishing cream based on vegetable butter, including shea and cocoa, but what if we wanted a homemade moisturizer?

Tip: Mix a tablespoon of oatmeal and natural yogurt, a teaspoon of honey and lemon, and five drops of essential oil of sweet almond. Leave on your hands 20 minutes, then rinse with hot water. The natural acids in yogurt and lemon remove dead skins, while the other ingredients moisturize and protect your hands from skin irritations.


Care Of Your Hands Even At Night

The night is restorative: use a richer treatment on your hands while resting. Before going to bed, brush your hands with either an oil-based cream or a pure vegetable oil (coconut, olive, sesame).

Tip: Don’t hesitate to put a lot of it.
You can wear cotton gloves overnight (to avoid stains on the sheets!). When you wake up, your hands will have absorbed the nourishing oil and will be very soft..


Natural Wax For Your Hands

We frequently insist that the delicate skin on the face needs to be protected, but what about the skin of our hands? Hands are as fragile as the face so we have to care of them. The winter period dries out the skin, making it vulnerable to cracks and crevices.

Tip: Make your own repairing cream based on natural emollients, in melting in a saucepan in a bain-marie 4 tablespoons of cocoa butter and beeswax. Add 4 tablespoons of sweet almond oil and mix well, until the texture gets smooth and creamy. Pour the preparation into a sterilized jar and left it harden, to be applied as often as necessary.


A Simple Way To Protect Your Hands From Sun

UV rays can affect the skin all over the year and cause age spots. Hence the interest of protecting them with a sunscreen. After having put it on your body, all you have to do is apply sunscreen on your hands (minimum SPF15).


Your Nails deserve Also A Special Care

Healthy nails are a good indicator of our health. We all want nails that are shiny, strong and cuticle-free. Here, vitamin E is an essential ingredient. Soak your nails for 10 minutes in a bowl of olive oil, rich in antioxidants. We massage the contour of the nails, which strengthens them while softening the cuticles. The result ? Long-lasting, smooth and shiny nails

Tips: For smokers, a tip against yellow fingers: rub the index and middle fingers with half a lemon for 10 minutes. Natural astringent, its cleansing properties penetrate the skin without drying it out. To avoid new stains, massage your fingers with olive oil, which would be very effective against nicotine stains.
