Hands are the workhorses of our entire body. They swipe lip gloss. Brush our own hair and text our messages. They all do to us, they’re not only self-serving. Our hands, make the supper, pats the backs, waves hello, claps in thunderous applause and wipes away tears.
Isn’t it time that people spoiled them a little? Using a couple of key ingredients and in only 20 minutes, you’ll have gorgeous hands worth holding.
To get started, remove all jewelry from your hands-on. Then construct the necessary ingredients and equipment. You will need liquid soap or shower gel (preferably all natural hand soap free from synthetic detergents such as SLS), sugar, olive oil or a bath and body oil blend, vanilla infusion, basic soy wax (available in your regional super craft shop ), two big microwave-safe mixing bowls (one with warm water and a single to the soy wax) cream and 2 towels. Let’s start!
The very first step is easy because you’ve done it since you’re tall enough to reach the sink, washing your hands. Rather than vigorous hand washing gently wash them using a fragrant liquid hand soap. Be sure to have underneath your nails.
Exfoliating softens callouses and eliminates dead skin. First warm 1/2 cups of olive oil from the microwave. You can make it as warm as you like, but not too hot, you don’t need to melt your own sugar. Of course, there’s nothing wrong without heating your olive oil, but warm oil tired hands feel incredible.
Insert your olive oil into 1 cup of sugar, 2 tsp of liquid soap and 1 tsp of vanilla extract. The sugar functions as an exfoliant, the liquid soap will emulsify when you rinse off the mix along with the vanilla extract just smells good.
Mix together your own sugar scrub and cover your hands, wrists, and forearms. Working your way softly toward your elbows. Use as much of this mix as you need and pay particular attention to those dry patches and callouses. Rub until mixture starts to feel”dryer” and the majority of the olive oil has consumed. Wipe the sugar wash mix.
Place the soy wax in one of the bowls and then melt in the microwave. Take care not to bring the wax to a boil. It should be only melted thoroughly. Here is actually the fun part. Relax and love until the wax starts to harden. You definitely want to remove your hands BEFORE the bowl of wax entirely hardens.
PEEL and SOOTHE
After removing your hands out of the wax jar, gently peel the dried wax out of your hands. After you’ve thoroughly peeled the wax. Fully immerse one clean towel into the next mixing bowl filled with warm water. Wring the excess water out of the wet towel and wrap both of your hands in the towel for a soothing treat.
As soon as you eliminate the towel, generously apply all organic body lotion in your hands to lock in moisture.
Follow these directions and your hands will feel amazing. Repeat the process one time weekly to see improved results. Be sure to experiment with different body oils, body lotions, and body washes. Lastly, the recognition these unsung heroes deserve!
