How to keep Hands Silky Smooth

Soft hands are, undoubtedly, a mark of beauty. However, in a world in which everyone has to use their hands to work hard, hands are often taken for granted and become rough and calloused. It is not until we really stop to look at them that we realize what kind of things we have put them through.

Luckily, making your hands silky smooth again is not difficult to do. In fact, if you think that you need expensive lotions and creams that promise youthful hands, think again. These are nothing but promises; and usually, promises that pertain to beauty are like beauty itself, they quickly fade.

The following products can probably be found around the house or easily at your local supermarket. They are inexpensive and they will work wonders if used properly.

– Coconut oil: Apart from the benefits to your heart and health, coconut oil also has benefits for your skin. There are different types of coconut oil and you should be able to tell which one is best by just looking at it. Coconut oil that looks yellow in any way and is in liquid form at room temperature is not high quality. Look for coconut oil that is solid at room temperature and is labeled as “cold pressed.” These are less processed and have better benefits. Apply the coconut oil generously and rub gently. Repeat this process at least once a week.

– Use hand wash that is gentle on the hands. Most of the soap on the market are harsh because of the sodium laureth sulfate, which is a commonly used cleaner. You can also make your own hand wash; however, if you want an antibacterial hand wash, you will have to try to settle for organic choices. A cup of baking soda mixed with 2 cups of water can efficiently deodorize your hands but still leave them feeling soft.

– If you wash dishes constantly, try to use dishwashing gloves. You can find these at your local supermarket or at stores that sell household goods. You can even find them online. Try to protect your hands from the elements as much as possible. If it is dry outside, use moisturizing lotion. Keep a small bottle or tube with you always.

Silky smooth hands that feel like rose petals are coveted by almost every person on this planet. If you can attain these hands with only these inexpensive remedies, you can save yourself time and money in the long run.
