With all that garden work and beach time, it seems hard to maintain healthy and soft hands. Ground, sand, salty water, sun, chemicals and cheap creams can make your hand skin rough. Dealing with scaly and scratchy hands is impossible, especially if you use store-bought hand products.
I suggest you stop spending heaps on them and switch to all-natural versions. Since it all starts with hand scrubs, here are the ten simple DIY scrub ideas for super soft hands. You do not have to buy expensive ingredients. All you need is already in your kitchen.
1. Granulated sugar, olive oil and lemon scrub
If you grow your own vegetables and spend most of your summer in the garden, this DIY hand scrub is for you. The ingredients are affordable and you probably already have them in your pantry. Simply combine granulated sugar, lemon juice and olive oil to make a scrub and use this scrub twice a week. You can store this scrub in your fridge.
The vitamins, minerals and antioxidants found in lemon and olive oil will make your hands silky soft, brighten your hand skin and stimulate collagen production, while the sugar will help remove dead skin. Moisturize your hands after you use the scrub.
