We all have to grow old eventually; it’s a natural process we all go through sooner or later. The first signs of aging are noticeable on our skin, wrinkles start appearing, fine lines around the eyes, enlarged pores, sagging skin on the face and neck. This is usually what we first notice, since the face is the center of our attention.
However, it’s not just the face that reveals our true age, our hands start transforming as well and can get in a bad shape because we hardly pay any attention to them. The skin on our hands is very thin and sensitive which is why it’s always the first to show the signs of aging. There is also very little fat on the back of the hands, so when collagen and elastin fibers begin breaking down, it’s quite noticeable. In combination with the damaging effects from the frequent dish washing and the exposure to the outside elements, you can imagine how our hands can suffer if not treated properly. That’s why it’s very important to care for our hands as much as we do for our face and hair, and maybe even more.
Just like you exfoliate your face to remove the dead skin cells you should exfoliate your hands as well. It will make the skin on your hands smooth and silky and remove the dead skin cells from the surface. But you don’t have to spend hundreds of dollars on expensive cosmetic products, you can do this with some simple natural ingredients which you probably already have at home and we’ll show you exactly how.
Here’s the recipe:
- Olive oil
- Brown sugar
All you have to do is mix the ingredients and apply this mixture on your hands, gently massaging the skin. Afterwards rinse them with some warm water and pat them dry.
