Dry and damaged hands are a problem for most women, especially currently because of the need for intensified hands disinfection. Our hands are damaged by many factors of temperature change, washing or cleaning agents, as well as poor quality soaps with which we wash our hands every day. Proper hand care will make them beautiful, delicate and tidy again. We present the most effective home care methods for your hands!
Daily hand care
Home treatments such as scrubs and creams will take care of our hands. The skin of the hands is very delicate and thin because it contains few sebaceous glands. In addition, hands are often soaked. In the same time soaps and liquids often contain detergents that have an adverse effect on them.
Hand care should be started with the exfoliation of dead skin. However, do not use a coarse body scrub, because the skin on the hands requires gentler treatment. Choose fine-grained peels - they will be less invasive.
Apply the peeling to slightly soaked hands and gently rub it in using circular motions. The peeling will remove old, dead skin and nourish your hands. The skin of the hands is very delicate, so do the peeling maximally once every two weeks.
To protect your hands when cleaning or washing dishes, always wear antiseptic gloves. In addition, when choosing hand treatment, choose gels and emulsions that contain oiling ingredients. After each cleaning, apply oiling cream to your hands. Before bedtime, always apply a thick layer of cream, and if you have very dry hands, protect it with gloves.

Olive oil and egg yolk mask
You can prepare some cosmetics for your hands at your home! For this one, you will need 3 tablespoons of olive oil and 1 egg yolk. Heat the oil and then mix it with the egg yolk. Apply the resulting mask to your hands and wrap them with foil and a towel. Wash off after 20 minutes.
The oil will moisturize and rejuvenate your hands thanks to the content of nutritious fatty acids and vitamin E. The yolk, in turn, contains vitamin A and zinc - thanks to which the hands will be regenerated.
Linseed contains vitamins A and E, as well as zinc and unsaturated fatty acids. To prepare a compress, you need just a few tablespoons of linseed. Add linseed to hot water (not boiling one, because all nutritional substances will be decomposed due to high temperature). Wait about 10 minutes until mucus forms and allow the mixture to cool. Keep your hands in the prepared solution for about 20 minutes. After this time, clean your hands with a paper towel.
To prepare a home hand peeling, you will need 1 tablespoon of baby body oil, 1 tablespoon of almonds and a small cup of lemon juice. Mix a tablespoon of body oil, a tablespoon of grated almonds (remember to make grate them properly because larger pieces can irritate the skin) and a cup of lemon juice. Rub the peeling into your hands for a few minutes, then wash them with warm water. Then you can massage them gently using a moisturizing cream.
