Heather's Smooth Hands
sweet almond oil (or some other pure oil)sugar (just plain white)
liquid hand soapthick hand lotion (I'm a huge fan of Kiss My Face Ultra Moisturizer - Lavender and Shea)
Remove jewelery. Line up all your 'ingredients' and set aside 5 minutes for your self. Place a few drops of oil on each hand and rub all over. Place 1/2 teaspoon of sugar in the palm of one hand and rub all over both hands - this can be messy so I do it over the sink. Don't rub too hard - you'll want some skin left! Squeeze a few drops of liquid hand soap into your palm and rub all over - again - be gentle! Rinse your hands in warm water - pat dry. Apply lotion to your baby smooth hands. I do this Saturday night when I know I'll be shaking hands at church Sunday morning and don't want to rub folks the wrong way!
So, any suggestions? My bedside basket is full of natural lotions and potions, but my hands are as rough as sandpaper. 80 grit. I wear gloves for cleaning and try to wear cotton gloves at night after I lotion up, but they are still so sore and dry. If you have a sure fire cure and want to help put me out of my misery, I'd be much obliged!
I'd shake your hand, but I don't want to hurt you!
