Softer hands

I love to garden but I find it’s a bit harsh on my hands. Can you recommend a beauty treatment for this?


Here’s an easy home-remedy for beautifying your mitts.First, soak your hands in a basin of warm water. Then, rub some baby oil – or any kind of oil for that matter – into your hands.

Next, use a teaspoon of sugar as an exfoliant and massage the grains into your palms and the tops of your hands. Squeeze some lemon juice over your hands and massage that into the mixture too.

Finally, wash your hands clean and apply your favourite hand cream. Your hands will feel smooth and fabulous!
