5 homemade hand scrubs for soft and supple skin
Winter calls for pampering your skin with lotions and creams to combat dryness and make it soft and supple. While we tend to focus more on our face, we often ignore our hands which require equal care and pampering. Hand scrubs exfoliate your skin, stimulate collagen production, and delay premature aging, making your skin soft, wrinkle-free, and moisturized. Try these homemade hand scrubs now.
Sugar and olive oil hand scrub
Sugar helps exfoliate your skin and eliminate dead skin cells while the fatty acids and vitamin E in olive oil soothe and moisturize your skin and delay signs of aging. Mix together sugar, olive oil, and lavender essential oil in a jar. Apply this nourishing scrub to your hands and massage for one minute. Rinse off with warm water. Use it twice a week.
Almond and honey hand scrub
Almond powder exfoliates your skin and promotes skin elasticity. It also soothes dry patches on the skin making it radiant. Honey improves skin texture while combating dryness. Grind some almonds into a fine powder. Add some honey and milk, and mix well to form a smooth paste. Massage this mixture onto your hands for two minutes before rinsing it off with lukewarm water.
Epsom salt hand scrub
Epsom salt not only exfoliates your skin but also relieves inflammation and pain and makes your hands soft and smooth. The addition of grapeseed oil will moisturize your skin. Mix together Epsom salt and grapeseed oil in a bowl until a smooth paste is formed. Rub this mixture on your hands and massage gently for at least one-two minutes. Rinse off with lukewarm water.
Lemon, yogurt, and sugar hand scrub
This hand scrub will not only soften your hands but will also remove tan and make them fairer, smoother, and more radiant with regular use.

Wash off with lukewarm water.
