DIY Hand Scrubs: Get Baby Soft, Smooth Hands With These Proven Exfoliants - Infographics
Skincare is not just about indulging your face with serums, essential oils, lotions and creams. Unfortunately, most of us are guilty of not taking enough care of our hands. We don’t even give half the attention to our hands as much as we spend on the face and body care.
Hand care is of utmost importance as they are among the first tell-tale signs of ageing like wrinkles. Even though we might make it a point to carry out the elaborate CTM ritual before hitting the shacks, little do we realize that our hands and nails too require some much-needed TLC and often gets unnoticed due to other priorities.
Our hands not only help us accomplish daily chores like cooking, cleaning dishes, washing clothes, and gardening but also, they act as bridges to the world. We use them to communicate with the world in the form of a ‘hand-shake’ or ‘namaste’. So, not only our faces but also our hands play a significant role in projecting our impression to the outer world. If our hands are dry and rough to touch, they are not going to create a very positive image for the people we meet.
Unlike the skin that forms a tough protective layer for the whole body, our hands and the top layer of the palms don’t have sebum glands and hence are incapable of secreting natural oil to retain moisture keeping them soft and nourished. Moreover, owing to continuous usage, the epidermal layer of the hands often gets dehydrated, thick, wrinkled and pigmented. Well, if you are looking for a remedy, cue in Exfoliants, a magical boon for your dry, rough hands.
What Are Exfoliants?
Exfoliants are natural ingredients that help remove dead skin cells to give way to healthy, younger, rejuvenated cells.
What Is The Need For Exfoliation?
Our skin is constantly shedding dead skin cells. Exfoliation not only scourges away those dead cells and softens and nourishes the skin, but also diminishes the appearance of wrinkles and pores, eliminates toxins and enhances the overall skin tone. Since our hands mostly get run down from being exposed to the numerous elements, constant handwashing and primarily everything we do throughout the day, it requires some pampering to stay looking (and feeling) soft and blemish-free just like our face!
Well, without further ado, we bring you 3 easy-to-whip hand scrubs using natural ingredients from your kitchen counter to get super soft, nourished hands.
