Home Remedy for Dry Chapped Hands
Do you suffer from dry hands in the winter? It seems like that wherever I have lived, we have always had hard water. My skin tends to be more on the oily side but with hard water, my hands get super dry. Sometimes I will get cracks in my index fingers because it is so dry. To the point that sometimes they will even bleed and it really hurts. Does this happen to you?
Well if you are like me, then you are going to LOVE this Home Remedy for Dry Chapped Hands.
Whenever I tell people about this, they think it’s kinda weird and they really don’t believe me that it works.
UNTIL THEY TRY IT!
Here is what you will need:
Petroleum Jelly, granulated sugar, liquid dishwasher soap and any kind of lotion
Okay, you’re set! Put about 1/2 teaspoon of petroleum jelly in the palm of your hand.
Next sprinkle about a teaspoon full of sugar onto the petroleum jelly
Mush the sugar into the jelly to make a paste.
Then briskly rub this mixture over both of your hands. Briskly meaning rubbing in with as much pressure as you can stand. The sugar will act as an exfoliate to get the dry skin cells off your hands.
Next wash your hands with very warm water and any kind of liquid soap.
Finish with applying your favorite lotion.
If you don’t notice a difference the first time that you do this, I will come over and give you a pedicure! And I don’t like feet. That’s how confident I am that this will work for you.
After repeated uses, the cracks in my fingers usually disappear. Trust me. This tip is a lifesaver!
Hope everyone has a great weekend with new, soft hands!
