Around the time of my engagement and wedding, I was all about taking care of my hands and nails since my ring finger was often the center of attention. Almost two years later, I have gotten lazy! My last manicure was probably 6 months ago, and the dry winter this year sure took its toll on my cuticles. So I whipped up this DIY hand-softening treatment to try to save some bucks (works GREAT on feet too!)
You will need:
1/2 cup Kelapo extra virgin coconut oil
1/2 cup granulated sugar
Juice of 1 lemon
Mix all ingredients in a bowl and rub all over your hands. Brush off any excess and then put on the cotton gloves (or socks). Leave them on overnight (or at least long enough to watch a movie) and when you remove them you should have soft, silky hands!
