KITCHEN TIPS TO KEEP HANDS AND FEET PRETTY
Are you someone who spends most of her time at salons for a pedi or a mani? What if we told you there are quick kitchen tips that can help you keep your hands and feet pretty without spending too much!
Organic scrubs: A natural gentle scrub can be applied every two to three days. Mix olive or almond oil, with natural brown sugar and a few drops of lavender essential oil, massage into the skin on the hands and feet in firm circular motions, prior to bathing.
Rice grain: This can also be put into the mixture if the skin is additionally dry or rough.
Olive oil and sea salt: Mix these in equal quantity and apply on the hands and feet and massage. After rinsing off, the skin will feel soft, smooth and more relaxed. Homemade aloevera moisturiser: This is an excellent skin moisturiser and can be made at home by mixing aloe gels, organic oil, essential oils and milk. Keep a container beside the bed, prior to retiring for the night, apply and massage on the hands and feet and let them repair overnight.
Other moisturisers: You can use more kitchen ingredients to whip up a moisturiser. If you wear heels and suffer from aching feet, moisturising is of prime importance.
Fixing cracked heels:
Cracked heels can make getting through the day really difficult. To start the healing process, soak the feet in warm water for 10 minutes, add the juice of a freshly-squeezed lemon. Also, use a pumice stone or natural loofah while taking a bath in warm water then pat dry the feet. Apply a mixture of glycerin and rose water, both easily available from a local pharmacy. Rub them generously on the feet, particularly at the heels, especially at night. Glycerin softens and lubricates the dry skin and rose water adds antioxidants. These add antiinflammatory and antiseptic properties.
