Old-fash­ioned paste for smooth hands

New Zealand Woman’s Weekly - - GREENGODDESS -

In the old days women used to take very good care of their hands, en­sur­ing they were smooth and soft at all times. Th­ese days we tend to roughen them up in the gar­den, use harm­ful de­ter­gents and in­dulge in all sorts of ac­tiv­i­ties that leave them rough and dry. This is a very old recipe I found in one of my books that re­ally works, but you need to do this every night for two weeks – and you have to wear gloves to bed! If you are pre­pared to take the chal­lenge, you will be re­warded with hands your great-grand­mother would have ad­mired.

2 tbsp of al­mond meal

1 tbsp of honey

1 egg yolk, beaten frothy yel­low

Mix all the in­gre­di­ents to­gether and rub onto your hands.

Ap­ply gloves – cot­ton or an old pair of leather ones will work well – then go to bed. Re­peat every night for two weeks.
