Homemade Hand Conditioner
Are your hands feeling a little tired and rough due to excessive hand washing?
To make your own food-friendly all-in-one hand conditioner, simply combine butter or olive oil (coconut oil also works well) with a little sugar or fine sea salt to form a paste. The fat acts as the moisturiser to replenish while the sugar or salt exfoliates to remove any dry rough skin. Spend a couple of minutes rubbing a small spoonful of this paste all over your hands, then remove any excess into the bin and rinse with warm water. You’ll be surprised how soft and revitalised your hands will feel!
I either make it up as I need it, spooning a little of each into the palm of my hand before scrubbing, or I make up a small batch and keep it in an airtight container at room temperature in my kitchen so it is ready whenever my hands are feeling like they need a little TLC. You can also blend in a few drops of essential oil like lavender or peppermint if you want.
