My hands are the worse though. I am constantly washing them that they end up getting so dry that they crack and sometimes bleed.
At night I apply Neutrogena intense hand cream and although it works it still is not enough. I finally realized that I should start exfoliating my hands and applying hand lotion through out the day.
I came up with this diy exfoliating oil with 2 ingredients that I already had in the house.
Coconut oil and sugar.
I used Trader Joe's Organic Virgin Coconut oil. It has such a great scent on it's own that I decided not to add any essential oils to make it smell different. You could though. Lavender would be great.
First I scooped out 1/2 Cup of oil, added it to a mason jar and melted it a bit in the microwave.
Then I stirred in 1/4 Cup of basic white sugar.
I let it sit for a couple of hours. Then I put some in a little container to keep by the sink.
It smells great and it really works. You could make a bigger batch at one time. For example 1 Cup of coconut oil and 1/2 Cup of sugar.
