Homemade Hand Scrub Recipes: Give Your Tired Little Helpers A Nice Natural Treat

When it comes to skin care, the main focus for most women is usually the face, which is perfectly natural.  However, you shouldn’t neglect the other parts of your body too.  Did you know that one of the most common age giveaways are you hands?  I’ve seen it a thousand times.  You have a wrinkle free face matched with an old pair. So to give your tired little helpers a nice natural treat.  Here are some great homemade hand scrub recipes that are sure to make them look and feel years younger in no time.

Homemade Hand Scrub RecipesOLIVE OIL HAND SCRUB

What You Will Need:
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon of lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup of brown sugar
Olive oil is a great moisturizer.  The brown sugar actually works as a natural scrub- so this also exfoliates too.  Lemon juice not only freshens the hands but is also great for getting rid of any unwanted odors.  Like the smell of onions after you’ve peeled and chopped. What To DO: It is pretty simple, the first step, after getting all of your ingredients together, of course, is to simply mix them well in a bowl. Simply rub this mixture on your hands for a good 5 minutes.  You can let it sit for another 5, just to let it really soak up the oil.  Then rinse off.

What You Will Need:
  • 2 tablespoons of honey
  • 1 tablespoon of oat meal (uncooked)
  • 1/3 cup of refrigerated milk
Honey is an amazing natural skin care product.  First of all, it moisturizes.  Second, because it is a great antioxidant, it even protects your skin from the sun.  Third, it can even help repair damaged skin.  This is great for cuts and burns.  Milk, because of it’s lactic acid, is actually a great exfoliant to as it helps break down dead skin cells.  So you can pretty much say that it soothes and smoothes.  Why cold?  It will actually help tighten your skin and make your pores smaller.  The oatmeal acts as the scrub. What To Do: First, get you oat meal and mix it with your cup of milk in a bowl.  Then you want to follow by adding your two tablespoons of honey. After you have your scrub ready, you will need to start with a clean pair of hands.  So wash them with soap before you apply.  Massage the mixture into your hands.  Work on this for about 3-5 minutes.  Then let it sit for about 10 minutes after.  Rinse and dry.

What You Will Need:
  • 1/3 cup of almonds
  • ½ cup of milk
  • 1 tablespoon on mayonnaise
Almonds are actually one of the super foods when it comes to anti aging, but not only when you eat them.  You see, they too are a great antioxidant, which means they are great for the skin.  In this case, they will act as a natural scrub and will gently get rid of dirt and dead skin cells.  As for the milk, you can refer to the previous recipe.   Mayonnaise is a rich source of vitamin E, which helps soften the skin and give it a nice glow. What To Do: This takes a little more preparation than the first two.  You will need to soak you almonds in water for a few hours to soften them up a bit.  Then you should put them in a blender and mix until they are finely ground.  Add your milk as well as your mayo.  Mix well. Scrub on for 5 minutes.  Leave for 10.  Rinse well.
