Winter, it’s an interesting time for skin and I loathe the season for a few reasons and one of them is because my hands become super dry.
I know the winter season is coming as soon as my hands start cracking and it’s sometimes quite painful and very unattractive. For those of you who don’t know olive oil is one of the best natural cures for cracked hands and cuticles.
I am going to walk you through a step-by-step DIY hot olive oil hand treatment that you can do yourself at home (all the items needed can be found in your kitchen) to help bump up your skins natural oils and get rid of your old-lady-looking hands.
Your hands will thank you for this! Now let’s get started…
Step 1: Microwave half a cup of extra-virgin olive oil for 20 seconds.
Step 2: Massage the oil into your hands and cuticles.
Step 3: Cover each hand in saran wrap (my preference) or a plastic bag.
Step 4. Soak hands in warm water for 5 minutes to help the oil absorb better.
Step 5. Don’t wash your hands afterwards just blot on a towel for excess oil.
