With all the scrubbing and washing, your hands might dry out, leaving them rough and lifeless. The skin on your hands is fairly sensitive in comparison to other parts of your body. Using these products regularly will protect your skin drying out. Most of them may already be at home, in your kitchen, and will ensure you always handle your baby with soft hands

1. Coconut oil and Sugar

Make a simple paste with coconut oil and sugar. The coconut oil locks the moisture in your skin, while the sugar exfoliates the dead cells, rejuvenating new and fresh ones.

2. Vaseline and Sock

Vaseline is known to lock moisture in the skin, so use a dollop of this on your palms after washing them with a mild soap. Cover your hands with a clean sock to retain the moisture. Do this before you go to bed and you will wake up to the beautiful supple skin.

3. Honey, Lemon and Baking Soda

This pack not only moisturises your hand but also lightens the shade of your palm. The honey has the capacity to moisturise your skin, while the lemon and baking soda lighten the skin colour.

4. Banana Peel

Instead of throwing away the banana peel, rub it lightly between your palms for a supple glow and soft skin.

5. Exfoliate

Getting rid of a layer of dead skin will bring out the layer underneath it, enhancing the glow and texture of your skin. Exfoliating your skin is vital for you to regain the moisture in your palm.
