Beautiful hands: protect them from the cold and take care of your nails
Beautiful hands : well protected from the cold
The importance of protecting the delicate skin of the face is frequently stressed.
But what about hands ? They are just as fragile as your face, and also need to be looked after. Wintertime dries your skin out, exposing it to cracking.
Hands can be protected using this restorative cream which is based on natural emollients and which you can make yourself. Melt in a saucepan or water bath : 4 soupspoons of cocoa butter and some beeswax. Add 4 soupspoons of sweet almond oil and mix well until the texture is smooth and unctuous. Pour the mixture into a sterilised container and let it set. Apply it as often as necessary.
