Usually, we love taking care of our face and hair, but we often neglect the beauty and wellbeing of our hands and feet. In today’s article, let’s take a look at some wonderful, natural beauty treatments using only natural ingredients that you might even be able to find in your kitchen.
1. SIMPLE HOMEMADE LEMON HAND LOTION
With the regular washing and being exposed to the elements for much of the day, your hands can quickly dry out, so they need taking care of, if you want to keep them soft and smooth. For a simple homemade hand lotion that will rehydrate your hands fast, simply mix a cup full of glycerine with 5 tablespoons of lemon juice.
2. INTENSIVE CARE HAND CREAM
This natural hand cream recipe is ideal for hardworking hands, or hands that have become very dry and chapped. You will need: 1 tablespoon beeswax, 10 drops myrrh essential oil, 10 drops cedar wood essential oil, ¼ cup shea butter and two tablespoons of almond oil. Melt the beeswax, shea butter and almond oil in a double boiler, allow it to cool for five minutes, and then stir in the essential oils and leave it until it has set completely.
3. STRENGTHEN NAILS WITH OLIVE OIL AND LEMON JUICE
This is a simple and really effective way to strengthen your nails with nothing more than olive oil and a little lemon juice. Simply mix together a tablespoon of olive oil and a couple of drops of lemon juice and then rub that into your nails each night before you go to bed. If you keep up with that routine, it won’t be long before your nails are super strong and crack free.
4. USE TEA TREE OIL TO REMEDY A NAIL FUNGAL INFECTION
If your nails have become yellowed, it could be that are using dark nail polish too often. On the other hand, it could also be that you have a nail fungal infection. If the latter is the cause of your yellow nails, then try applying tea tree oil to your nails. Leave it for five minutes to sink in and then wash off again with warm water. Tea tree oil has very potent anti-fungal properties that should have your nails cleared up in no time at all.
5. USE APPLE CIDER VINEGAR TO GET RID OF A WART
Warts on the hands are embarrassing and they can be painful too. For a quick and natural way to get rid of warts, try soaking a small cotton wool ball in apple cider vinegar and then taping that over the wart with some sticking plaster. It might sting a bit, but the acidity of the vinegar will attack the wart and eventually you will be able to remove the wart easily.
