I am serious germ-a-phob! I have to constantly wash my hands or use antibacterial! As much as I love protecting my hands against bacteria, constant exposure to hot water and alcohol has made them dry and not-so-softt! In my opinion, nothing is more appealing than feeling a person’s soft silky hands. This is why I try to use a hand scrub followed by intense moisture as often as possible.  Want soft hands? Check out this recipe for at home hand scrub!

Silky Soft Hand Scrub


1 cup sugar
3-4 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons water
3-4 drops Essential Oil (optional)

In a bowl, mix sugar, olive oil and water until solution is lump free, add essential oil.  With one hand, scoop out a handful of scrub and rub on each hand in a circular motion.  Rub until you feel your hands are the desired level of softness.  Rinse well with warm water, and apply your favorite moisturizer or Vaseline.
