Let’s face it, skin and cold weather do NOT go hand in hand (no pun intended). The cold manages to suck any moisture that I have in my hands away, leaving me with painful, dry, cracked skin. Personally, I am a huge baby when it comes to cracks in my hands. This stems from the fact that a crack on my hands seems to literally take an eternity to heal. So, until they do, I have to deal with that uncomfortable “stingy” feeling or the occasional crack popping open again. Which is literally the worst! So, in the winter to avoid this awfulness, I am constantly moisturizing my hands. However, I have learned over the years that just putting on some lotion will not solve the problem. To really keep my hands in good condition, I exfoliate them 2-3 times a week with a homemade hand scrub. This scrub, is gentle, effective and super easy to make. Since I have been using this scrub, my hands have been in significantly better shape than before. Not to mention my skin is super soft feeling now!
