Hands are the most neglected parts of the body when it comes to their pampering. Since we do all of our work with our hands, such as washing, cleaning, cooking, etc, our hands get exposed to various chemicals present in detergents and soaps.

This makes the skin of the hands dry and causes wrinkles to appear on the skin as well. Skin on the hands is not as soft as the skin on our face.

And the skin on our hands needs a deep moisturisation and nourishment, which it doesn't get normally, as we tend to use many chemical lotions at the end of the day.

Homemade hand creams can nourish and soften your hands, as these creams get absorbed beneath the skin of the hands. They are very easy to make at home and require simple ingredients.

Now, you can make your own handcream with the use of simple ingredients to make your hands appear younger and soft. Here are 2 recipes for homemade hand creams. Do try them out!

It should achieve a consistency of a cream. Take out the cream and add to it all the essential oils. Whip the mixture until it's soft and looks like a thick whipped cream.
