Sugar for your hands!

02-02-2016, by Mieke

I hardly ever use sugar in the kitchen when baking or cooking and the sugar pot is only filled to fulfill the needs of guests who like some sweetness in their coffee or tea. However, for the skin, sugar can be a true miracle worker. I often use it as a scrub to get silky smooth hands.

Here's how you do it:

  • Put some rich body cream on the palm of your hand and add a tea spoon of sugar
  • Mix both together and start your scrub by gently rubbing your hands in circled motions
  • Wash your hands and gentle pat them dry with a towel

And there they are, your silky soft hands. If you like, you can then moisturize your hands even more, using a hand cream. However, this won't be necessary, as the body cream allready did most of the work. You can repeat this as many times as you like. I love the soft result it gives, so I try to repeat it at least once a week. Easy to feel good :)

You can also use sugar to get silky soft lips! Just take a little bit of sugar, rub it over your lips (without the body cream this time), wash it off and moisturize your lips with a balm. Sweet and soft lips it is!

I recently discovered the Swedish L:A Bruket hand cream with lavender. The scent is to die for and it will not leave your hands feeling sticky and greasy. Find it in the shop!
