DIY Hand Scrubs

Save

Homemade hand scrubs are perfect for pampering on a budget. When hands are dry and need moisture and exfoliation, common household ingredients such as olive oil and sugar can moisturize and remove dead skin. You will also have peace of mind knowing exactly what's in a hand scrub as opposed to hard-to-pronounce chemical ingredients in store-bought scrubs. Most items can be found in the kitchen and are easily combined for use, so scope out what's in the kitchen and prepare for pampered hands.

Things You'll Need

  • 1 tbsp. flaxseed oil
  • 1 caplet vitamin E oil
  • 1/4 cup cornmeal

Anti-Aging Hand Scrub

  • In a bowl, combine 1 tbsp. flaxseed oil, one caplet of vitamin E oil and 1/4 cup cornmeal.

  • Work the scrub into your hands. Massage it in for a few minutes so it exfoliates dry skin.

  • Rinse the skin thoroughly to remove the scrub.

Moisturizing Olive Oil Scrub

  • In a bowl, combine 2 tbsp. olive oil and 1/4 cup dark brown sugar.

  • Rub into hands for 5 minutes so skin absorbs some of the oil.

Dry Hands Scrub

  • Grind 1/4 cup almonds in a blender until chopped to fine pieces.

  • In a bowl, combine ground almonds with 1/8 tsp. mayonnaise.

  • Rinse the scrub from your hands.

Rejuvenating Hand Scrub

  • Boil 1 tbsp. wild oats.

  • In a glass bowl, combine oats with 1 tbsp. refrigerated milk and 1 tsp. honey.
