To look beautiful and fashionable you not only have to dress right, eat good food, take care of your face, hair and skin but you also have to take care of your hand. The skin of the hand is very delicate and since they are always in direct contact with drying elements like detergents, hot water, harsh sun etc, they age quickly, sag and look rough and chapped. Here are a few tips on how to take care of your hands.

Every time you wash your hands or do some intense manual labour, massage your hands with vegetable oil or Vaseline.

Soak hands in a bowl of warm water to which 1 tsp of corn starch has been added for 5 minutes daily after finishing the house-hold chores. This will ensure that your hands feel smooth and silky.

Before going to bed at night massage your hands with a blend of lemon juice and rose water in fresh butter. This will make your hands smooth and soft.

Mix 1 tsp. of Glycerin, 1 tsp. of lemon juice and 5 drops of rose water and rub it on the hands every night during winter months. This will keep your hands soft and prevent chapping.

For chapped hands in winters, wash with lukewarm water (before going to bed), apply milk-cream and put on a pair of gloves; wash hands the next morning.

To remove stains from hands rub with a slice of lemon or a raw potato. For nicotine stains, apply lemon juice and leave for 10 minutes before washing.

Cucumbers are also known for their smoothening characteristics. Mash a cucumber and massage your hands with the mixture. After 10 minutes, wash off the mash and repeat if needed.

If your elbows are dark and hard, mix glycerin with lemon juice and apply on the area.
