How to make hand cream at home
In the winter time our hands suffer a lot due to the harsh weather conditions: they are dry, chapped and rough.
The solution is hydration – rich and continuous one.
This homemade hand cream is perfect for winter time and will make your hands softer then every before.
Believe me, it really works, it does not contain any chemicals, you only need 3 ingredients and it is cheap.
This is the second year I use it during winter time and I am very happy with the results.
Also I believe this would make for a perfect Christmas present for your mom for example. She will be much more happier to receive something made by you than something bought by you.
So, you will need only 3 ingredients:
- ½ cup extra-virgin olive oil
- ½ cup coconut oil
- ½ cup beeswax
- Put all the 3 ingredients in a jar/bowl and heat it over bain-marie. Heat it until the beeswax and the coconut oil are fully melted – it may take around 30 minutes.
- Pour the mixture in the recipient, where you want to store the hand cream. Is important to stir continuously until you will obtain a creamy composition. Otherwise, the composition will cool and harden very fast.
- Massage the obtain cream on your hand and then cover them with a pair of cotton gloves. Is better to do this at night, before you go to bed, because the cream will not be absorbed as fast as one bought from the store. When you will wake up, you will have the soften hands ever.
