Do your hands feel dry, wrinkly, and rough? Especially in the winter, when the air is dry and you’re not getting enough vitamin D, your hands can take a real beating.
This doesn’t have to be the case, however, as there are simple remedies you can do to revive them.
In this blog post, we’ll talk about what can be causing your hands to become dry and wrinkly in the first place, and how to make a simple remedy to heal and revive them.
What’s Causing Dry Hands?
When people put lotions on their hands, they don’t always realize that it doesn’t just evaporate into the air. Instead, it gets absorbed into your skin and goes into your bloodstream and liver.
It’s important to be aware that 22% of all personal care products are petroleum-based and include solvents like benzene and mineral oil. These products can pull out the fat-soluble vitamins like vitamin A, D, E, and K, leaving your hands very dehydrated and red, cracking, and itchy.
In addition, the chemicals in tap water can be very harsh on your skin. Fluoride and chlorine can be especially damaging. With the current situation where people have to wash their hands 20 times a day, you can imagine how this can affect the skin.
It’s also important to recognize that your external skin is a reflection of what’s going on inside. Your diet, what you eat and avoid, and how you take care of your body can all have an effect on the look and feel of your skin. Lowering carbohydrates and doing intermittent fasting are two powerful things that can slow down the aging of your skin.
Here’s the remedy:
1. In a small bowl, mix together one egg yolk, one teaspoon of raw honey (preferably manuka honey), and two tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil.
2. Apply the mixture to your hands and let it soak in for 20 minutes without washing it off.
3. After 20 minutes, rinse your hands off.
The egg yolk is full of fat-soluble vitamins. Manuka honey is anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and anti-fungal, making it great for wound healing, inflammation, and your skin in general. The sugar in the honey feeds the microbes on your skin and helps to nourish them. Olive oil is a great moisturizer that helps to soften up and nourish the skin.
You can do this remedy twice a week for best results. Make sure to do it right before you go to bed so that it has time to work its healing magic.
Doing this remedy will help to revive your dry, wrinkly hands and make them look and feel younger. In addition, it’s important to take care of your body from the inside out to make sure you’re looking and feeling your best.
