We probably wash our hands more often and thoroughly than ever before, however conventional hand soaps often leave your skin dry like the desert. If possible, choose a hand wash that is soft and gentle, yet effective, and prefer organic ingredients.
Make sure you have a hand cream ready at all times – it’s so easy to forget, but will truly be a gamechanger for your skin. We recommend getting several in different consistencies – balms, salves and also lighter lotions – so you can have one in your car, one in your handbag and one next to the computer and the kitchen sink. Again, look for organic and natural ingredients, since everything you rub on your skin will be absorbed directly to your bloodstream.
Make sure the coconut oil or shea butter is room-temperature and mix the base ingredient with your chosen oil in a bowl, blending with a fork. Using the same fork, start whipping it to build up a soft and foamy feel. Keep whipping until the mix doubles in size and feels consistent. Add your essential oil and optional E vitamin drops and blend. Grab a small glass container and scoop the cream into it. You can also create a nice label to show off your design skills.
