Dry hands and feet can be inconvenient and unattractive and because our hands and feet are the busiest parts of our bodies, they tend to wear out faster compared to the rest of our bodies. It is therefore important that some level of attention be paid to the hands and feet.There are several helpful tips on how to care for dry hands and feet using natural ingredients.

Moisturize your hands and feet with essential Oils 

After each and every wash, moisturize your hands. Carry moisturizer with you. Use coconut oil to moisturize your hands and feet. It will keep them moisturized and nourished all day.

Exfoliate your hands and feet

People often exfoliate their faces, but neglect their hands. Yet the skin on the hands is thin, fragile, and even more susceptible to damage than some areas of the face. If you’re severely dry and calloused, try a pumice stone after bathing. You can also put about 1-2 tablespoons of sugar in your hands, add in some olive oil, and rub both the front and back of your hands to loosen up that dry, dull skin. Use at least 3 times a week, depending on your skin’s needs, and always apply a moisturizing lotion immediately afterwards.

Wear gloves to bed

Damaged hands need constant moisturizing, so it’s time to deep-treat overnight. Apply olive oil or coconut oil and put on some cotton gloves or wool socks and go to bed. You can also try placing Ziploc bags around your hands with rubber bands around your wrists to lock in the moisture. Rinse off in the morning

Avoid hot-air dryers

These are becoming more and more popular because they save money and the environment, but they can easily dry-out your hands. Pat-dry with some toilet paper or simply shake dry, then put on your lotion!

Enjoy the weekend!

All work and no play, you know the rest of the story.

Fridays are fun and even though some of us work round the clock, it is a time to relax, evaluate what happened in the course of the week, retreat and gear up for the next week. There are several fun things you can engage in this weekend and you don’t have to break a bank to do so.

See a Movie 

Who doesn’t love movies? Go out and see a movie by yourself or do it with friends after all, the more the merrier.

Treat Yourself 

If you don’t give yourself a treat, who will? It could be going for a swim, a shopping spree or whatever you consider as your guilty pleasures and while you are at it, make sure you don’t go bankrupt.

Hang out with Friends

What would life be without friends? We think it will be an empty boring place. Go out with your friends this weekend and catch up on old times.

Get your Hair done

Look beautiful, be confident, be happy. Visit the salon and get some hair pampering.

Meditate

Always reflect on life itself. Meditate on what makes you better and stronger.

Have a great weekend!

Coconut oil is a precious gift of nature made from coconuts. It has a million and one benefit for the body, skin, hair and pretty much anything you can think of. Using coconut for your hair can provide your hair with a lot more good than you can ever imagine.

Moisture retention – Coconut oil has a high moisture retaining capacity which helps the hair retain moisture and also seal in moisture thereby making hair soft and avoiding breakage.

Cooling Effect – Coconut Oil has a cooling effect on both the hair and scalp. It can soothe people with hot heads or those suffering from severe scalp sweating.

Styling – Coconut oil can be a good styling oil as well, as it melts on heating and condensing when cooled. So when you apply it on your hair, it thins and spreads evenly due to the heat on the scalp and as the hair comes in contact with air, the oil on the hair condenses, thus working as a styling gel or cream.

Lice Protection – Lice is a very common pest in the hair and can cause embarrassment for anyone. They also have a tendency to come back again and again. While there are several chemical products that can take care of lice from one’s hair, it can also damage the hair and scalp in the process. Wet hair and apply coconut oil and comb through the hair to get rid of lice. The coconut oil protects the hair from falling off while combing when wet.

Hair care for dry hair and scalp – Coconut oil is a great ingredient to combat dry hair and scalp as it keeps the hair soft and shiny especially dry hair. It can also serve as a great from of hair conditioner.
