  1. I love making my own lotions and creams. A little goat's milk cream base, a nice carrier oil like jojoba or safflower oil, and an essential oil for a little punch and fragrance, lavender being my favorite, and I have something I can share with friends.

    It all goes great with some of the home spa facials that I whiz up in the blender. I have a few interesting combinations on my blogger blog as well!

    You can cut a leaf from the plant and rub it on your hands.I have very dry skin on my hands because I have psoriasis. I saw an article on the web written by a doctor who said every time you wash your hands, towel dry them but leave them slightly damp, then rub a very small amount of Vaseline into your hands. After I do that, I use a paper towel to blot the excess. It sounds like it would be greasy, but you only use a very small amount of Vaseline, so it isn't and it works great. It is the water in combination with the Vaseline that makes it work

    Get some heavy duty hand cream and also get some cotton gloves. Put the hand cream on before you go to sleep and then put on the cotton gloves. Do this every night when possible. The gloves you can find at wal mart in the glove section or you can get some in the nail polish section specifically made for what I mentioned.

    Honey and Melted Chocolate is also fairly good for your hair and hands, it can be used on your face, but it might leave red bumps if you have sensitive skin. Just put around a pound of chocolate in the microwave, then put a can of honey in it too, then mix. Smear it all over your face and exfoliate away!!! Works GREAT!!!

    You need to get rid of dirt and dead skin cells by exfoliating your hands. Exfoliating also improves circulation and keeps your hands looking pretty and young.
