DIY Hydrating Hand Cream

Our hands go through a lot throughout our lives. They type, text, do our hair and makeup, apply skin care… They tie our children’s shoes, give massages, write out sweet messages on birthday cards… the list is truly endless.

Many of us work with our hands throughout our lives as well. For something on our bodies that does so much, it’s surprising how we don’t treat our hands as well as our faces. Hands dry out, crack, wrinkle, and age faster than most of our bodies.

So, why not treat our hands to some DIY hydrating hand cream once in a while?

This recipe has all natural ingredients with vitamins and fatty acids to help our hands. It prevents many signs of pre-mature aging to keep hands moisturized and well taken care of.

Shea butter provides deep, penetrating moisture, while coconut oil adds moisture and locks it in.

Almond oil provides additional moisturizing benefits, as well as skin care vitamins.

Lavender oil not only has antibacterial properties, it also provides a soothing scent that relaxes the mind and body.

What You Need

How to Make it

Using a double boiler on low-medium heat, melt together the raw shea butter and virgin coconut oil.

Remove from the heat, and let it sit for about fifteen minutes to cool off.

Add in the sweet almond oil and lavender essential oil.

Using a stand mixer or hand mixer, blend together for a few minutes.

Pour the mixture into a container of your choice. You can either let it sit in room temperature for several hours to cool, or put it in your fridge for an hour or two.

To use your hydrating hand cream, take a small amount and melt it between your hands by rubbing them together. Apply to both hands using a circular massaging motion, to deeply penetrate and provide long lasting moisture.
