A lot of women dream of having beautiful, soft and feminine hands. Unfortunately, due to the everyday demands that require the use of those extremities, some women struggle to keep their hands looking and feeling beautiful. Women often experience overdrying of the skin on their hands due to unprotected use of household cleaning solutions and just the general task of daily hand washing. Feminine-looking hands, however, are possible with the right care.

Things You'll Need

Wash your hands with moisturizing soap and warm water to remove all dirt and oil.

Fill a small bowl with warm water, and add a few drops of olive oil for extra moisturizer. Soak your hands in the bowl for five minutes.

Put about 1 1/2 tsp. of sugar on your hands with a little of the warm water, and rub your hands together. Rub the sugar all over the front and back of your hands for a few minutes.

Rinse your hands well with warm water, and gently pat them dry with a hand towel.

Apply hand lotion or petroleum jelly to your hands. Allow the skin to absorb most of the application before resuming your normal activities.
