Eco-Tip: Keeping Your Hands Fresh Through Winter
Last year as spring was beginning we featured a tip on how to soothe those post-winter hands naturally with a recipe that included lemon. This tip features papaya and comes from San Francisco’s Lavande Nail Spa. Papaya is rich in alpha hydroxy acid, which is a natural exfoliant, and will keep our hands smooth and soft through the rest of the winter months.
1 ripe papaya
1 cup plain yogurt
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon grapeseed oil
Plastic bags or gloves
Combine the papaya, yogurt, honey and grapeseed oil and apply the mixture to both hands. Slip them into the plastic bags or gloves. After 15 minutes, rinse with water.
