1. Exfoliate your hands

To get rid of the rough dead skin, you should exfoliate it. Achieve this with the use of coconut oil mixed with sugar. After mixing, rub on your palm, spreading the mixture until it covers your skin. Do this for several minutes before you rinse off with water.


2. Moisturise often

Contrary to what you may believe, your skin needs more moisture and less water. Water leaves your hand dry whereas moisturisers help to keep it feeling soft and supple. Therefore, you should always have moisturiser handy. However, too much moisturising would prevent your hands from using their own moisture. So, you should moisturise in small doses.


3. Soak in egg yolk

Eggs are great for many things beyond eating, and one includes improving the way your hands feel. Separate an egg into egg yolk and whites. Put the egg yolk into a small bowl, and set the egg whites aside. Place the egg yolk in a bowl and mix with one teaspoon of honey, 1/2 teaspoon of almond powder, and a few drops of rosewater. Massage your hands with the mixture and allow to sit in for 10 minutes. Afterwards, rinse your hands with water and pat dry with a clean towel.



4. Overnight steaming with socks and vaseline

While sleeping, your body goes through a lot of changes you can benefit from. One way your hands can benefit from this is through overnight steam with vaseline and socks. Begin with a gentle wash with a mild soap or a hand wash, then rinse with water and leave dry. After this, massage the vaseline or lotion into your hands before you wear clean socks over it. Afterwards, go to bed, sleep like a baby and watch your hands look like those belonging to one the next morning.


5. Almond oil and butter mix

To get rid of cracked skin, mix two teaspoons of butter and one teaspoon of almond oil into a bowl. Rub the mixture into your hands until your skin absorbs it. Let it sit in for at least 20 minutes before rinsing with water. Pat dry with a clean towel.


You may also use sunscreen on your hands while avoiding direct hot water contact. Another tip is to protect them from house chores, but if you grew up in an African home then this might be a death sentence. However, you can do your chores while wearing protective gloves. Just ensure you follow our tips to keep it look soft always even after a laborious day.
