Winter Hands, Saved: An Awesome Treatment Using Two Simple Items In Your Kitchen

by Well & Good

Hands feeling dry, looking chapped and inspiring the purchase of a pair of Downton Abbey gloves? This DIY Sugar and Honey Hand Healer will fix that. The recipe comes from author, beauty savant and The Beauty Bean founder Alexis Wolfer. It calls for raw honey, which has intense moisturizing powers and is antibacterial (making it great for cuticles), and sugar to gently slough your dry skin and return it to a state of smooth. “But please, do not use it if you have eczema, psoriasis, cuts or a rash,” Wolfer says.

This exfoliant is just what your hands need for winter—or their close-up. According to Wolfer’s new book, Radiant Bride , hands flaunting a new ring might need more than mittens to keep them looking presentable this time of year. Ditto the rest of us, too.
