TMR Frugal Living Tip #21: Use Sugar to Exfoliate Hands!

 

Today’s thrifty tip is to use sugar to exfoliate hands! Yep plain white sugar works great and is very inexpensive.

You will be amazed at how soft your hands will feel afterwards. I use this hand treatment once a week.

First I squeeze out a small amount of hand lotion (Vaseline Intensive Care works great) into one hand. Then I add a small amount of white sugar.

Next rub your hands together as if you are washing your hands. Do not get them wet at this point! The sugar has to really work into your skin first. I rub my hands for about 2-3 minutes.

Finally rinse your hands under warm water and pat dry with a soft towel.

Many companies are now making similar products at a not so affordable price. I will stick to using plain white sugar to exfoliate hands.

I get lots of compliments on how nice and soft my hands look and feel. My husband also uses this treatment as his hands get rough from his job. He has a very physically demanding job.

NOTE: Please do not use this method on your face. Your body and even feet would be fine. Your face is too sensitive.
