Le Savon Free

I'm going to teach you how to get really soft hands. For free. I mean, I'm going to teach you for free, and you can do it for free. I've had many, many years of manicures, pedicures and product testing at the mall.

So, go to the kitchen. Yes, the kitchen. Get yourself the following:
  • Olive oil

  • Sugar

  • A spoon

  • Lotion soap

  • Hand lotion

  • This is NOT an exact science. It's going to work by loosely following these directions.

  • Stand over the sink.

  • Pour about a tablespoon of olive oil onto your palms. Rub. Rub. Rub. Everywhere, up to your elbows if you want!

  • Dump a spoonful of sugar onto your palms. Rub. Rub. Rub. Everywhere, your cuticles, your knuckles.

  • Pump some lotion soap onto your palms. Rub. Rub. Rub. Are you getting the hang of this?!

  • Now, turn the water on and let it get warm. Rinse.

  • Put on hand lotion.

  • I'm telling you - Baby's butt.

    I'm going to try this today. Because just yesterday I realized I have the hands of an 80 year old woman...who might be a scary witch from a fairy tale.

    Now I feel like I need to take and email you a picture so you'll know just how bad it really is. =)

    Anyway, thanks for the timely advice.
