Shaking hands, holding hands, giving high fives — you avoid all of these things because your palms are rougher than the unshaven chin of a hairy gentleman.
Most of us tend to focus on fending off wrinkles to keep our face smooth, but not too many of us give the palms of our hands much-needed attention.
The palms are prone to ending up rough because we use them all the time. They also come into contact with products containing harsh chemicals that can leave them dry and irritated.
You can purchase super expensive hand lotions and creams to deal with those rough palms of yours. Or you can simply use things that can be already found in your home.
Without any more ado, below are some of the best home remedies for rough palms. Although super easy on the pocket, they can definitely impress!
Brown Sugar and Olive Oil
Combining equal amounts of brown sugar and olive oil enables you to come up with the cheapest exfoliating agent for those palms of yours that are as rough as sandpaper.
All you have to do is put your homemade brown sugar scrub on the palm of your hand, and then rub your palms together. Rinse off under running water afterwards. Do this twice or thrice a week for best results.
Salt and Lemon Juice
If your palms are really, really rough, you can make a tougher exfoliating agent by mixing salt with a little lemon juice. Salt will scour off excess dead skin cells, and lemon juice will soften and repair skin.
