Wash your hands

After a stressful day, your hands are stressed too.

Hand Spa

Hand Spas are expensive, so why not do it at home? All you need is a bowl of warm water. You can add your favorite aroma scent to get a spa like ambiance. Next, you need to soak your hands for about ten minutes. Also, if you have spare honey lying around you can put an ample amount on your palms and rub them gently together. Soak again.

Hand Cleansing/Exfoliating

After your spa experience get moisturizing soap (bar or liquid) and put some on a wash cloth or a soft bath stone. You can choose any moisturizing soap that you like; recommended soaps are apricot and Aloe Vera. Using your wash cloth or bath stone gently massage your palms, the back of the palms and between fingers to relieve stress and tension. Then, rinse your hands and pat dry with a soft towel.
