At a time when our hands are in permanent contact with the hydroalcoholic gel and washed many times, we must moisturize them daily. To make these creams even more natural and to experience the pleasure of “homemade,” we have selected 5 recipes for you that can suit everyone.
We know that our hands need hydration more than ever. Rather than buying yet another moisturizer, why not make it at home? The “homemade” is indeed a more than perfect alternative to ensure the naturalness of our cream, and ultimately to obtain the satisfaction of taking care of the well-being of your skin yourself.
For that, a few ingredients and a little time are enough to make THE cream adapted to our needs. Of course, a moisturizer is also soothing, antioxidant, regenerating, with anti-aging powers or even in solid form. It’s up to you to choose from these 5 100% natural recipes make easily and quickly at home.
