I don’t know about you, but my hands get very dry and chapped in the winter. Here is a quick, easy & frugal way to fit a “deep moisturization” into your routine.
Simply slather your hands with your regular hand lotion, slip on your yellow latex dishwashing gloves (we all have them, right?) and then wash the dishes.
The glove will keep the lotion right next to the skin and allow it plenty of time to seep in while also providing a “sauna” like effect-especially if you are washing in hot water-that opens the pores and allows the lotion to penetrate even more deeply.
Ahh. That’s better! And it didn’t cost you a fortune either.
Don’t have any lotion? Never fear-there is an even more frugal option. Believe it or not plenty of folks out there use plain old olive oil or even vegetable shortening instead.
