Skin Care Tip: Hand care with olive oil

submitted by Marlene, New York, NY USA

Tip description / details:
Due to years of neglect and not protecting my hands from the elements - cold weather or dishwashing. My advanced age aside. My hands are not pretty. The skin is weathered and wrinkly. But, I have discovered a remedy. Olive oil.

Extra virgin olive oil, cosmetic gloves. Pan for heating.

How to prepare:
In pan, heat up about 2 tbsp of olive to very warm. Do not allow the oil to smoke. Just hot enough to touch.

How to use:
Before bedtime. Massage the oil into hands working well between fingers and nail beds - kneading and stretching fingers. Put gloves on. Sleep with gloves on. For me doing this 3 days in a row produces remarkable effects. However, not permanent. Must be done with regularity for more lasting results.

Results (observed by submitter):
Smoother, less wrinkly skin. I haven't experimented yet. But, I would assume this would have effect on the neck also.

Costs involved:
