DIY Hand Scrub & Hand Mask

DIY Natural Hand Scrub and Hand Mask | INDISHA

Delicious! A DIY hand scrub and hand mask. For silky soft hands. The scrub removes dead skin cells. The mask nourishes & cares. Tip for a (together) spa day at home, on holiday or with friends' weekend.

For the scrub and mask I have chosen ingredients that you probably have at home, so you can get started straight away. Sugar, honey, oil and possibly coffee powder.

Don't feel like making a mask yourself? At the bottom of the blog you will find a few tips for ready-made masks and a scrub to use.

This pampering for your hands is not an unnecessary luxury in autumn and winter.

Enough talking 😉. To work!

Hand scrub

DIY Natural Hand Scrub | INDISHA

Ingredients (for 1 person)

  • 1.5 tablespoon of coconut blossom, palm, cane or granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon coconut, olive, jojoba or nut oil
  • For a coffee scrub: 2 tablespoons of coffee powder

Preparation & use

  • Mix all ingredients into a paste
  • Apply into your palms
  • Make gentle 'hand washing' movements with the scrub (do not scrub too hard, otherwise you will damage the protective layer of your skin)
  • Rinse your hands with lukewarm water. Or gently remove the scrub with a damp, lukewarm washcloth. If some oil remains on your hands, that's fine! That takes care of your hands.

Hand mask

DIY Natural Hand Mask | INDISHA

Ingredients (for 1 person)

  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon (liquid) coconut oil or olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon honey (for a super luxurious mask - Manuka honey)
  • 2 washable cotton panty gloves or if you don't have them, plastic or household gloves. Or plastic food bags or cling film (less environmentally friendly)

Preparation & use

  • Mix all ingredients into a thick paste
  • Apply a (tea) spoonful of mask to one hand (you can apply this with the rounded side of the spoon or with a brush if you have one) and massage it gently.
  • Put on a glove (or wrap foil around your hands - so that you can still move it to provide your other hand with a mask)
  • Repeat the application for your other hand
  • Leave on for 10-20 minutes (or if you want a care boost - overnight)
  • Rinse the remaining mask with lukewarm water or wipe with a damp lukewarm washcloth. Feel your hands! They should be super soft!
