Who Wants Beautiful Hands?

Bright and Smooth Hand Mask

Use this simple recipe consistently (2x per week) – your hands will love you (and you will love your hands!) You’ll see gradual fading of age spots and hyperpigmentation and your hands will be touchably soft and smooth.

You can also use this formula on your face - it offers the same benefits, plus it makes your pores appear more refined. It’s great for all skin types (except very sensitive skin). Simply pull up your hair and apply the mixture to your face and neck in the same manner as you would to your hands – then relax for 20-30 minutes (do not move around with this mixture on your face – it’s a little messy). Rinse and ta-dah – beautiful!

Mix this recipe as needed, do not store.

What you’ll need:

  • 2 tbsp finely ground oatmeal (or oat flour)
  • 1 tbsp plain yogurt
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice (or fresh raw apply, pineapple or strawberry pulp)

Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and stir until it forms a spreadable paste. Let it thicken for a minute or two. (If it’s too thick, add a drop or two of water – if it’s too thin, add a little more oatmeal.)

Apply the mixture to the back of your hands and relax for 20-30 minutes. Rinse with cool water. Pat dry and apply a good hand cream.

NOTE: The lemon juice (and other fruit acids) in this recipe can make your skin more sensitive to the sun, so please protect your beautiful skin with a good sunscreen.
