Thinking about pampering your hands this weekend? We’ve compiled our favorite DIY hand mask recipes to help with all your concerns!

 
Lighten & Soften Dark Spots

“If only I used sunscreen more often when I was younger”... we’ve all had those thoughts at least once, but you don’t need to worry - this hand mask will help to brighten those spots and leave your hands softer than baby’s skin.

Honey & Lemon For Hand Care

What you’ll need:

2 teaspoons lemon juice (citric acid helps to brighten dark spots)
2 teaspoons honey (antioxidants to help slow down aging)
2 teaspoons baking soda (exfoliates to reveal fresh, soft skin)

Just combine all the ingredients in a small bowl and apply to your hands - we’d recommend spending a few minutes rubbing it in before letting it sit for 10 minutes & rinse in warm water (hold off on the soap this time).
