So technically this Fast Fix Friday takes longer than 5 minutes …. depending on how long you sleep tonight.
I’m no beauty expert and this definitely isn’t a beauty column, but I do have a nack for time saving tips which extends in to the beauty department.
With the cold weather, my hands always seem to get extra dry. Standard lotion just doesn’t do the trick. But I found a solution. If you’re willing to look a little goofy during your sleep I can guarantee soft moisturized hands by the time you wake up!
All you need is a jar of petroleum jelly & old cotton gloves. (Use gloves not mittens.) Yes you can buy specialty gel filled spa gloves, but much to my excitement, I found my cheaper version works better!
I opted for my old Miami University red gloves that surprisingly don’t seem go with any of my dress coats :). Now I think of my alma mater any time my cuticles are getting bad.
Simply slather on petroleum jelly all over your hands, slip them in to your gloves and hit the hay! The gloves help hold in the moisture all throughout the night. You’ll have softer hands by the time your alarm goes off.
Wishing your beautiful soft hands and a good night sleep!
