One of my favorite things to do is make homemade bread and pizza dough. There is something about getting my hands into the dough and working it that is a great stress reliever. Make some bread the next time you need to let some frustration out!
What does that have to do with young looking hands?
I have always shaped my breads with olive oil before rising and love getting my hands into it. One thing I noticed, aside from the awesome homemade bread, was after making a batch of bread, my hands were soft and pretty.
Since discovering the softening properties of olive oil on the skin, I have experimented and quit washing off the olive oil from my hands after making bread with awesome results. It works miracles on elbows.
Going a step further, using the concept of "Satin Hands" from Mary Kay Cosmetics, and adding sugar to olive oil in equal parts is excellent for sloughing off dry or dead skin, leaving hands feeling silky and beautiful.
A little goes a long way . . . 1/4 teaspoon of each is a good measure.
Try it sometime!
