Warm Cream Hand Treatment

Yesterday we made a sugar scrub to exfoliate the hands, making any subsequent treatments more effective. Today I wanted to make a product that would be applied to the hands, then the hands are covered with gloves and wrapped in warm towels. This is often done for pedicures and manicures, and I find I really like that. It is relaxing and calming.

Come join me for this wonderful hand treatment! I wanted a product that would hydrate and soften the hands. I thought that Hydrovance would do the job spectacularly. After recently getting a burn on my hand that blistered beautifully, I can say that hydration and protection of the skin help it heal quickly. While we aren’t looking to heal, we are looking to protect and hydrate the skin, keeping it soft and supple.

I also wanted a little lanolin in this formulation to create a barrier. This barrier is intended to retain the water that is already in the skin and to prevent the skin from drying out. I love how much of a difference the addition of a little lanolin makes when you want to hydrate and protect skin.

In this formulation, I also included a little beeswax to create a little drag. This would allow the cream to be slowly and deliberately massaged into the skin. I think a formulation with a little drag makes me slow down and enjoy the moment of self care. That is the part that I find so absolutely soothing.

Weigh everything except the preservative into a microwave safe container. Heat gently until everything is liquid. Mix well. I prefer to use an immersion blender. After letting the cream cool, add the preservative. If you desire, you can also add fragrance at this time.
