Homemade Hand Exfoliating Scrub

What do oatmeal, an egg and lemon juice make? If you’re thinking yummy cookies you haven’t been reading my beauty series this week!!! Ya see, while most people use such ingredients to cook with, some friends and I used them as a relaxing hand exfoliater and loved it. Sure it’s a little gooey and gets all over (towels required!) but it works and we all gave it a hearty thumbs up. This gently exfoliating scrub will make your hands noticeably softer and smoother.

Here’s how you can do it:

In a small bowl, mash:

  • 1/4 of a peeled avocado
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 tablespoons oatmeal
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

Combine well and apply to your hands. Leave the mixture on for 20 minutes, then rinse in warm water and pat dry.
