Did You Know - Moisturizing Gloves?

Thursday, January 14, 2016 May Nguyen 4 Comments

Did you know that in the 1800’s, European women used to sleep with moisturizing gloves brushed with almond oil, egg yolk and rose water? Some of them even wrapped their hands in raw meat to tenderize their hands overnight. Modernize women like ourselves can stop that regimen and just use a good hand cream – phew!

Tip: Always try to apply hand cream after washing hands – and twice a day if possible. Carrying a travel size is great in your purse because it encourages you not to ignore using it.

oh this sounds interesting!! i love slipping on soft socks after moisturizing my feet!

i know they still sell gloves so people can do this method, but for some reason i dont like wearing gloves, even in the winter time...i'll stick with my hand cream!
