Home Spa Manicure

Treat your hands respectfully with the ultimate home spa manicure.

For maximum benefit, begin by removing nail polish, and lightly filing nails with an emery board to a smooth curve.

If you have time, combine the three treatments.

Hand and Nail Soak

A simple concoction containing buttermilk and almond oil will exfoliate, condition your hands and stimulate nail growth.
Store preparation in a glass container in the refrigerator. Gently shake before use.

  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup warm distilled water
  • 1 teaspoon almond oil

Combine ingredients with a whisk. Soak hands for 15 minutes, then rinse and pat dry.

Softener

Mix:

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon vitamin E oil

Combine ingredients and massage into nails and cuticles.

Store remaining preparation in a glass container in a cool, dark place.

Apricot Hand Mask

  • 1/4 cup dried apricots
  • 1/4 cup plain yoghurt
  • 1 tablespoon honey

Blend ingredients until smooth. Spread mask onto hands and leave for 20 minutes. Rinse with warm water and pat dry.
