The daily grind can do a number on your hands and nails. Not everyone has the time or money for a weekly salon visit, and even if we did, it’s unclear exactly what is in the products they use (likely chemicals we should be avoiding anyway).
This simple nail and hand soak includes only three ingredients: lemon, Castile soap and olive oil. It is all natural and completely effective. The secret is in the olive oil.
Olive oil contains vitamin E to keep skin smooth, hydroxytyrosol to keep skin protected from free radical damage and antioxidants to protect against premature aging. Give it a try — there’s a reason olive oil is a key ingredient in many organic beauty products.
