Your hands and feet are often exposed, allowing them to become dry and hard, especially your hands, which are often dealing with everyday elements. Emu Oil Benefits claims that emu oil penetrates deeply into the skin, smoothing the layers.Beauty Products Made Easy also suggests that cocoa butter is fast absorbing while soothing dry and rough skin. You need to moisturize your hands and feet at least daily. The key is trapping the moisture into the skin and allowing it to absorb deeply into the layers, keeping skin softer for longer.
Things You'll Need:
2 oz. bottle of 100 percent pure emu oil
8 oz. bottle of 100 percent cocoa butter or 100 percent shea butter
1 pair of cotton or Lycra gloves
1 pair of cotton or Lycra socks
Moisturizing Your Hands
Wet your hands with warm water to open the pores.
Dry your hands quickly so that they are still warm after dried.
Pour two to three drops of emu oil onto the tips of your fingers.
Rub the oil into the top of your hands, not the palms. Emu oil is considered a carrying oil and will pull any other product added with it deeper into layers of the skin.
Pour a quarter-size amount of 100 percent pure cocoa butter into the palms of your hands. Massage the butter over the emu oil into your hands.
Put on gloves.
Go to bed and remove the gloves in the morning. Repeat nightly or every other night.
Moisturizing Your Feet
Follow the same first five steps as you did for your hands, only apply them to the tops of your feet, heels and even soles, since your feet tend to be dry and coarse all over.
Put on socks instead of gloves.
Wear them as you relax at night, reading, watching TV or while you sleep. Repeat this every night or every other night as well.
