Soft palms are universally appreciated. If you’re naturally blessed with them, that’s wonderful. However, if your hands have become rough due to daily tasks, household chores, or any other factors, consider giving this a try.


Things required : 

  • Coconut oil 
  • Salt
  • Lukewarm water 
  • Moisturiser
  • Lemon juice

Procedure : 

  • Wash your hands clean and dry.
  • Pour an adequate amount of coconut oil into your palms.
  • Take some salt in your palms.
  • Gently rub your palms against each other.
  • Do it at least for ten minutes. Your fingers, nails scrub every corner of your palms. 
  • After you are done, wash your hands in lukewarm water.
  • You can add few drops of lemon juice to the water. It helps to remove the greasiness.
  • Then pat dry and apply the moisturiser of your choice. 
  • You can do this to your feet too. 
  • Follow this regime twice a week and see the difference. Soft palms- you will love them.
  • It’s better to do this just before you go to bed.

Coconut oil has anti-inflammatory properties and increases collagen production. It helps to bolster the skin’s protective barrier layer, trapping moisture inside and keeping the skin supple and hydrated.

Salt absorbs dirt, grime and toxins and cleanses skin’s pores deeply.
