Home Remedies Rough Hands

  • For those chapped hands, try some honey. Wet your hands and shake off the water without actually drying them. Then rub some honey all over your hands. When they're completely honey-coated, let them stay that way for five minutes. (We would recommend you read the paper to pass the time, but turning the pages would definitely present problems.)

Next, rub your hands as you rinse them under tepid water. Then pat your hands dry. Do this every day until you want to clap hands for your un-chapped hands.

  • Tired of being called "lobster claw"? Take 1 teaspoon of granulated sugar in the palm of your hand and add a few drops of castor oil and enough fresh lemon juice to totally moisten the sugar. Vigorously massage your hands together for a few minutes. Rinse with tepid water and pat dry. This hand scrub should leave hands smooth and, in the process, remove stains.

Hand Cleansers

  • One simple cleanser consists of scrubbing your hands with a palmful of dry baking soda, then rinsing with tepid water .
  • For another cleanser, take a palmful of oatmeal, moistened with milk. Rub and rinse.

Farmer's Friend

  • This remedy for rough, chapped and soiled hands is a favorite among farmers. In a bowl combine about ¼ cup of cornmeal, 1 tablespoon of water and enough apple cider vinegar to make the mixture the consistency of a loose paste. Rub this mildly abrasive mixture all over your hands for 10 minutes. Rinse with tepid water and pat dry.

This treatment not only can remove dirt. it can also soften, soothe and heal the hands.

  • In a jar, combine equal parts of tomato juice, lemon juice and glycerin (available at drugstores). Let one hand massage the other with the mixture. Rinse with tepid water.
  • The ideal remedy for people with dry hands is having their own sheep as a pet. This is because sheep's wool contains lanolin. By rubbing your hands across the animal's back every so often, you'll keep them in great shape.

Clammy Hands

  • In a basin, combine ½ gallon of water with ½ cup of alcohol and put your palms in the mixture. After a few minutes, rinse your hands with cool water and pat dry. This is especially useful for clammy-palmed politicians on the campaign trail.
