Recipe: Lemon Post-Winter Hand Treatment

This simple eco-luscious recipe is from Kara DiCamillo of Treehugger

“…try this homemade solution that works overnight. It consists of sugar that gently sloughs away rough patches, coconut oil that moisturizes and lemon juice that lightens pigment discoloration and brightens skin. We bet it works for feet as well if you’re getting them ready to make their debut for the beach season.”

½ cup coconut oil
½ cup sugar
Juice of 1 lemon
Cotton gloves


Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Rub the mixture over your hands for at least 1 minute, scrubbing like you were washing them. Use a paper towel to brush any excess sugar from your skin. Slide your hands into the gloves and leave them on overnight. By morning, the oil should be absorbed and your hands will be ready to start the day.
