The Natural Way
Suparna Trikha Dewan has natural solutions to all your beauty problems
I am a 32-year-old woman. Could please tell me how to keep my hands soft and smooth naturally? I have rough hands. Cosmetic hand creams only have a temporary effect.
I spend a lot of time in the hills, in colder climes, searching for herbs and new natural ingredients to use in my line of beauty products. As a result, my hands get very dry as well. So, what I usually do is make this wonderful hand-wrap which makes my hands feel soft and smooth in a matter of minutes. Take 2 tsp full cream, 2 tsp honey, 1 tsp glycerine and 1 tsp olive oil. Beat all of these ingredients together, then add 1 tsp of sugar to this and apply to the hands and arms. Wrap with a damp hot towel for 20 minutes and remove to massage the granules of sugar into the skin. Wash off with milk and then water and see the magic for yourself.

I do a three-step cleansing process for my skin. I wash, tone and moisturise. A lot of people don't realise how important this is. However, I make sure to do this every single day, no matter how busy I am. I also make sure that I eat healthy and have lots of water in order to keep my skin healthy.
