Our hands do a lot of work and we rarely pay them back. Here is a great salt soak that you can use for hands and feet before a manicure pedicure or any time. The ingredients are super simple. You can even make a soak with things from your kitchen. Here is flower petal version. This can be stored dry for months or even packaged and given as gifts.
Store in an air tight container. When using you may want to add a teaspoon of olive oil before pouring in water while soaking.
Soak hands and feet until water cools. Use a cuticle tool to gently push back cuticles and allow nails to thoroughly dry before applying polish.
