Beautiful hands are just as important as a beautiful face.
We focus so often on our face that we often forget about our hands. No matter what kind of work you do, you're more than likely using your hands on a daily basis. Dry, cracked hands at any age is far from appealing, but don't worry it happens to the best of us -- especially in the winter time.
Just like we exfoliate our face ever so often, it's also beneficial to exfoliate your hands with a scrub from time to time to remove dead skin. Although there are some amazing hand scrubs you can purchase in stores, why not be hands on and make your own hand scrub. It's always more fun when you do it yourself and with that being said -- here are two amazing hand scrub recipes that will leave your hands smooth, rejuvenated and smelling amazing.

1 tbsp coconut oil
2 tbsp raw honey
1/4 cup sea salt
