Dump three tbsp. sugar and one tbsp. olive oil into a bowl. Mix the two together until you have a gritty paste.
Stick your fingers in the concoction and gather it up. Rub the sweet, oily remedy into your scaly hands. Get ready to work---you need to keep it up for five to seven minutes.
Plunge your smoothed hands into lukewarm water to wash away gritty residue and pat dry with a towel. Slather on moisturizing cream and enjoy your new skin. Repeat as needed.
Pour one cup lemon juice and one cup water into a bowl. Plunge your suffering skin into the mixture for two or three minutes.
Remove your hands from the lemon water and pour one tsp. olive oil into your palm. Get your massage on. Lavish those hands with attention.
Pat your softened skin with a towel to remove excess oil. Voila! Admire your lovely hands.
Keep a tube of moisturizing cream close by---in your bag or a desk drawer---and slick up your hands when they feel dry.
If your hands are cracked and split, please see a doctor. You definitely don't want to sugar-scrub or lemon-juice those sensitive hands.
