Natural cosmetics, like kings and queens Part 7, beautiful hands

Natural cosmetics, like kings and queens Part 7, beautiful hands

Inspired by the beauty routine of Marie Antoinette to have soft and beautiful hands, we’ll see the recipe, simple and effective, for a little different hand cream, the solid cream, that can be kept always with you
The skin of the hands is often stressed because it comes into contact with detergents during the washing of clothes, dishes or floors, with soaps, that should clean them and protect us from the aggression of bacteria, and with sudden changes in temperatures. For this reason, it may be very easy that the skin of the hands becomes dry, thick and scaly, with wounds or irritations. Cosmetic products help a lot to protect this part of the body. And the great kings and queens of the past offer interesting possibilities of inspiration to help you take care of your skin in a natural way, with few, but effective, ingredients avoiding chemical, irritating or aggressive substances that are often present in cosmetic products on the market, according to the articles we are dedicating to the INCI of creams, shampoos, serums and lotions. Marie Antoinette, queen of France, was, in her time, a true model of attractiveness thanks to her beauty, on which she spent a long time. Marie Antoinette liked in particular a special gift given to her by a perfumer, Jean Louis Fargeon, a pair of gloves soaked in almond oil and rose water, designed to soften and take care of the hands of the queen while she was going to ride. So, with some changes to adapt it to the current time, you have at your disposal an amazing beauty recipe that you can prepare by yourself, something special and precious but also so simple to make and perfect for everyone, since its preparation does not require the phase of emulsion, a solid cream for hands that you can always have with you in a small box and use when necessary. In a small bowl mix 5 grams of shea butter, with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties (Tzu-Kai Lin et al, Int J Mol Sci, Jan 2018), 10 ml of sweet almond oil, against skin aging and able to repair the natural skin barrier (Tzu-Kai Lin et al, Int J Mol Sci, Jan 2018), and 5 grams of beeswax. Let all the ingredients mix and melt on a very low heat, then remove from heat and let stand for a minute, add 5 drops of essential oil of rose, healing, anti-inflammatory and anti-aging, but in alternative you can use the essential oil of lavender, antiseptic and very fragrant. Stir quickly and pour the liquid in cookie molds, let it become solid and your cream is ready, like a pastry! To apply it, simply hold it in your hands and the heat of the body will melt just enough cream to spread a thin layer on the skin. The solid cream is comfortable and practical and also very effective so much that we will dedicate a video blog that will be released soon!
