DIY Natural Hand Cream (Video)

Care for sore, chapped hands with this do-it-yourself natural hand cream.

By Gina DeBacker

Caring for chapped, sore hands is just as important as caring for the rest of our bodies. Especially in the summertime when we've been keeping busy digging in our gardens and spending time outdoors. But what we slather on our bodies is absorbed into our skin, meaning that you should be cautious about what body-care products you choose to use. A lot of conventional hand lotions use ingredients, such as phthalates, parabens and petroleum byproducts, that have been linked to infertility and even cancer. Instead of buying a product with a laundry list of ingredients that you can't even pronounce, just have fun at home making your own.
