Lemonade Hands Show Me Yours I'll Show You Mine

Updated on July 28, 2009

Dori, your hands are rough

My grandmother felt it necessary to tell me yesterday that my hands were too rough. I was changing her at the hospital. As usual, granny always has a cure or remedy for everything.

Why do you spend alot of money on hand lotions, she asked?

"Let me tell you what to do"

with a silent but very long sigh I sat back to listen. Granny always had remedies from back in the day as with most grandmothers are irritated by all the commercials for expensive hand creams when it is right in your kitchen.

Simple recipe and 5 minutes A Day

Take One Tablespoon of Lemon Juice or squeeze a Fresh Lemon, the idea is to be cheap so unless you are growing lemons I stay with the Lemon Juice.

One Tablespoon of Sugar

Put them both in the palms of your hands and rub for five minutes. The heat from the friction will melt the sugar and exfoliate, tighten and smooth skin. After five minutes, wash with warm water.

That's it and the results are amazing!

Iam going to do this for five days and invite anyone men or women to join me. Take a before and after picture, let me know how it is going and I will hub our project? Will You Join Me? Send me your pics of your hands!  Men too, shhh we wont tell anybody you care if your hands are rough.

      I in addition to my guys hpepenad to be viewing the nice tactics located on the blog while before long got an awful suspicion I had not thanked you for those strategies. My women ended up for this reason glad to learn them and have in effect really been taking pleasure in them. Thanks for indeed being indeed accommodating and for opting for varieties of nice themes millions of individuals are really desperate to understand about. Our own sincere regret for not saying thanks to you earlier.

      You need to combine eanitg healthy and exercising in a right way. You should exercise. Choose stomach exercises to get flat belly mostly and do them regularly. I do exercises 4 days a week and 3 rest days. If you do serious exercise program to yourself you can get flat stomach in 2 1/2 months.
