    A hand bath with squeezed lemon halves softens the water and also the skin on the hands. Even rubbing the hands with the inside of a squeezed lemon clarifies the skin and makes it supple.
     
    For dirty hands, housewives have always recommended a paste of powdered sugar and some lemon juice, as a gentle cleanser. At the same time, this will also soften rough skin.

    For beautiful, supple hands, do not dry them off after washing them but instead rub them thoroughly with lemon juice and carefully massage it in. There is no need to rinse the hands off afterwards.
