First Step: Use olive oil to smooth over hands.
Second Step: Use your favorite exfoliating cleanser and smooth over hands (may need to use a little water to smooth easier). Rinse.
Third Step: Use your favorite lotion and now you have satin hands without spending too much money.
You will find most of these items in your home already!

The best and cheapest exfoliate out there is sugar. Brown or white, sugar gives that "scratch" needed to break away dead skin. I use sugar as an exfoliate for "satin hands" by mixing the sugar with a lotion or olive oil, and rub for 2-3 minutes, then wash off and apply lotion after drying.

I'm looking for a cheap way to recreate the Satin Hands (Mary Kay) experience. Any suggestions?

I recently tried and really like a cream from Yes to Carrots (it's called C You Through the Dry Spell). And I see they have a scrub called Feel the C Pampering Hand and Nail Spa. I'm hoping Santa will bring me some for Christmas! Mmmmm. Now you have me wanting to go work on my hands. :-) (12/11/2009)
