Washing your hands as soon as you come in contact with another person, touching something that the other person gave you and after coming back home is highly recommended. Especially considering that more and more cases of Coronavirus are coming to light every day.
Fortunately, washing your hands eliminates the risk of the deadly virus spreading but it is slowly making your hands lose their moisture. Add to that all the household chores and cooking and most of us are left with dry, blistered hands. While there are a bunch of hand care products available in the market, we make things easier for you - these DIY hand masks will ensure that your hands are as soft as a baby's 🍑.
