Lemon Water Hand Soak

The lemon and water hand soak is mostly for people who have a lot of tanning on their hands. The lemon removes the tanning and cleanses the skin from within and the warm water opens the pores and helps in this process.  So, to clear the tanning from your hands, all you have to do is take some warm water, a big bowl in which you can soak your hands, a lemon, and a liquid soap that is gentle on the skin. 

Start by pouring the warm water in the bowl, then take the liquid soap and enough for soaking and cleaning your hands. Then cut a lemon and squeeze half of it inside the water mix well and put your hands in it. Using the lemon peel scrub your hands thoroughly and then let them soak in for 10 minutes. Wash off, pat dry with a towel, and then moisturise with hand cream.
