One of the not-so-fancy duties of housekeeping is doing the dishes. This is one of my least favorite chores. Put some Oh-La-La into dishwashing and make it a spa treatment! Lather your hands with your favorite hand cream, I love Helping Hands from LUSH. Some days I add cuticle oil if I need it like the one pictured here from Essie. Find some overnight moisturizing gloves and wear them under your rubber gloves. Use water as hot as you can stand to “steam” your hands, this will help open the pores and allow your skin to absorb the moisture.
