DIY Hand Mask to Keep Your Hands Moisturized During “Rona” Season

Washing your hands shouldn’t be a trend. But here we are, friends.

My hands have been so DRY, with all this constant hand washing and applying sanitizer they look like an SFX aging makeup experiment.  Lotion helps but it’s not always easy to apply lotion after every washing because 5 minutes later you will be washing again!  My hands need something EXTRA.

If your hands are dry and cracking (like mine) I have some DIY relief for those Crypt Keeper paws and everything you need can be found right there in your kitchen- carrots oil and honey. A DIY Hand Mask to Keep Your Hands Moisturized During “Rona” Season.

Carrots are rich in antioxidants which increase cell turnover, brighten skin and reduce inflammation; when you include them in a homemade mask, they help to tone and rejuvenate.

The honey will moisturize your skin and the oil helps all the ingredients blend together smoothly.  This can be fun for the whole family to do during a streaming marathon.

Let’s get started.

What You Need: (This is for 1 mask)

2-3 Large Carrots

1 TSP. Almond Oil or Olive Oil

2 TSP. Honey

Rubber Cleaning Gloves

*(If you don’t have rubber gloves you could use large plastic baggies. Note- this won’t work with tight latex gloves the mask will go everywhere- you need the space that rubber cleaning gloves or a baggie allows.)

What to Do: 

STEP ONE:  Peel the carrots and slice them into small rounds. Boil the carrots in a small pot until they’re easily pierced with a fork. Drain the water away and pour the cooked carrot slices into a small bowl.

STEP TWO: Mash the carrots thoroughly with a fork or in a food processor.

STEP THREE: Add the honey and olive oil to the mashed carrots a little bit at a time and mix thoroughly until the mask is the consistency you like.  It should be moist but not runny, kind of like the texture of baby food.

STEP FOUR: Fill the rubber gloves with the mask- make sure to push it down into the fingers of the gloves.

STEP FIVE: Place your hands in the gloves for 15-20 minutes.  Sit back and relax.

STEP SIX: After 15-20 minutes remove hands from gloves, rinse and pat dry.  They will be soft, smooth and oh so hydrated!

I couldn’t be more excited about the direction that the beauty industry is headed. There has been a huge shift towards natural, organic and cruelty free products over the last few years.

These aren’t the natural products of yesteryear that deliver in a health-food store type of way these are products that provide even BETTER results than some of the top products on the market.  In fact they can sit side by side with them!

Matrix Biolage recently released an AMAZING collection that is totally R.A.W.–  Real, Authentic and Wholesome.

Matrix Biolage R.A.W.

The Matrix Biolage R.A.W. Collection is not only good for your hair but also for the environment. It’s a truly  exciting addition to the natural beauty market, with products made of 70% to 90% natural-origin ingredients that are 99% biodegradable, and 100% recycled plastic packaging!

The ingredients that make up the collection are not only of natural origin but are also all obtained in an eco-friendly way from sourcing all the way to formulation.

PLUS… NO CHEMICAL NASTIES!  The Matrix Biolage R.A.W. range is free of sulfates, parabens, silicones, and artificial colorants!


There are 3 collections in the line to choose from: Nourish (for dry, dull hair), Recover (for stressed, sensitized hair) and Uplift (for fine, flat hair). Each range utilizes a special blend of unique ingredients that target specific concerns and rejuvenate your tresses from root to tip!

Based on my hair-care needs, Influencer sent me the Nourish Collection to try.

Matrix Biolage R.A.W. Nourish Shampoo contains quinoa husk and honey to feed dry, dull hair for healthy-looking, softer locks.  Its kind of a runny shampoo so be careful when you pour it but it lathers up nicely and leaves hair super clean without drying it out.  It also has a yummy honey scent.

Matrix Biolage Nourish Conditioner utilizes coconut oil and kaolin clay, to feed dry, dull hair and intensely conditions for soft, shiny touchable strands.  My hair felt soft to the touch, wasn’t weighed down and blew out frizz free PLUS it smells AMAZING!  I’m obsessed with the scent of this conditioner.  A light subtle coconut that is perfect for summer!

With so many choices out there don’t you think it’s as important to buy products that work as it is to buy products that are good for you and the environment!

The Matrix Biolage R.A.W. Collection is available at Matrix Salons and
