DIY REJUVENATING HAND TREATMENT :: NEGIN NIKNEJAD

I've been driving a ton.  I live in Topanga, which means getting around is a bit of a shlep.  Beyond worth it, but still miles + miles in the car.  Which also means my hands are in this steamy, hot Summer sun constantly.  I'm wearing my sunscreen, but they are taking a beating.  Esthetician, Healer, Herbalist, Founder of JustBe Skin Care Line, and my dear, friend Negin shares with us the most nourishing + rejuvenating vegan hand treatment.  Hands are truly the first part of the body to show age.  And they are very likely the most over worked and under cared for.  So we thought it was time to show our hands some true love.  These transforming ingredients are straight from your own kitchen, but the results far surpass any store bought treatment.  Give your hands some love today.
