What is the best hand lotion for dry & cracked hands? And does any one have a good hand soap that doesn't dry out your hands?
With all the bugs out there and it starting to be cold and flu season, I can't help washing my hands all the time. (It could be a little OCD
). With all the classes I'm taking talking about all the bugs that could kill me and having 2 kids at home that seem to bring everything home, I'm a little crazy about washing my hands. SO if anyone has any suggestions on a great lotion please let me know.
As far as soaps go, I have had the best results from ones without Lauryl or Laureth Sulfates. It can be somewhat tricky to locate these, but I've found a good selection of several brands and scents in health food stores. Also, more and more stores have "natural" or "organic" sections, where I've been able to locate soaps. In these same sections, there is usually a selection of lotions.
Some of these products are little more expensive, but I've found I need a lot less of the products, so I don't think in the long run cost is an issue. Besides, not having to worry about non-intact skin on my hands or having discomfort/ itchiness makes it worth it for me.
