dry cracked hands

  1. Hi everyone,
    Since the weather is getting colder, my hands are dry and cracked from so much hand washing and use of waterless sanitizers. What has everyone used that has helped?

    Corn Huskers you can get it at Wal-Mart. Not fancy, but it works!

    Orly Cuticle Cream, smear it on your hands when you get into the car, or even before, and you will have hands that look normal when you get home.
    (Provided that you live more than five minutes from work.)

    The tree hut Shea body butter (theres like 5 scents), Shea butter works very well. You can get the jar in wal mart for about 4 dollars. Shea also helps with blemishes and there are conditioners that contain shea.


    Thats a link to show you what the jar looks like:http://www.naterra.com/_treehutF.php


    That reminds me the body shop has there own body butters too and they are VERY earth friendly. If you have a body shop in your mall take the empty bottles back to the store to be recycled or they can custom make you lotions and refill the same bottle. I've been using there products since I was a little kid in the 80's (have granola parents lol). These stores have been open longer than bath and body works (yuck).
