Dry Dry Hands...

The winter time always causes my skin to dry out really bad!  I suppose taking the hottest showers possible and hardly ever using lotion could be the cause of some of my problems...

Today, I finally broke down and put some lotion on my skin because my knuckles were cracking open!!!


Right now, you're probably thinking I'm the biggest baby in the world by the looks of this picture... but those two little red dots you see are my cracked skin and it hurts :(  Anyone have good dry skin remedies???

I have the same problem year after year. I just use lots and lots of lotion. Come onnnnnn spring!

My favorite everyday lotion is Alba Botanica Very Emollient Body Lotion (I get the one with spf). I really like to put the Burt's Bees Lemon & Vitamin E Oil after I shower, too. I ALSO like to keep a big tin of Bag Balm on my nightstand to put on right before bed.

Hope that helps!

I use goat milk soap. I do not like to use lotion. I just don't care for the feeling of lotion on my hands. When I use this one particular Goat Milk soap, my hands thank me and I don't have to use any lotion!!!

Being a teacher, I am constantly washing my hands and my hands are so dry they crack open all the time and bleed. Its so painful. The best thing I have found is Gold Bond hand cream, but even that doesn't do enough. My mom swears by Bath and Body Works "Look Ma, New Hands" lotion.

I may go by some tomorrow- I am so tired of my hands cracking and bleeding! Hope you find something that works for you because I know how painful it is.
