I’m going to sound like an infomercial today. Are your hands suffering in the winter months? Are they cracking and even bleeding?? Well…I’m here to help you get back to smooth glorious hands even in the dry winter months. Ha ha ha!!
I hope I’m not the only one having this problem. In the winter, my hands get SO dry. They get so dry they actually crack and bleed. I know it’s so gross and it’s REALLY painful. This year I’m trying my best to prevent it from happening as much as possible. This is what my hands usually look like in the dry winter months…
I’m kidding (kind of!!)
Today I’m going to share with you the three things I’m using/doing this year to keep my hands from getting so dry they crack! Eek! That’s too painful!
A friend told me about this lotion a couple years ago and I’ve been a big believer ever since. I know it says, “Cracked Heel”, but I use it on my hands too because it’s SO thick. I use it every night before bed and also randomly a couple times during the day. It has made a HUGE difference on my hands.
This is Bath & Body Works lotion for hands. I’ve tried this too and I really prefer the thicker “cracked heel” lotion. (If you have super dry hands like me.)
I’m doing my best to drink LOTS AND LOTS of water. It’s so much easier in the hot summer months. But I’m forcing myself to have my fair share (and more) of water everyday.
#3 (This is the BIG one!)
Gloves (I don’t even know what you call these gloves…dishwashing gloves?)
Nixon, my photographer, did an excellent job, huh?
A couple weeks ago, my aunt was in town and my hands were cracking and bleeding. Every time I would get them wet it would get SO much worse. I finally told Tab I couldn’t do the dishes anymore because the water was making my hands SO much worse. (I know that sounds like a great excuse, but it was actually the truth.) Anyway, my aunt told me I needed to get gloves and it’d make a huge difference. Why had no one told me that before??? Thank you Aunt Rene’!!! I’ve been using them for the last two weeks and my hands are perfectly fine!! (I’m also using the lotion and drinking tons of water.)
Ladies, so sorry for the infomercial today. But…in all honesty, I REALLY hope it helps someone. If you have dry hands, you should REALLY give these ideas a try. Happy Tuesday!!
