  • Believe it or not, Lanolin, the stuff for breastfeeding moms. I don't use it for breastfeeding, but it's great for hands and feet, or little cheeks and noses in the winter...

  • Mary Kay Satin Hands, I love the stuff! I buy a tube and it last forever. I worked as a CNA for 17 years, and in the winter time my hands were bleeding if I clenched a fist. I started using Satin hands Daily and have never had that issue again.

  • I use aquaphor. Its what works best for me. Just so other Mom's will know, it also works great on diaper rashes.

  • Aveeno usually.
    You want something THICK -- more of a cream or ointment, not a lotion.
