What do you use for dry hands?

What dish detergent? Bath soap? Hand lotion or cream?  My hands are so dry and my fingertips are cracking. I use a hand cream with glycerin, but it isn't working as well as I think it should. Any suggestions?

I started using working hands. Got it at bed bath and beyond. It's in a small flat green container. It's the only thing that helps when my hands are dry and cracking.

BAG BALM     They used to only sell it in animal supply stores because farmers use it on their animal's dry cracked skin.   they sell it in pharmacies now.   Put it on at night and wear pastic gloves, the kind you'd wear while you dye your hair,   your hands will be smooth in the morning.

If my hands are really dry I will put on some Aquaphor at night before bed and wear gloves (latex or the special moisturizing ones). In the morning I will use Aveeno Skin Relief or Overnight Cream or the 24 Hour Moisture. A lot of the other lotions tend to cause a burning itching reaction to my dry skin. Oh, and make sure to drink LOTS of extra water. That helps too.

Try coconut oil or get some parafin treatments.

Thank you.  I'll see if the treatments are offered in this area. Do they make the hands less dry?

Definitely!


The Benefits of a Paraffin Treatment

As the cooler weather sets in, we’re starting to enjoy gorgeous colors, warm cider, and fun hayrides for the family. Unfortunately, lower temperatures and dry air also mean stiff joints and dry skin.

What better time to get a paraffin treatment?

Contrary to what some may think, paraffin wax treatments are not just for prettifying hands and feet. They also offer many health benefits.

Heat therapy

The wax used in paraffin treatments is a soft type which melts without burning the skin. When the melted wax is applied to the hands and feet, the gentle and even heat increases blood flow and relaxes the muscles. The result is relief from joint stiffness and pain, as well as increased range of motion. This is an effective therapy if you suffer from ailments like arthritis or tendonitis, or if you’ve overworked your hands, leading to soreness and fatigue.

Skin softening and rejuvenation

During the colder months, our skin is prone to drying out and cracking as a result. The most severe conditions end up in chronic swelling and infections. Paraffin treatments can help prevent this by softening the skin and removing dead cells. This eventually increases skin elasticity and facilitates movement in the affected hand.

In addition, the soaking step and oils used during treatment open up the pores and allows moisturizers to work their magic. You’ll leave with soft, touchable and more comfortable skin, even in problem spots like heels and knuckles.

Relaxation

Another, often overlooked, benefit of a paraffin treatment is aromatherapy. Essential oils may be used during a session, adding to the overall relaxing experience. Make sure you ask for available options when you book your appointment.

A paraffin treatment is one of the most affordable ways to treat yourself, as well as help your hands and feet stay healthy this winter. Check out my massage services or contact me today to find out how I can help.

ooooo, I like! Thank you for the information!  I sprained my hand a year ago and it still hurts, it sounds as though the treatment would help this also.
