Dry, cracked hands - a curse.

Nice smooth hands .... are only a dream for those who are employed in manual labour. Constant washing in sterilised environments, can be a curse on ones hands. Are you in conflict with this problem?


I used to work in a manual job and it was frustrating to have dry hands with cuts, etc. Washing them all the time only makes them puffy and wrinkly... lol. I prefer to keep my hands soft and clean, without having to overuse them.


I use moisturisers several times a day, i suffer from eczema and even washing my hands dry them out.Would love to have perfectly soft hands :-)


I am outside a lot with my animals and my hands really pay. They are very dry and cracked. They seem to alternate between being really itchy or painful. I think I may have a bit of eczema.


Vaseline, Vaseline,Vaseline


So have this problem. Dr Hauschka products have been great for me. Ice Plant products in particular.


As a nurse, dry, cracked hands are an occupational hazard. I always swear by Atrixo creams to keep my hands bearable.


My partner has cracked hands and he hates it!!


Moisturizer and gloves are your best friends. :)


My daughter suffers from this badly.if anyone has Amy herbal remedy suggestions I would be very grateful as nothing seems to help

Calendula oil, or cream is available in lotion and gel....... worth a query?
