Lather on E45 or something similar and put cotton gloves over them before you go to bed, the warmth will help the cream absorb and doing it at night means you won't wash your hands for a while!

Hi

Recently bought a hand cream in Aldi - Lacura range with a red lid (http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Lacura-Anti-Agein ... 2a04b925b4) - Anti-Aging for Mature Skin (I'm 35) but my hands are so dry and chapped - Found it great and only €1.35

Bought the "blue lid" version - Conditioning last week as I couldn't find the one with the red lid - not near as good - seems too runny

Also using an Avon Skin-so-Soft one at the minute (http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/AVON-SKIN-SO-SOFT ... 3caaad9313) - It is very good too.

This weather just kills my poor hands so interested to hear any recommendations

I have also started to ALWAYS wear rubber gloves when putting hands in water which is helping. Also find it good to put in handcream before putting on the gloves as the heat from marigolds & hot water seems to improve the effectiveness of the hand cream

If yout hands are that bad them you may need the hydrocortisone 1% stuff in the chemist to clear them up. I had to get it when my hands were in bits.

Worked for me.

And I've never let my hands get so bad again - Aveeno hand cream lasts through hand washing, it's really good.

i had a really bad dry skin on one hand,it was cracking & bleeding. got the e45 cream mixed with a bit of the hyrdocortisine and it worked great. lash the e45 on a few times a day now and seems to keep them from drying out.

I use Kelkin Vitamin E cream. It's the best I've found so far. Also wearing the gloves on after lathering on the cream at night is great. Also when drying your hands don't rub with the towel, pat them dry, iykwim....

Advice from the dermatologist (which I got for extremely cracked hands)

Always wash your hands in emulsifying ointment - you get it in any chemist - about €4.50 for giant tub. Dry them well and rub in emulsifying ointment once dry. Do this as many times a day as you like

When very bad (ie when you havent been doing instructions above!) take one tablespoon of emulsifying ointment - whip it up with boiled water from the kettle till lumps gone and mix into warm bowl/sink of tap water. SOak poor chapped hands in it for 15 minutes (aaaaaaaaah, the relief!!!). No longer than 15 mins though. Dry well by patting on clean towel. Rub in more ointment. Repeat as many times a day as you need to.

Always wear rubber gloves for wet work. With cotton gloves inside them. (Yup, rubber ones alone will exacerbate bad dry skin conditions). Cotton gloves for dusty work etc..

HTH

My DD's hands went very dry this winter. I think it could be from a strong soap they have in school and I have to remind her to rinse properly.
Her hands have got very dry a few times. And I've found a fab product that is gently

Most chemists and health stores have it. It works pretty fast.

Mostly in winter season, skin becomes very dry. Due to dry skin, various problem can arise like irritation of skin and fine line can appear on the skin. Hands becomes very dry and irritation starts.

If you've tried so many cream and do not work, perhaps you should go to check :)

yeah, it's simply logic, if creams don't help, it's time to a specialist. also, there is a life hack - try to use natural vaseline. maybe your skin is dry because of chemicals that are in those creams and lotions.

I like using Aveeno hand cream. It really works and is non-greasy.
