    Manis every other week…if I dont I tend to pick at my cuticle. I’m a picker. A I moisturize a lot during the day especially in the winter. I hate when my hands feel dry.

  2. PAOLA

    MY HANDS ARE VERY DRY AND THE ONLY THING THAT HAS EVER WORKED…IS JERGENS ORIGINAL LOTION…I LIKE THE CHERRY ALMOND SCENT…I LOVE IT IN THE WINTER TIME

    Lemon juice and sugar scrub (homemade) or the Lush Ocean Salt scrub, followed by Aveda Hand Relief and cotton gloves (if I really need it).

    Oh and I use vitamin E ointment (you can get this cheap at GNC, I get their brand) and slather it over my hand followed by cotton gloves at night! My hands are ready for the day! And it heals them since my hands get painfully dry in winter.

    I use this special all-over cream from Slovakia, that a friend ships to me. During the summer I use it to remove my eye-makeup (it cleans really well and moisturizes), but durring the winter I have dry hands, and dry skin on my face, esp after a shower. So I slather it everywhere, and carry a tube in my purse for after I wash my hands.

    This is a huge problem for me – I’m an artist so I’m constantly washing something off my hands. I really like The Body Shop’s Hemp hand cream, a bit expensive but very moisturizing.

      GAHHHH I think that the Body Shop’s Hemp hand cream might just be one of the best hand lotions I have ever tried :) I tend to buy other brands just because I am such a sucker for scents, I do however keep a bottle/tube of this stuff around when I need it. BUT for anyone wanting an amazingly kick ass hand cream they should for sure check that out.

  7. Ohh….I really don’t. I rarely use lotion or anything. I wear gloves when it’s cold only because my hands have absolutely no tolerance for it (I think they were frostbit when I was a kid.)

    Hand beauty? Not me.

  8. I have to keep my hands healthy for work, but definitely more of a health slant, over a beauty slant. Nails need to be kept short and smooth, and the skin must be healthy and intact.

    I use a salt scrub (sits in oil within the packaging) to exfoliate, and the oil really helps to moisturize. I also use cocoa butter, and I keep a tube a Sally Hansen hand cream at work, since I need to wash my hands twice for every patient I see.

    i keep my hand looking good by applying l’ocitane hand cream… i use the one with shea butter and its miracle… love the smell and how it feels…

    I have always had dry skin, but it wasn’t until I was on Accutane that I found my favorite hand cream. Kiehl’s Ultimate Strength Hand Salve is wonderful, thick, and smells like herbs. It takes a few minutes to absorb, but to me, it’s worth the wait. I also use a cuticle pen every few days, I like the Sephora brand lavender scented one.

    I always have hand cream right beside me. I’m a serious bacteria-phobe, so I wash my hands about 40 times a day (really). So I have bottles in every room, in my purse, my boyfriend’s car, my car, etc! There is nothing I dislike more than dry hands. I use natural creams that are really emollient. & as for my nails, I keep them even and polished, and never chipped!

  12. Leslie

    Marky Kay Satin Hands set. Seriously! It’s amazing. :)

  13. Asta

    I’m a nurse, so all I do is wash my hands for 12 hrs a day. We all use Gold Bond Ultimate Healing hand lotion on my floor. Best stuff evah.

  14. I like putting on Bath and Body’s hand cream in Sweat Pea whenever I feel like they are dry. I usually have some type of lotion on hand for an all over cream for everything else, but I don’t leave my house without the hand cream and hand sanitizer.

    And I do wash the dishes WITHOUT gloves, but as soon as I dry my hands I slather on a good amount of that hand cream to keep them nice and moisturized.

    I do have a bottle of anti-aging moisturiser that didn’t work for my face at all, made it all shiny and oily. Hence I changed it to be my hand n foot lotion! I think it really works since our hands n foot are subject to so much work they age easily.
