Something has to make my hands smooth after playing with iron all day, or the wife will not like.:laughup:

Jeffrey you should try this stuff. I love it. It works better than anything else I have found for healing dry, cracked skin.

Funny I just saw that last week. Just might have to get me some. :icon_thumbsup:
Our winters are soooooo dry and cold and as much as they are in water. The fingers are very rough at times.

You won't be sorry. Use it before bed and even the worst cracked hands will heal by morning.

My hands will crack and start to bleed between the knuckles when they dry out, terrible with the cold winters here. Only thing that works for me is a product called Glaxal Base, should be able to find it in any drug store.

I always swore by Bag-Balm, Vermont's Original Moisturizing & Softening Ointment. All the cows recommend it for those "sensitive" areas. :D

According to Wikipedia, "Its uses are claimed to be many, for example: "squeaky bed springs, psoriasis, dry facial skin, cracked fingers, burns, zits, diaper rash, saddle sores, sunburn, pruned trees, rifles, shell casings, bedsores and radiation burns."

Those pesky radiation burns are the worst, aren't they?

I wonder why I never bought it up. I think the cows can keep it.
