    Any recommendations? My hands feel really dry lately and the lotions I use seem to work but then about an hour later my hands are chapped again. What kind of lotion/hand cream can I get at a drugstore that really works?! :)

    Try Cornhusker's Lotion. My sons worked outdoors during the winter. This cured their chapped and split skinned hands. I use Neutrogena hand cream. (I'm Norwegian so I'm partial to it)

    I am not too sure how much they sell this for in the states but I tried some on in the Aveda store here and loved it. I went to purchase it and was told the price for the small tube...$26:eek:hmy:and I couldn't talk myself into spending that much for the small tube. I still dream about it though:p.

    I use Eucerin. I have excema it has done wonders for the really bad dry skin I get. Down side it makes me a bit greasy, so I usually put it on at home, but I'd rather be a lil greasy to start than cracked skin for monthes at a time!

    I really like eucerin, but also Cetaphil.

    Jergen's advanced healing (I think is the name) also does well for me during dry months. :)

    I love the new Vaseline clinical therapy. I have dry skin, and it goes on nicely and doesn't feel greasy. It really makes my skin feel good.

    Moisture Therapy extra strength Cream from Avon might work for you too. My team teacher claims that it helped her hands.
    CREAMS are more effective than just plain lotion, is what I've found out. The creams feel greasy BUT they tend to hold the moisture in longer.
    Samothrace,
    I will have to check out that Eucerin for my hands. I have a minor case of eczema and the Pharmacy people told me to try it BUT never bothered. The doctor prescribed some Mometasone Furoate cream (steroid) for some spots that I got on my hands and elbows. Anyway, isn't it a PITA that we have it? (Hereditary in my case, I was told.) Anyway, thanks for sharing about the Eucerin.

    Gold Bond Ultimate Softening skin therapy lotion. It is about $9.00 for a large bottle, thick and creamy but not at all greasy, actually healed my hands when they were cracked. My husband uses it in the Spring when he is dealing with galvanized pipe, new born calves, moving water, and equipment - it keeps his hands from cracking and itching. Since trying this lotion, I won't buy another type of lotion ever.

    Nuetrogenia (sp?) and Gold Bond. My dad uses Udder Cream on his hands. They get really dry because of working out in the wind. It might sound silly, but it works for him. :)

    I have just discovered the Gold Bond Ultimate. I use the one with shea butter at home and the one with aloe at school.

    But, the very, very best stuff is the Mary Kay pink stuff. I put it on my hands and feet at night, put on socks and cotton gloves, and it is the most wonderful stuff ever. And worth every penny. i just wish they made it in containers big enough for the whole body!!!
