8 Simple tricks to sooth and heal dry cracked fingertips this winter

This is the time of year (well in the states at least) where nails can become brittle and skin very dry even to the point of cracking! I wouldn’t suggest the superglue, that can lead to making things worse as it pulls your skin off. Before going out with or without gloves put on a thick lotion or some vaseline type all over your hands (and if you will be outside without face protection put it on your face especially your T-zone (that of your forehead and nose) Use moisturizer everyday.
When You take a shower don’t use too hot of water as that can also strip your skin of moisture (surprisingly right?) While I am still int he shower with the water on, I rub some babyoil on everywhere esp. that which is usually exposed to the elements or just ends up getting cold first!) I rinse off. before I towel dry I use a little more especially On my feet, hands and arms (the spots that feel dry or usually end up feeling itchy during the winter.)
You also don’t want the heat in your house too high… as that can be stripping the moisture. Might I suggest a humidifier even if it’s just on your bedside table at night.
But be sure especially if you work outside… keep lotion with you, and put it on every time after your wash your hands and before you put your gloves back on or go back to work. My dad’s fingers would get so dry they’d split and man did it look like it hurt! (honestly just looking at it would bring a tear to my eye)
You want ones that are thick, not watery like those perfumey type of lotions. Think of ‘body butter’ that’s creamier than a lotion. So its more ‘cream than lotion that you are looking for. Here are some of the products my dad uses as well as I have in the past or still do!
For those of you that have this problem, Udderly Smooth (udder cream) or the O’keefe’s brand is great to use.. I think my dad used to also have something in a square tin as well..
All Natural Balm , Burt’s Bees, Neutrogena, .. Nivea is also good, I tin kit’s one of the thickest lotions…err Cream I have seen!
my Favorite is the Lotions like Dream Cream  and the Vaseline like (ultra Balm  at Lush (which is a vegan product) Also I LOVE LOVE LOVE The Lemony Flutter.. really it’s cuticle butter but it has a nice lemon smell that I use it as a  cream balm as well!
If you go to the nail salon, get a manicure especially if they warm the lotions~! The Salon I go to uses warm lotion, and feels so much more soothing than just rubbing in the lotion.
Also I suggest using a pumice stone to remove any dry skin from your hands (etc body) you need to exfoliate that dry skin off. then put your lotion balm or whatever on.  I know there are some that just use a little olive oil to prevent their hands from cracking and skin from drying. (always best to put oils or the lotions on when you still have some beads of water on you from your shower.

Try Dry Degree dry spray antiperspirant

DSCN5940Degree Motion sense Dry Spray -Fresh Energy   “The Game Changer”

I remember in my pre & early teen years using a spray deodorant did not work for me, well at least in the way that it felt like it burned when I sprayed it on.
When I received a complimentary sample I was a bit hesitant, but I figured by now the sprays should be greatly improved and as far as the degree spray is concerned, they have.

I remember as well back in the day that when I’d spray, it would have a chalky smell and make me wheeze and cough, not to mention when breathing in it was like inhaling chalk. The smell of this one is pretty, but light I hardly noticed the smell until I saw the listing to submit the review. Mom even says it smells like perfume!

The first day I received it, after taking my shower I used the spray. Surprisingly it didn’t even burn having shaved. Now how does it do to actually keep you dry…
I sleep under a really heavy blanket the kind that if its not at least 40 degrees and below you will likely sweat so I thought I’d put it to the test that way.

I woke up feeling like I did right after the shower. I was dry, and well test DSCN5942wise, give myself a sniff and didn’t have any smell of sweat etc.
