It seems the more I sew this time of the year my finger tips get really dry and crack... Any good hints on some good lotions?

Gold Bond with Shea Butter is all that works for me. I use Super Glue on the cracks.
I have a lot of trouble with my hands in the winter.

When I use olive oil in cooking, I often also rub it on my hands. I use NUskin (which is a lot like superglue) on any punctures, cuts or cracks.

We should all spend the winter in the tropics! Our getting-older skin wasn't meant to endure this freezing cold, dry air.

I use Neutrogena Fast Absorbing many times throughout the day. It's non-greasy so I don't have to worry about my paperwork or fabric. At night time I like Neutrogena Hand Cream. (it comes in a smallish tube packaged in a box) You might want to try the fast absorbing one in between times if whatever heavier one you use interferes with what you're doing.

I'm really careful about what I wash with my hands with, too - as I have super-sensitive skin. If I wash my hands with Dial or stick my hands in dishwater it burns my skin - I break out in bunches of teeny blisters. I look for products that are called hand wash, not hand soap to keep by the kitchen sink. And in the bathroom I swear by Dove.

I agree with you QBee (for once lmao ) about hand soaps. Dove is the ONLY
shower soap I can use. I just can't use the nice soaps and jels people like to
give for gifts. I never use the anti-bacterial soaps at home. Palmolive is the
only dish wash soap I can use. Oh my...........we are all so sensitive Thud .

My feelings don't get hurt too easily, so I'm not sensitive in some ways. winking (And it's a good thing considering that comment, Paws!! Very Happy ) My skin has been sensitive since the day I was born, though. I've always thought there's a princess around some where with the tough, resilient skin I was meant to have. My life wasn't meant for this delicate covering. Very Happy

Eucerin cream is great, if I can find the tube I bought!!!!!! I use dove, too...love it. I also buy Bath & Body pump soaps with moisturizers...that works too. I wash my hands at least 15 times a day! It's dry here all the time, so fabric really dries out my skin since I hand quilt AND handpiece. I also use wool wax over other moisturizers. Seals it in.
Do any of you use the gloves at night with the heavy creams? When I move DD all the paper handling dried my hands out horrible ...they cracked and bled for a week!

I use Eucerin too, but not the pump stuff, I use the thick stuff in the jar. I use olive oil on my face and hands as well.

I do wear golves on occasion, I have excema (only on my left hand) and it comes and goes (comes in the winter and leaves in the summer) so I medicate with hydrocortozone and gloves.
Qbee....its areas of really tiny blisters that leak fluid and itch. Its like a one day cycle, after they pop they dry and my tactile sensation is off until the skin regenerates. I've only had this condition for a few years (about the time mother nature decided it was my time to become a dry prune)

Eucerin has been another of my favorites.

Chris - I actually battled excema for years, but not so much in my "older years". (not that I'm so old, mind you!) That's exactly what the patches on my palms are like when I get my hands into soap. Do you suppose an attack of excema can come on within an hour or two?

Do you remember that old song about "Camp Granada"? That performer also did a song about skin. "Skin. All you really need is skin. Skin's the thing that when you're walking about, helps to hold your insides in." lmao The way my skin seems so anxious to leave my body, I keep hoping that it will continue to hold my insides in!

Udder Ointment, there is simply nothing better than it, you can get it at the local vet surgery and its cheaper than a lot of the 'cosmetic' lines. Im not kidding you, its true, all the nursing homes use it here, I use to sell that stuff day in day out when I was a veterinary nurse, it heals psoriasis and excema, dermatitis and all manner of cracks and splits. Its gentle and safe, you couldnt use it on a milking cows udder if it wasnt, seriously, get some, its great on elbows, knees and feet too

Gimpy, I'm "udderly" amazed at this! Just joking with you. I've heard this cream is the best. We do have it here in the states. I think I'll buy some and try it out.
