Another late night post
I've noticed this year that my hands started to crack much earlier in the season than usual. I've tried a few products that work for a short while but nothing that I would write home about. Petroleum Jelly ended up being my go to cure, it works but you can't do or touch anything after putting it on, sleeping with your hands up int he air not to get it on the sheets. I had a pair of those white gloves before but I kept waking up with them no longer on my hands, apparently I'm pretty busy while I sleep. On a recent visit to Home Depot for paint I was intrigued by a little green jar, as I got closer I noticed it was hand cream. O'Keeffes working hands, not too expensive either, around $7-$9 a jar depending where you get it. I figured that no harm could be done by giving it a whirl. I tossed it into the cart then chased Ollie around the paint department while our cans were being mixed. The girl called out our colours to let us know it was ready and as I was collecting them to put in the cart I noticed that the staff had the little green jar on their desk. I asked what she though about it and she went on and on about how much she loves it. With this new knowledge I was even more excited to try it out. It's been about 2 weeks now and my hands are always super soft. I put it on twice a day usually, in the morning and before bed, it's not greasy and doesn't smell like anything either. Working in clothing retail really dries out your hands and with this product I no longer have issues.
No more bleeding knuckles.
