The Cure for Dry Hands!

The Cure for Dry Hands!We art teachers probably wash our hands as often as doctors! When you combine this frequent hand-washing with cold winter weather, and whatever medium we’ve currently got our hands in, it takes a nasty toll on our skin.

After so many years of trying different lotions and still having rough, dry hands, I had all but resigned myself to this fate! But when I started working with our new Raku Sculpture Clay and my hands actually got worse (how is that even possible??!) I became re-inspired to find a solution!

I searched Amazon for “best hand cream” and started reading dozens of product descriptions and even more reviews. I’m super picky! I wanted something that was fragrance free and non-greasy, my two hand cream pet peeves! Finally, I landed on Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream…. not only did it meet my pet peeve criteria, but it had hundreds of 5 star reviews. How had I never known about this??

All I can say is this product is not like anything else I’ve ever tried. I noticed an improvement the very first time I used it.

It’s 2oz. size may look small, but a little goes a long way…. you only need to use it sparingly. From reading the reviews I learned a great way to apply it: Just put a tiny dab (about the size of a small raisin) on the back of each hand. Then use your fingertips to rub it in from your wrists to your fingertips – don’t forget your cuticles! Then finally rub both hands together well. Starting on the back of your hands is the key to your hands feeling soft and not slimy!

I ordered several tubes so I can have one nearby when and where I need it. I keep one at my desk, one in my school bag, one in my car, and one by the bathroom sink. I always use it right before I go to bed, and a couple of times during the day when I think of it. For the first time in years, my hands are super soft now…. even in spite of that Raku Clay!!

If you order through my site, I get a small commission from Amazon, but this is not a sponsored post! I’m just sharing this because I love it and I think you will, too! Let me know if you try it!

    Nice and helpful article to protect hands from dryness and hardness. I love soft hands but I also try on many types of hand creams but no results. Now with your experience and star rating I thing it’s useful and we can easy take it anywhere.

    Thanks again.
