Tracy LH, I agree, your cookies are perfection! I am just learning how to do the flooding with Antonia's RI, and your pictures give me lots of ideas icon_smile.gif

As far as dry hands go, two things have helped me with cracked and bleeding hands: Gloves In A Bottle, which is like a silicone sealant that you apply over your hands just after washing them, and it seals in the moisture. I bought it locally at Basha's grocery store in the pharmacy section, but you can order it online, too. The other thing that helps me is old-fashioned Bag Balm, which I put on at night when my hands are really bad, and sleep with socks or gloves on my hands to avoid staining my sheets. Smells weird but really helps!

When I worked in my family's deli, I didn't mind cutting and packaging the bacon. After cutting the salt pork into chunks, I would salt the butcher block and then rub my hands really good as I cleaned it off. icon_biggrin.gif

But I refused to cut head cheese!! lol icon_eek.gif

I also have super dry hands...especially right now. My husband found some funky gloves from CVS for me for Christmas. They are lined with silicone and then contain some other things (grape seed oil and vitamin e or something like that). You wear them for 30 minutes, it feels weird, but I definitely noticed a huge difference when I took them off.

Thanks for all of the great dry-hand-solutions ladies! Lots of great ideas! So glad you started this one, Shiney!

Thankyous to Sandy2008 and SweetLisa - I got lots of inspiration from the many, many talented cookie decorators here on CC - many of whom I aspire to be as good as someday!

I suffer with the same condition of dry, cracking hands. But since I have been drinking lots of water from home bottled water that is refrigerated, I find that my skin is less dry, and the cracking does not occur as much. I save all my coke bottles , wash and fill them with tap water, and put them on the bottom shelf, and grab one whenver I need it. The reason that I use coke bottles is, I find they are a heavier and more durable plastic, and if I choose to freeze one or two, they withstand the freezing better than the boughten water bottle does. We really need to drink lots of water in the winter,we dehydrate so much easier than in the summer.

A friend recommended a treatment for my dry hands. Olive oil with sugar. Rub the mixture really well all over your hands, and let them sit for about 5 min. Rinse off and your hands will be very soft and smooth. I do this before I go to bed and then put cotton gloves on my hands. I wake up with new hands!!

You know your hands are dry when:
You actually consider using Superglue to close the cracks up (just like my Dad used to do).


A couple things that help me: I use antibacterial soap only when working in the kitchen. All the other soap is regular. I have a lotion bottle next to every soap dispenser and try to use it after every wash.

OMG, my brother is a psycho... he owns a shoe repair and leather goods business... he will accidentally slit open his hand and just pinch it closed and glue it.

Well you know...Superglue is the "manly" answer! [Insert Tim the Tool man grunt here.]

I'm just afraid that my Dad will one day try to pass down this bit of wisdom to my boys.

I have switched my dish liquid to the new dawn hand renewal and after a few times of using it I did notice a difference but I still have to use lotion but not as much.Give it a try you will like it. icon_smile.gif

When my niece's were younger they had severe egzema (sp?).
I read an article that said for them to put crisco on the spots at bed time. They cleared up in days
I also just saw a great product on QVC for people like us that are constantly washing their hands. It's made with beeswax, and you put it on before starting anything and it keeps the water from absorbing into the skin.
I'm looking into it, because my hands, and fingers were just raw this year.

Happy New Year to All!
