My wife's fingers get dry and cracked in the winter. A few years ago I picked up some of this stuff at a local hardware store and she now swears by it.

Good luck.

CVS moisturizer. If I remember to use it before car crawling, my hands clean up easier too.

My cracking occurs along the knuckle. I've found the trick is to keep your hands moisturized *before* they're chapped to the point of cracking. Once my hands have started cracking, it's too late and it's more about healing them than moisturizing.

I use Gold Bond Diabetic lotion. I'm not diabetic, but my mom is and I first borrowed some while visiting my parents. I apply every night before bed. That's usually enough, but for weeks like this one, where I have to turn down the home humidity due to the cold, I'll probably apply some mid-afternoon too.

O'Keeffe's foot cream is pretty good. Good to know their hand cream is good, too.

Good luck.


I second using O'Keeffe's
Sold at Wal-Greens or Hardware Stores.
Only Hand Cream I use now.

Any moisturizer that comes with a pump, may contain a higher % of water (to pump more easily).

I like Udderly Smooth for regular use, but Bag Balm is better for lots of cracks.
And don't wash your hands too much.

Eucerin for me...as mentioned above, the key is to start using it BEFORE the cracks develop!

I also use some special no-brand heel stuff that I apply from a tube like a deodorant, my wife buys it for me at Walgreen's. I didn't have any with me on a recent ski trip and was really hobbling due to heel cracks when I got back...I wonder if the wool ski socks make it worse somehow, but we also don't have a humidifier in our ski condo.

I use liquid gloves at work which works really well even with frequent hand washing.
