Hi BITOGers,

after working heavily, with various liquids/dirtying things, washing like 200 times a day, what do you use to prevent reptile skin/cracked/ouch hands?

At my work I see:
-baby lotion
-vaseline men's (I use this one)
-o'keefe working hands

Nothing works too well. Why would they want it too smile

Clean hands with peroxide, then follow with mild acid wash (dilute vinegar).

Apply beeswax/olive oil/Vitamin E homemade mixture to hands before sleep.

Apply as necessary during the day.

I tend to change lotions often. Right now it's Gold Bond Ultimate Softening, but my hands don't get such heavy beating as yours.

From another thread on here recently I tried O’Keefes. Excellent product. I use their foot cream but I’m sure their hand lotion is equally as good.


Cannot see signatures any longer so it doesn’t matter.

If you can get some of those cotton gloves and slather your hands with Vaseline and then cover them up before bed, your hands will be baby soft.

This tends to limit what you can do once in bed but if you get severe cracking around the knuckles then this is a really effective way.

I like their foot cream. I tried their hand cream, but did not care for it much. It leaves a greasy feeling on my hands, which I don't like. It's probably effective, though.

Corn Huskers Lotion and not because I live in Nebraska. Used it many years. Like it because it dries completely and doesn't leave a greasy feeling. Easy to find.

The exact reasons I use it. However, can be tough to find.
