Vitamin E cream, or Lanolin: slather it on hands before bed, pop on a pair of plastic or nitrile gloves. Sleep.I've finally had it with my dry hands and I've cracked like the skin on them. Went to a cosmetics place to get something (seems to be working), they signed me up for the usual "discount if you agree to receive our newsletter" deal and so I've received one of those. It has confirmed what everyone already knows:
Cosmetics advertising is BULL. SHIT.
The gloves trap heat and moisture in, making the pores open, and then the cream can get in and do it's thing.
It's what the dermatologist told Dad to do when fibreglass fibres and dust would damage his skin. Always worked.
