I’m a very full in mum and I find my hands seem to suffer a lot. I regularly get dry cracked hands even with regular moisturising and not using soap. Any suggestions on how to treat them naturally?

  • Try washing your hands with sorbolene cream instead of soap.

  • aveeno hand cream and then put cotton gloves on at night. or using a hand shield cream during the day

  • I use heal balm on my hands haha works a treat

  • I use heal balm on my hands. Works a treat

  • The best thing I have found is just plain old fashioned Vaseline. If you can put it on and wear some gloves for a couple of hours and do this daily it should clear it up.

  • My nails have been suffering terribly lately. I’ve been trying rubbing some olive oil into them of a night. Too early to tell, but am hoping it will help

  • Good ol’ Vaseline on backs of hands is very soothing and relieving over chemical filled moisturisers. Not on palms as greasy for palms but a simple natural remedy for extreme dryness.

  • Use as little chemicals on your hands wear gloves to protect them and using a strong hand cream should help

  • I have the same problem, especially in the winter. I always moisturize them, sometimes overnight with coconut oil and cotton gloves. Make sure you drink plenty of water.

  • Sorbelene cream .
    Pawpaw is soothing.
    Try to avoid soaps like hand sanitiser with alcohol in it as very drying

  • Paw paw on the hands.
    Or sorbelene.

  • I have had the same issue and I found that Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Concentrated Hand Cream amazing. It was a bit like a barrier cream but fixed my hands within a couple of days

  • Oops! I wrote Vitamin Cream below – it should read Vitamin E cream!

  • Maybe try coconut oil? I also love sukin stuff. Or you may need a dermatology review

  • Coconut oil it’s my answer to everything
