It's that time of year again. With winter and the cold upon us, I don't know about you but for me that usually means dry hands. Which is why my flavor of the week is:
Hemp Hand Protector
From the Body Shop
Flavor of the "WEEK" may be a bit misleading on this one, cause I've used this stuff for years and I absolutely swear by it. My hands get really dry working in the pharmacy and washing them all the time, so in the winter the cold weather makes it even worse (i.e. dry, cracked, bleeding hands...ouchie). Nate uses it too! His hands get 10x worse than mine and this is the only thing that actually heals the severe dry skin.
I put it on every night at bedtime, cause it's REALLY thick and leaves your hands pretty greasy for a little bit. So I put it on right before I go to bed and let it soak in without having to worry about using my hands for anything. I'll warn you ahead of time...it doesn't smell pretty. It doesn't stink, or smell bad by any means, but it's not meant to smell fancy-like flowers or fresh linens, or fairy lily's or anything awesomely fragrant like that. But it certainly gets the job done, and when my hands are cracked and painful, that's all I care about! Which is why it is my Flavor of the Week!
