hey friends! i’m open to suggestions on GOOD hand lotions. my poor hands are SOOOOO dry these days… they feel like sand paper (no joke – no exaggeration – my rough skin has actually gotten "caught" on sheets and clothing in the past two weeks). i FINALLY realized WHY they’re so dry: i use hand sanitizer all the time (after changing davey’s diaper, after cleaning his spit up, when i get into the car after being in the mall or walmart or costco or the grocery store – you get the idea…) and i RARELY remember to use hand lotion, so my poor hands are dry, cracking and the slightest bump or scratch can cause a little bit of bleeding (oops)!
so last night i put some lotion on them… my attempt to promote healing, i guess. and my hands were splotchy red (red being where the lotion touched the driest parts of my hands). and since i’m pretty frugal with some stuff (like lotion – i’ve never really taken the time to buy the good stuff) i need some advice from my friends. it’s not really an option for me to stop using the hand sanitizer so much, so hit me with your suggestions and advice for some GOOD LOTION (keeping in mind that i don’t really like the smell of a lot of things – especially "flowery" smells – sensitivity on my part and allergies w/ sensitivity on dave’s part).
so hit me… with your suggestions, please!
