Rough and Dry Hands...

Hi! How was your weekend?

Mine was really busy that I cooked almost all day for 2 straight days. Now my hands got rough and dry :( Believe it or not, if I bend my fingers, my skin crack, so I put some cream and band-aids to keep those affected parts moist. But beyond my expectation, yesterday, my skin between nails split open! ow...

I wear rubber gloves to wash dishes, but seems not helping... Do I need thin latex gloves while cooking?! Hope not... Maybe I need to moist my hands more frequently with plenty of cream!

How are your hands?

  1. Hi Ochi,

    Poor you..Maybe because you do too much cooking and washing made your hand dried out.

    Was it hurt?I hope not..Try to use some rich cream in moisture.

    Take care,Ochi..

  2. Hi Ochi,

    You poor thing! I know how bad my hands can get in the Winter! I use gloves for everything, washing dishes, and all my cleaning!

    I have plastic gloves in kitchen, bathroom, and utility room. You may need to wear plastic gloves while you cook, because your hands are in and out of water all the time!

    I use Vaseline Intensive Care Cocoa Butter Deep Conditioning Lotion! It seems to help my skin more than any other lotion! I love the cocoa butter smell too! Here's the link: http://www.vaseline.com/Carousel.aspx?Path=Consumer/OurProducts/CocoaButterRange
    If your skin is cracking you have a severe problem. Take care of yourself, wear your thin gloves to protect them!

  3. Hi jose,

    I think I put too much effort into my face!
    But I got a great result from immortelle! Thanks for your post!!!

    Yes my fingers really hurt :(
    Now I need to take care of them seriously...

  4. Ohayo jo,

    Thanks for your advice!!!

    I think we don't have that many Vaseline product lines here in Japan, but I'm gonna look for something special for my hands. Also, I need to get some thin gloves like you and put them all round the house and maybe at my workplace!!!

    You know what!? I just realized I have dry scaly skin on legs and arms, too :( This year is extremely dry I guess...
    I need to take care of my skin before it's too late...
    I heard taking a hot bath makes the skin dry, so I need to be careful this as well...

  5. Ochi,

    Yes,I heard some people said hot bath made our skin badly dry..This is true..

    Immortelle made my face really good..I love the results too..

    I seldom take care of my skin beside from face too.I think I also should start early.I only used Qohnson's baby lotion.

    Sometimes I even forget to use..

  6. Hi jose,

    I am the same!!! I have some cream but I always forget to use...
    I should have applied it even if I thought I don't need :(

    Let us keep our bodies moist!!!

    But I just realized your country is not that cold and dry in winter, right?!

  7. Ochi,

    Yup,my place here did not have any 'Four Season' though..Is a quite boring weather-sunny and rainy day,that's all.

    But temperature rise when sunny day made my skin dry even faster..I sweat a lots and need more H2O to replace back.I more prefer rainy day.

  8. Good morning jose,

    I like warmer weather, so I envy you!!!

    I only thought about sweating, but you are right. Easier to get wrinkled if it's too hot & dry!!!

    Sounds like at anytime, it is better for us to keep ourselves moist ;)

  9. Ochi,
    I think you better use lotion every nite. It's good for you because you have to wash and cook.

  10. Thank you anGeLine,

    Yes! I will, every night and maybe in the morning!!! Too dry in winter :(
