Severe Cracked Dry Hands... Cured!

For the past few weeks I've been suffering really bad with severely dry hands - they've been so painful - particularly between my fingers. I'm putting it down to always using acetone in work (although in theory it should only be my fingertips effected) but most probably down to the chilly weather with no gloves ** slaps wrists **

I've tried so many hand creams and they seem to relieve the immediate dryness but aren't actually helping to make the problem better. As I'm trained to do paraffin wax treatments in work (if you've never heard of them - you need to look this one up if you have dry hands!) I have done this to myself a few times but nothing cured the problem until... I decided to scrap using the creams and use oils.

I've been using the Weleda Body Oils and I love them. Originally I got the pomegranate oil in my GlossyBox but I bought the miniature mixed sets to try the different scents. They've worked a treat and I feel like the oil really sinks in. I have to say that the scents are lovely apart from the Wild Rose one - that smells like roses with cigarette smoke (I'm not even joking!)

Anyway - I get my supplies from www.feelunique.com

The improvement in a few days is unbelievable!

    1. If you get any type of body oil i'm sure it would do Hilary - its just that the oil really seeps into your skin so leaves them moisturised (obviously leaves them oily too but I'm happy with the relief and I put it on while i'm sitting watching tv or something) x

    2. Congratulations on your new blog! I must start mine - only got as far as setting one up in Wordpress but haven't written anything!

      I suffer from dry, cracked hands on occasion, too! I blame the cheapo handwash we have at work. Even E45 fails to cure it! I never thought about oils and it'd be easy to use it at night and let the oils do the work in peace! Am deffo gonna give it a go!

    3. Thank you & thanks for following!! As soon as you get yours set up be sure to let me know and i'd love to follow back !! Definitely let me know how you get on with using the oils. I think most body oils will do... its just that feeling of really sinking deep into your skin - its exactly what you need in this sort of weather ! x
