So it is late, and tomorrow is back to work.... but since my last post, I did nothing but sleep the entire day, watched some TV, and did some work...
After the horrifying picture in the previous entry, you remember the dry skin/ cuticle flaky stuff around my nails and fingers?
Here is that picture again to refresh your memory.
I am not the most conscientious person when it comes to applying creams and lotions... Sometime I throw a tub of my cream stuff in my hand, but 90% of the time, it gets forgotten and I don't use them much at all. In contrast, my sister is religious about applying creams on her hands. She keeps a tube of L'occitane's hand cream or EA's 8 Hour Cream in her bag and each time she washes her hands, she will re apply the cream. But that's not what I do, cos I really don't like the slimy feeling my hands and fingers get, and I don't like staining my papers, or clothes...
Phew. That's a lot of ramble... and anyway, what I wanted to say is, after that picture was taken, I felt bad enough about the dry skin to slap on some product, in this case, MAC's Honey Salve. Other similar products which I like for my hands are the LUSH Lemony Flutter and EA's 8 hour cream. The 8 hour cream in particular, is really lasting, and stays on your hands, working its magic. Sometimes I slather it all over my legs.
after a nap, a few hours later
There is noticeable improvement, as you can see, the dry flakes are almost all gone... and I just slapped on some more, before I go to bed in a bit.
And I applied a thin layer, like this, around the finger tips.
So what are your favourite hand rescue products??
