Let's face it. Our hands take a lot of abuse when you clean and handle all that other fun stuff involved with housekeeping. Unless you are privileged enough to have someone else do all of that for you, then your hands constantly are prone to suffer from dryness, cracking, and chipped or broken fingernails.
Despite this depressing reality, there is still hope to get your beautiful hands back. This simple trick will also help keep them in that condition while still doing your routine cleaning.
Here's what I have been doing lately. Take out your rubber gloves and an old pair of gloves. Before you put them on, you need to slather on a heavy duty coating of lotion. You don't have to put on second pair of gloves, but I do. Once you start to work, the heat from your skin will warm the lotion so it will penetrate deeper to repair the dryness while protecting your hands from further damage, especially from the onslaught of chemicals in cleaning products.
By the time you finish with your chores, your treated hands will be saved from more redness, cracked fingernails to become smoother, softer and lovely once again. Do try this little trick and you will see a wonderful difference.
