Derma e's Cracked Skin Relief Crème
Skin care for chapped hands
Do you get raw, chapped hands in winter weather? My husband really suffers with this problem. Increased hand washing (to try to keep the flu bugs and winter colds out of the house) in combination with both lower temperatures and dryer weather results in his hands getting rough and painful.
Personally, I find that my elbows and feet suffer most in the winter. Both get dry, rough and just plain uncomfortable. (I'd solve the foot problem with a regular pedicure and some time soaking in a leisurely tub, but given the demands of a young family, that will have to be postponed for a while yet.) I need a heavy-duty moisturizer that will do the job on elbows and heels without leaving me feeling like an oil slick.
I've found the perfect solution for both my husband and myself. It's derma e's Cracked Skin Relief Crème. It's a combination of nourishing oils and herbals, as well as homeopathic remedies for skin that really does the trick.
I also use other derma e skin care products. In fact, I trust them so much that I tried a little experiment. I used the Microdermabrasion scrub on my elbows to take off the rough edges, and then followed up with some drugstore brand cream I had at home, which didn't work that well. However, as soon as I started to use the Cracked Skin Relief Crème, I noticed an immediate difference. The rough skin on my elbows quit catching on the insides of my sweater sleeve, and my skin felt soothed. I didn't need to continue with the Microdermabrasion scrub, because my elbows were becoming soft and smooth, just with the Cracked Skin Relief Crème.
So I knew I had to get my husband to try it. Reluctantly, he agreed. (He's used to me having him try new products, and he wasn't feeling much like being a guinea pig this time.) He also wasn't sure about the smell of the product; it uses clove oil as one of the skin healing ingredients, and he thought the smell was a bit strong.
After one use, he was sold. He liked that the cream absorbed well and seemed to keep working even after he washed his hands.
