O'KEEFFE'S MIRACLE CREAM FOR WORKING HANDS--TRY IT!!!
I'm a member of another wonderful, fantastic site which I highly recommend--We Heart This. There was a piece on a hand cream to renew and repair even the most dry, damaged, parched hands. It's called "O'Keefe's Working Hands" ($7.99 online). I will admit that I was skeptical. My husband and I call our nightstands "apothecary shelves." I don't know whose has more products to soften skin, probably my husband's (his hands have actually been cracking and bleeding, rendering him virtually unable to type). Nothing, absolutely nothing has worked to mend our ragged skin--until we discovered this gem. My first reaction was nothing short of stunned. It is a very heavy, thick cream. You almost need to scrape it out of the flat container. There is no smell. Once applied to skin, you can actually feel the moisture barrier surrounding your hands and protecting them. Because of the large amount of glycerin it contains (O'Keeffe's credits this product's super-effective ability to glycerin), you may want to sleep in white cotton gloves (highly attractive, I realize). You can also use it on feet, and the company has a separate product for that. But in the morning you will thank me. You will thank O'Keeffe's. And the benefits accrue with time. Run--don't walk--to purchase this inexpensive miracle!
