Stuttering Shell: dish pan hands?

dish pan hands?

have you seen my hands lately? no, you probably haven't. and, if you have, i sincerely apologize. really, i do because my hands are a hot mess. well, maybe not a hot mess. they are more like a wrinkly, dry, cracked mess.

hangnails? check.

brittle nails? check.

broken nails? check.

dry skin? check.

my hands are in desperate need of a mani, y'all. sad thing is, it's kind of pointless. at least i think so. i am so hard on my hands that my skin will be dry & icky and the polish will be chipped within days.

i suppose i do owe myself a little treat, though. maybe i should just get a mani. maybe i should be a little more faithful & better to my hands and then maybe they wouldn't be so freakin' embarrassing.

do you have some tricks that you use to keep your hands {and fingers} looking fabulous?

i don't care how ridiculous it is {because, yes, i've gone to bed with my hands slathered in vaseline & then shoved into cotton socks before}....just tell me. help me, please!

Oh, man, this seems to always be the state of my hands. Unfortunately, I don't love a mani like a like a pedi. Just not the same...

I use boots body butter (brazil nut & vanila) religiously after I wash my hands.
When I oil my cast iron skillet, I use a little of the oil on my cuticles.

I'm never without hand lotion & put it on constantly. I think Burt's Bees has a really good cuticle cream you can find at Target.

For your nails, ask around for Nail Tek Hydration Therapy (III for Dry Brittle Nails). This stuff saved my nails from the long, dry Idaho winter. Day 1: nail polish remover, then apply a coat. Day 2: coat 2; Day 3: coat 3; Day 4: remove nail treatment and begin again. It takes a while, but it works. As for your skin.... let me know if you find anything. Aveano lotion and lots of it has been my go to, since moving out here
