Cracked and Bleeding Hand Salve
Just do a search for hand moisturizer. Google, Amazon, otherwise. 2,000+ results. Wt? How do you ... decide? Fragrance, no fragrance. Oily, dry. Thick, thin. Our eyes are glazing over.
Cracked and Bleeding Hand Salve will work. We say this because we work with our hands every day. When you cut hair for a living, you're washing your hands dozens of times a day. Here in the Northeast (NJ is technically the Mid-Atlantic, but we digress), the change of seasons can be foretold (or present told?) through the texture of your skin. Odds are, if it's anywhere between October and April, your hands will be chapped, scaly, and have enough hangnails to make bamboo torture seem humane.
Our salve uses a combination of oils and waxes and butters to create a moisturizing environment that stays on the skin long enough to do its job. Yes, this is an oil-based product, and while it won't linger long enough to disrupt your day, it might make it difficult initially to open a doorknob. Use your elbow. Or your foot. Unlike mass-produced lotions, you'll see results within a day or two. A simple application before bed, where the salve will have a chance to really absorb, will work wonders for your dry and chapped hands. Throw some cotton gloves on for an added boost.
