Help for Springtime Skin

Spring cleaning, gardening, home improvement projects, a long winter- all have the ability to turn your hands dry, cracked, and painfully red.

A member of my Homesteading group recently started a discussion on the best things to use for Springtime hands. Here are some of the most popular, from people who really put their hands to work in Spring:

From the Store:
From Home:
  • Aloe gel- right from the plant
  • Homemade goat milk lotion
  • Vaseline (applied before or after working)
  • Coconut oil or jojoba oil
  • Homemade scrub- oil and salt or oil and sugar
  • Warm Olive Oil
Gloves are also important in protecting your hands, and can also be used with one of the above methods for overnight treatment.

Happy Spring!
