Every fall and winter my skin gets super dry, and because I’m a bit of a germaphobe I wash my hands a lot which doesn’t help dry skin. And I really dislike putting lotion on my skin. This is basically the perfect recipe for cracked skin, and it can get so bad my knuckles will even bleed a little. The obvious question is, why don’t I just put lotion on my hands? The answer is that I hate having lotion on my hands and I will only put it on in grave conditions because I hate having greasy hands.
So in addition to drinking a ton of water and sleeping with a humidifier on, I needed to find a product that I could put on before bed, or in times of major need (when my knuckles are in pain!) that would do the trick. Not just a Bandaid trick but like really do the trick. Enter Skinfix. For me, the lotion and the hand repair creme are perfect for my dire cracked-hands situation and my legs also get super dry and itchy in the winter. I put the lotion on my legs and the creme on my hands before I hop in bed in the winter and wake up to non-cracked skin! I don’t think I’m going to have any dry skin problems this winter!
