Vaseline – Plain old Vaseline! This is personally my favorite and the most effective way I keep my dry skin under control during the winter months. This is my favorite because it is an old remedy from my great grandfather. Before bed, I apply Vaseline all over my hands focusing on my knuckles and cuticles then I put a pair of clean old socks or knit gloves on my hands. After you apply, keep the socks or gloves on overnight and while you sleep the Vaseline, along with, the heat from keeping your hands covered allows the Vaseline to melt right into your skin. You will wake up with the most soft and hydrated hands, you will feel like you just came back from a spa treatment. All you need is Vaseline for $4.49 and a pair of clean socks or knit gloves.
