Hand skin becomes chapped from frequent hand washing and exposure to harsh chemicals, detergent soaps, and weather. As a doctor, I wash my hands between every patient, which causes extreme dry skin and chapping of my sensitive skin.
This is the absolute best hand lotion to keep my hands from becoming a chapped, painful mess. I keep a tube in my lab coat pocket and use it all day long.
It's non-greasy, so I never have a slippery grip or leave hand lotion marks on my equipment.
The technology in this really good hand lotion holds water in your skin with glycerin. At the same time it is a protective barrier hand cream by virtue of having just the right amount of dimethicone. To maintain healthy hand skin, you have to use a hand cream after washing numerous times a day. Dr. Bailey's Dry Skin Hand Cream leaves your hands hydrated, but not greasy, so it's perfect for use all day long. It's an unscented hand cream and a great men's hand cream too.
For severely chapped hands, I also recommend you use my complete Dry Hand Skin Repair Kit.
This product has been called Intensive Hand Cream in the past. I've renamed it so that your skin care products have intuitive names that tell you what I think they accomplish; your skin care routine is a combination of products that act as building blocks to help you achieve your skin health goals. Your products should make sense, including their names, and at Dr. Bailey Skin Care they do.
