The weather also is very, very dry and the drier weather is making your hands very much so.
My fingers crack, and so do my knuckles. Much like all of you.
Much like all of you I too wonder, How do I combat this?
I also wonder how do I keep the moisturizing effects of lotion longer, for that deep soothing and relieving effect on my hands and fingertips, especially.
Latex or non-latex gloves are the answer.
Buy a few packages of gloves and a good bottle of lotion at the supermarket.
Insert the nozzle carefully into each fingertip and thumb. Press down and squirt a small amount (less than a teaspoon) into the tip of each finger.
Go ahead and spread some on your hands as you would anyway, applying 2-4 coats.
Once when you have the moisture on each hand insert your hands into the gloves one at a time.
Then let your gloves remain on your hands for up to 20 minutes as the magic works.
YOU NOW HAVE SOME SOFTER HANDS AND THROUGH THE NEXT FEW DAYS IF YOU DO THIS THE CRACKS WILL HEAL!!!!
