A Note on Winter Hands

I don't know about you, but when the icy, galey winds of winter come Chicago-way, my hands are the first to show winter's signs immediately.

I've begun a routine last week, in hopes of fixing some of these symptoms caused by the very frigid cold weather:
  1. add a shake of granulated sugar to creamy hand soap, and wash vigorously
  2. add a few drops of oil (olive, massage, bath, etc.) to your hand cream and massage hands thoroughly (don't forget the finger tips, cuticles, nails, and in-between the fingers).
This treatment is aimed to removing dry skin with the granulated sugar, and adding back in as much moisture as possible with both the oil and moisturizer. All that's left afterward is to take a couple of minutes of sitting around relaxing while everything absorbs into the parched skin.
