Dry Chapped Hands

Home Inspector with Clarksville Home Inspections
If anybody is experiencing dry chapped hands this winter try putting vaseline on your hands & then putting on latex/vinyl surgical gloves. You can then put on a pair of regular gloves & go about your business for a while. I can not remember where I first heard of this technique, but will do it a few times every winter & it has worked very well for me so I hope that someone else may benefit from this.

I keep a box of the latex gloves in my car. When my hands are a little dry from being outside too often, I use that technique, it does work.

Leave it to a home inspector to post this tip. Aren't we the ones always out in the cold? :)

I finally found a product that actually works amazing for my dry hands. Self heated mitts. They contain soy, shea butter, bees wax. Best ever for me, visit www.mymeltology.com to check this out.
