Yes, but I'm anti coconut oil right now.  That's why I was looking for something else.

I would choose to use something else, if possible.

I don't live in the cold climate anymore, so don't have this issue very much, but I just put some oil on the hands and in the body to solve the problem.  On the hands helps soften and moisturize right away, and in the body helps sustain - as long as you are digesting it.  

Oil mixed with some glycerin may be best, as the oil softens and the glycerin will draw moisture in the form of water into the hand.

Gycerin seems to be a common theme.  I just remember I have some D'Adamo face stuff too.  I could try that on my hands.  Although I don't know if it's too old.  I've had it for a while.

I would not use petroleum on my skin!

Shea butter
Emu Oil
Castor oil

There are some good herbal salves (calendula, for example) available through a natural food store.  I've asked this before, do you have a good natural food store nearby?

Not real close.  That's the problem.  We'll have to see.  There's one somewhat near but it's by where we never go and we'd have to go out of our way.  For some reason there isn't one in the normal routes we drive.  Grrrrrrr....

I understand that/makes perfect sense!! The very next suburb 5-7 minutes drive north of us, I very very rarely go to as I am always going south!! To work & to the city & there are plenty of places to visit & shop in, heading that way...
Was the grrr because you feel you are not being made a priority of? Btw after what I posted re my experience with nightshades I tried tomato twice, which I have rarely indulged in... After the second time I got two distinct dry patches on my face?! & remember I keep well hydrated & lubricated by several means...

I order may items from http://www.vitacost.com

They carry almost everything (including flour, nuts, seeds, supps, beauty supplies), one fixed shipping charge and in comes in a few days so I wait until I need a few things.

Here is the shea butter I just bought (I was able to get it locally) and I love the scent and the way it feels.

I haven't bought dish soap in a decade.  My favorite is Dr. Bronner's, diluted 1/2 and 1/2 with water in a pump bottle on the sink.
Soon after I read this, I bought a new Bronner's 944 ml. liquid soap bottle - lavender is my favourite - and my life has changed! Absolutely upgraded! It's much much better and friendlier than the friendly Ecover dish liquid I've been using for years, eradicates easily the most obstinate food smells (= sardines, lamb fat). I use it for dishes and hands and I am happy. The kitchen is upgraded, nice and cozy.  Thanks!

Have a small bottle of almond oil at the front of the fridge and use it all day long! Incredible! Absolutely incredible!

You're welcome, Yaeli.    I like lavender on the bathroom sink and peppermint on the kitchen sink.  I've started buying it in gallon jugs and diluting it into my own pretty glass pump bottles.  Wonderful stuff.  I like Ecover brand toilet cleaner but that's all.

Almond oil sounds like a good idea.  I have a bottle, but it's been opened a long time and I probably don't want to use it now.  And my son is highly allergic to nuts, and if I'm cooking for him, that would not be good.

I think this is the handcream that I wouldn't be without... though seems to be called by another name in UK, or that might be because it is a very long time since I stocked up!

http://shop.avon.com/shop/product.aspx?pf_id=41894

or this

It definitely has glycerine and silicon in it - I hate wearing gloves also!

The tactile sense is of highest importance in cleaning dishes. When I wear gloves, I miss many little/tiny spots and bumps that stick to the dishes and these remained uncleaned.

I've been using gloves to wash my dishes, most of the time.  I do use a dishwasher for most things, but I have to rinse them and I use them for that too.

Even if you are not cooking for him, it wouldn't be a good idea to use any product made from nuts. My son, also highly allergic (we just have more in common every time!) has had reactions from smelling nuts. Very scary.

Well, I eat lots of nuts, so, I just don't cross contaminate.  He is fine.  Well, for the most part.  I'll tell you a story though.  One time I was eating walnuts.  And then I rubbed his back without washing my hands.  You know, he was just sitting next to me and with one hand I was massaging his neck.  And his neck got all bumpy and crazy and itchy within minutes.  Pretty wild.  He's more allergic to fish than nuts.  And it depends on the nut.  He can get away eating peanut butter and not having huge reactions.  Because before we knew, he'd eat it.  But other nuts like walnuts or pecans, they're much worse.  One time my Mom gave him some kind of baked item with slivered almonds on top, without thinking about it and within 2 minutes of eating it he puked it back up.  It's crazy.

Mine would crack to the point of bleeding till I discovered a natural remedy. I spray my hands with rose water then apply glycerine and a pair of cotton gloves before bed. Good luck.


Cream/ lotion/ oil/ butter of choice and cotton gloves in bed sorts out the messy side of some of these   The thicker, the better for quick relief.

While everyone that made the point of 'fixing from the inside out' is absolutely right, it sounds to me that your body isn't making oil quick enough to keep up with all the washing up, hence you need outside help too!

I think that maybe in the summer your skin dries off quicker and therefore for longer periods, because the air is warmer & drier.
My hands react very quick to winter coldness and wind with rough skin, burning sensation etc and I am speculating that it is linked to the temperature.

Would it be worth trying body powder to get them dry? Is that 'bad' stuff?? I have no idea- don't use it myself...

yvonne, I think you have it backwards with the humidity.  Right now in winter the humidity has been around 30-35% in our house.  In the summer it can get as high as 70% in the house.  And more outside of course.  It's much more moist here in the summer.  There are periods in mid summer where it gets a little bit drier than that, but it would be weird for it to drop below 50% in the house in the summer.  And outside too.  I'm not sure what it is outside now, but when it's real cold out, it's dry.  I'm not sure where you are from, but that's how it works around here.  Wisconsin.

OH WOW YOU ARE FROM IRELAND!!!!!  I am so wanting to learn more about my Heritage and take the time to look into it.  We have a lot of Irish in us.  My kids have it too because my wife's family has it also.  I have a Great Grandpa who was McDowell and I have his tree back to "The Black Gaels" or something like that.  His wife was an O'Neal.  Which was Irish too I guess.  Then my wives Grandpa was Irish.  My son is a Red headed green eyed kid. It's kind of a dark red but it's red.  And his eyes are kind of a green/grey/with a hint of light brown (weird), but they're definitely not very blue.  My daughter and I have blue.

The humidity was 11% outside about a week ago here. I didn't check the inside. But I have to admit that I always thought that the humidity was higher in the winter, too, until I started noticing it about a year ago. I have never seen it lower than 25% in the summer.
