Unscented Badger Balm is good on my psoriasis. I , also, use vitamin D3 liquid drops on it. Those  2 things and olive oil seem to keep the cracking , bleeding thing at bay.

Ooooh, that badger balm looks really good. Thank you for the link!!! I think I'll buy some of that.  We also got some stuff from Burt's Bee's and it seems pretty good too.  But I've yet to use it in large quantities yet.

Whatever preparation you decide to apply to your hands- apply a generous amount, put on the rubber gloves and then do the dishes.  The heat from the warm water will help what you use to absorb into your sore hands and make them feel much better! Sometimes I save up dishes throughout the day so I can apply the lotion and spend a longer amt of time late afternoon with the "treatment."  I must say that with the milder winter we are having in NJ this year, I have only had one episode of the dry cracking skin on my hands, so the cold dry air does affect it.

Quoted from Victoria
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.


Which one do you like, Victoria? Vitacost has a zillion different ones They have a great sale going on today - in fact you can hardly get on their site!! Spend $22 no shipping!!

Hi Spring,
Yes, my favorite of Dr. Bronner is probably the Lavender liquid soap for hand washing.  I dilute it 1/2 with filtered water because I find that it works just as well.  I use a much richer soap for showers, but Bronner is my sink soap and more sanitary than the bars anyway.

I recently picked up a gallon of the Peppermint (which I used to use a long time ago and got tired of) for variety.  I'm using that for dishes, also diluted 1/2 with water.

Thanks, Victoria! I'm going to order some tonight before this sale ends at Vitacost. Of course, once I get started, I will probably buy $49 worth and would have gotten free shipping anyway! I wonder if I won't like this to shower with too because my skin does not like anything at all that is rich/heavy for some reason. It is almost like it needs to breathe or something if I use heavy creams, etc..

Dr. Bronner's was my only soap for probably 20 years, so you may love it for bathing.  My skin has a need of more moisture in recent years thus my switch to a Shea Butter/Castor Oil, etc. soap for my showers.
