Dry Chapped Hands
March 21, 2018 12:25pm CST
This winter has taken a toll on my hands. They are so dry and chapped I don't know what to do. I've tried the old remedy of using Vaseline at night and putting my hands in socks but it still seems my hands are rough and dry. Do you have a method for solving dry, chapped hands?

I used to have that problem all the time but since I started eating more salmon and sardines I've noticed I don't get it so badly anymore .... it could be that being home all the time helps as well. If you aren't too sensitive to the smell of vinegar I did notice that using vinegar on my hands also helped relieve the dryness.

Thankfully I haven't had a lot of problems with chapped hands in recent years (one advantage of no longer having babies and small children). My daughters, however, end up with terribly chapped hands this time of year from working at McDonalds and having to frequently wash their hands and work in the drive-thru. They use Bates Farm goat's milk lotion, which helps but doesn't end the problem.
