I need a good home remedy for chapped hands. I have a reaction to anything store bought because of all the chemicals. Does anyone have a tried and true remedy for me?

I have used a lOT of home remedies and lot of hand cream for this problem in the winter. I swear by neutrogena hand cream and bees wax hand cream, but it does not work for everyone. The only thing I have ever seen work for everybody, no matter why they have dry hands is lard, you know like Crisco, it can not be the oil either. It must be the lard. It only takes about a dime size, smooth it over your hands then put some thin cotton gloves on and sleep with the gloves on. The next day your hands will be like silk. Do this as often as you need to. You shouldn't have to do it every night, but you may. GOOD LUCK!

Hey girls, I do belive the shortening is working!!!! I put on the "glove" which were actually a pair of socks and what a relief. My husband kept giving me a funny look though. He can laugh all he wans he'll just have to get used to it because it really seems to work :)
