I’m a dermatologist, so I know the secrets that make spa beauty treatments work –and believe me, I do them myself at home for a fraction of the cost.
"Love the bag balm for nails that split." "It’s in a cute container and I bought a few extras to give to friends as a party favor." Judy H 6/24/14Intensive Therapy for Your Dry, Chapped Hardworking Hands Are your hands begging to be pampered? Give them some spa TLC too. After your bath or shower, apply your normal body and facial moisturizers. Then give your hands a special treatment with a richly hydrating hand ointment like Bag Balm (a time-honored American skin care tradition that's rich in deeply hydrating lanolin derived from wool), Vaseline ointment, or pure shea butter to your hands and then cover them with a pair of cotton gloves (click here for the best pair of simple cotton therapy gloves that I've found). Leave the gloves on for at least an hour (or sleep with them overnight). This intense hand therapy will help heal your dry hands quickly; they’ll feel so much better, your hand skin will be healthier, and much less prone to chapping.
