I has helped my skin so much. it exfoliates all of the dead skin and even cuticles from my fingernails. I highly recommend any kind of salt scrub like this.
Thanks, Haydena! I have been using lotion after the salt scrub, but i still have surgical tape over my incision that , hopefully, will fall off soon. I have a few different hand lotions at home that i will try. How have you been feeling?
Happy New Year and take care! Appreciate all of your help!
We have the Dead Sea minerals & salt here made in Israel & I know the mineral scrub is fantastic for the skin. Just dont rub it onto your scar when the surgical tape is removed !!
I am due to see my surgeon on Sunday which is a workday here. When my (right) hand hurts, I take 25 mg of voltaren. I try not to take more than this amount & definately not every day.
Happy New year to you too Cassie.
Take good care.
