dry hands

My hands get very dry in the winter months. I usually keep lotion and creamy vaseline on them as much as possible to help. I was thinking of trying the gloves for hands. I have seen them in stores before and would like to know if anyone has tried them and what did you think? I don't know that I can sleep in them, but thought that if I at least put them on for a few hours every night that it might help. Can't hurt.

Re: dry hands

The cotton gloves do take a bit of getting used to. Seems to help my hands temporarily. Kinda like a band aid. Doesn't get rid of the problem, just helps it till they heal on their own with warmer weather! Your hands will feel nice afterwards.
I've even used a thick pair of cotton socks. Seems to work just as well.
Worth a shot. Good luck.
