Can you recommend your favourite handcream for my cracking-due-to-frequent-washing (2 dc in nappies) hands? Don't want v perfumed and don't mind if a bit pricey, as it could be a birthday present if there's a magic fancy expensive one.
I love L'Occitane Shea Butter. Saved my horrific looking hands when pregnant with DC2 (lots of hand washing due to nappy changing DD1, washing hands for gestational diabetes blood tests and the usual pregnancy related endless trips to the loo). The consultant's helpful advice was to wash my hands less - luckily the shea butter worked!
Aveeno lotion... not classy i guess but if i slather loads on at night my hads are repaired by the morning... I had hideous dry skin and splitting knuckles from endless washing and the cold and it seems to cure them overnight...
