I am getting married in three weeks time and my hands are a mess from constant hand washing (pooey twin babies).

What do I do to get them looking good in a few weeks? They are very, very dry.

I've got some of those gloves to sleep in but should I maybe take a supplement as well?

Get hand food cream from soap and glory. Apply all day and night.

Flexitol foot cream. Apply every time you wash your hands and then overnight under cotton gloves- you can get them in the first aid section in Boots

Body shop hemp hand stuff. Smells awful but v heavy duty good stuff.

And wear Marigolds for washing up and house-cleaning.

I wash my hands constantly, and as well as Aveeno, changing my soap really helped. Waitrose Essential Sensitive hand wash is amazing (not the anti bad, just the standard cylinder bottle). It's been out of stock for a few weeks at my local branch, but thankfully reappeared on Monday - even just a few days of using it again, and my hands are so much better.
