In the winter time my hands becomes really dry and flaky due to flu season and constantly washing them. I rely on lotion as my hands get scaly then crack and bleed causing discomfit especially when I am washing dishes. I have tried many lotions out there but I always come back to using Jergens Ultra Healing Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer. It really does a great job in keeping my hands moisturized and soft. It doesn't feel greasy like some lotions and it absorbs fairly quickly which I really like. Some lotions feel like you are walking around with gunk on your hands not so with this one. It makes my skin feels softer and I don't have to reapply it multiple times a day just once or twice after washing dishes and I'm good to go. Recently my husband bought me one of those pricey lotions from the department store for Christmas and I started using it. Right away I noticed a different. It felt greasy and didn't seem to penetrate my skin. After a week's use my hand's became dry and started cracking. I immediately went back to using Jergens Ultra Healing Extra Dry skin Moisturizer and within three days I noticed a huge difference! My hands began to look normal again and within a week they were nearly healed up. This product really works! It says on the packaging that it penetrates through five layers of your skin's surface to start healing at the source and I really believe it does. So if you have really dry, itchy flaking skin give this lotion a try! It really works for me and I hope it does for you too.
