My hands are always very dry...doing all the housework and washing up. I read somewhere that you could moisturise your hands overnight by wearing gloves...does anyone have any ideas....or any diy recipes for tip top smooth hands....

thanks in advance

All you need is a pair of cotton gloves (in the UK, some drugstores sell white ones pretty cheaply) and some good, rich handcream. Slather the handcream liberally all over your hands, massaging it in a bit, then put on the gloves and go to bed, leaving them on overnight.

The next morning, your hands should be lovely and soft.

I like Kiehl's Intensive Treatment for this purpose, but you can use whatever suits your particular skin.

It certainly works for me, far better than just applying handcream during the day.

I have dry-dry-dry hands, and they are always cold. At an after Christmas sale a couple of years ago, I bought one of those hot paraffin wax drip kits. I use it once a week, and it seems to really help with the dryness.

Also, when I started reading about Epidermx I saw a post where someone said, they use it on their hands. I've started doing this also, and it really seems to get the dry skin off, plus gets the blood circulating.

I sometimes use vaseline on my hands before I go to bed. If you have one of those yellow cocoa butter sticks, that works great!!

I know you asked about mosturizing gloves, I hope to read what others have to say because I probably need some too!!

Bath and Body Works used to sell spa gloves (and socks). They are lined with some sort of gel that is supposed to help alleviate dry skin. I can't remember if you were also supposed to use a lotion or cream with them, or if the gloves themselves were it.

I haven't been into the shop recently though, so I don't know if they still sell them.

Just checked the website and found this: http://www.bathandbodyworks.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2109995&cp=2073251.2077090&view=all&parentPage=family
Don't know if these are the same ones I used to have, because it doesn't mention anything special about them and the packaging looks different.

Bath & Body works probably don't ship to UK....but i'll have a look.........i didn't realise that you could get cotton gloves - i was looking at the option of those disposable plastic/rubber gloves........i'll try my local chemist on Monday.......the parafin wax sounds too messy.......and i'm thinking about the time factor - now that i am working 40-50 hours per week and looking after 2 kids...actually make that 3 (husband included).........thanks for all your advice.....very helpful indeed.......i'll try out some of the stuff that you've all recommended....

regard Karina

p.s. i have ordered the epidermx......there seems to be a delay.......demand seems to be exceeding supply...........i can't wait to use it.

My hands have always been dry.......i think it's cause i just can't get used to using rubber gloves when cleaning.......

Marjom....you've saved me a fortune......i was just about to order the Elizabeth Arden Green Tea Hand care set for #25pounds from Strawberry net...just for the sake of the gloves............thanks everyone

Get some thick clear plastic bags (like bread bags) put tons of cream on your hands, but them in the bad and then put your hands on/under a heating pad...Relax for about 15 min, then wipe of the extra lotion and put on a pair of cotton gloves.

I like the idea of those silicone gloves people mentioned but they're pricey...

I think I may be investing in some of those Boots gloves myself Very Happy
I too have been suffering from dry patches on my hands, I have had to take off all my rings as I have been getting dry patches from where I have washed my hands and the water has gathered under my rings.
Neals Yard Base Ointment is the best I have found so far.

You know, I didn't actually realise you were in the UK, Karina. (My eyesight must be appalling, 'cos I've only just seen "LONDON" printed under your username! Laughing )

Yes, I get my cotton gloves in Boots. I usually buy 2 pairs at a time, so I can wash them (in gentle detergent) and always have another pair to use whilst I'm waiting for them to dry. Don't know what I'd do without them now.

rosebud - I've noticed those Neal's Yard Remedies base products for a while and have wondered about using them, and also I believe you can add your own essential oils. Is the ointment very hydrating?

Majorb.........the Kiehl's Intensive Treatment seems very expensive.............so i am not sure if i'll buy it or not........
Rosebud...........i have always thought Neals Yard remedies to be quite expensive.........

Considering that i spend up to 57 pounds on the Gatineau anti aging cream - then i suppose i can fork out for the above creams......

This is cheap, easy and VERY good. Get some Vaseline, Spenco Second Skin Quick Heal and either cotton gloves or white cotton socks. The last thing before going to bed, soak you hands in a bowl of warm water with a wee drop of baby shampoo or hand dish detergent in the bowl. Pat dry. In the palm of one hand, mix a glob of Vaseline and a glob of Spenco with your index finger. (You don't need a lot of Spenco and can use only Vaseline if you wish.) Slather the mixture on both hands, cover with gloves or socks and go to bed. Soft hands in the morning Very Happy

Spenco Second Skin Quick Heal can be found in your local drug store in the Band Aid area. You might have to ask your druggest for it. It's about $9 US. The reason it's so good is that it has a lot of HA, which is one of the best moisturizers on the market.

Karina - www.strawberrynet.com are selling the big 8 fl oz (that's about 230ml) tub of Kiehl's Intensive Treatment for approx £30, including p&p. They say that they also refund customs fees at their discretion, but I've no experience with that yet - although I am awaiting a delivery of Kiehl's for the first time myself.

This tub lasts for months and months and months, especially if, like me, you're only using it on your hands at night.

Otherwise, there are some good eBay sellers from whom I've bought Kiehl's products in the past. It's been quite a while, but one of the best I dealt with was brooklyn_kate.

I just wish I could go over to the States myself. I'd spend hours in the Kiehl's shop! I hear they're very generous with samples, too.

Anyway, before you think of splashing out on the Kiehl's Intensive Treatment, it might be a good idea to pop along to your nearest Space NK. You should be able to try some there, plus they may even given you a sample to take home with you.

As for Neal's Yard Remedies, not all of their products are as expensive as you might imagine. I was pleasantly surprised. It's generally very good stuff, too. I love it.

Marjob.........i used to order from Strawberrynet all the time about 3 years ago.......i used to get charged customs all the time...12pounds + and i did get my customs charges refunded to me.........but my last 3 refunds did not get through..........my letter was returned from Hong Kong...........I have spent the last 3 years ordering TSV (Today's Special Values) in bulk....i only just threw away 3 melatoginine anti aging creams by Gatineaux worth 55 pounds each...and 5 throat creams by the same company worth 30 pounds each...because they were out of date..........now i only order when i have run out of stuff.......

I will look at the Keihl cream some time next month............I went to get the cotton gloves from Boots today......they did not have any...........they recommended that i go to a bigger branch........

Donnababe............The Spenco, i suspect is only available in USA.........but i will try out the vaseline thing you suggested............

Spenco is an Italian company and I think I once heard it's sold in the UK. Keep an eye out for it and good luck on your quest for soft hands!

I'll let you know whether I have luck with customs fees refund from them. I heard that they were supposed to be pretty good, but obviously not always, eh? Crying or Very sad

If you have a lot of stuff to buy from boots.com, they do free delivery - but you have to spend something like £45 to get it. They definitely stock the cotton gloves. Otherwise, a bigger branch really seems to be your best bet.

There is a heating mitt for hands. I'm pretty sure it was made by nailtiques but it's expensive. I remember them using one the last time I had a manicure done...but they had me use plastic baggies on my hands too (hygeine thing I think)
