So recently, my hands have become really dry, to the point they peel, in particular along my index and middle finger (which are the main fingers I DID use to put my foundation on). I tried a lot of moisturisers and some of them seemed to solve the problem, however once the cream dried out my hands would return to normal!! I do wash my hands quite regulary, which could be another reason they are dying out.
ANYWAY!! I went to my local chemist and was advised to use a cream called aquacream! which I was a bit hesistant to use because it is more of a chemically based with urea of all things in it.
However i decided to give it a go. I applied a lot of it over night to the worse parts of my hands and as crazy as it might sound I also put socks over my hands to retain all the moisture!!
To my suprise I woke up and my hands were all cleared! I have found this is very effective and to just apply it at night is so easy! Although during the day I do use other hand moisturisers, keep my hands moiste during the whole day. My daily one which I love is the Neutrogena Norwegian Hand Formula, it is only around $7AUS and each small bottle has 200 applications in it, as a little bit goes a long way!!
