Day 13 - Hand lotion

I know. Hand lotion? What joy can there be in hand lotion? My skin gets so dry in the winter. Especially my hands. And my hands more so in the winter because I was raised by a nurse who drilled into our heads, "Wash your hands!" It's almost OCD how much I wash my hands, especially when I'm cooking. But it IS the best way to stay healthy. And as a result, my hands get very dry, sometimes cracked. And you'd think that with how many times I have to apply hand lotion I'd have some magical favorite. But I don't. Just about any hand lotion will do. As long as it isn't too greasy. Which some can be and then I just rub the excess up my arms and to my elbows. Problem solved. Ah the joy in the healing properties of simple hand lotion.

My favorite is Boots lavender hand lotion...not too thick, smells wonderful and not a bit greasy!
