Make Your Own Soothing Lotion Bars For Dry Hands

For some of us, dry hands seem like a permanent feature. They hurt and they look read, scaly, cracked: not a pretty sight. Why do we have dry skin on our hands? Well there could be several reasons: dehydration, use of harsh soaps, frequent hand-washing, dry air because of indoor heating, etc.

You don’t need to suffer any longer: treat your painful, dry hands with a soap bar, and your skin will thank you.
