Vaseline Gloves/Socks for Dry Skin
If you suffer from really dry, cracked hands or feet during the cold months (I know I do - flaky skin anyone?), the best tip my friends and I do is to slather Vaseline all over, then cover with thin gloves or socks. It might sound a bit squishy or uncomfortable, but it really does work and if you're sick of feeling all dry and scaly then this home remedy might work for you too! A friend of mine had really dry hands last winter and so she started spreading the word about her night time skincare routine. So as soon as I started to feel like I was drying out all over, I bought Vaseline and those thin gloves from Boots and spread the product all over my hands and then put on the gloves. By morning, I felt all moisturised and soft again!
