Those Lovin' Hands
"Have you mentioned Burt's Bees hand salve? Very good for
hospital chaplains with dried out abused hands that have been prayin' all day and getting washed between all patients with super-foam that kills everything, including your nice hands.
The chaplain can go home at night, glob salve generously on her hands, and put her abused fingers into those funny white cotton gloves for some TLC. It doesn't make it perfect, but it at least keeps your hands from peeling apart in many pieces (as mine were doing near the beginning)."
PeaceBang would like to add that cracked hands are more easily-infected hands, and working in a hospital puts enough stress on one's immune system. So take care of your lovin' hands, not just for vanity's sake, but for your comfort and health as well.
Hey guys, this goes for you, too.
Burt's Bees products seem to be available just about everywhere these days. They have a wide variety of hand salves and I'm sure you'll find one that suits you. PeaceBang has also heard good things about Eucerin (the kind in a tub), but thinks that product is probably petroleum-based.
Did you know that good old olive oil also makes a perfectly terrific moisturizer for the hands? Especially with the cotton gloves overnight.
