Home/Blog / Winter hand treatments – keeping your hands moisturized in the cold.


We’re in the thick of cold and flu season, and it’s still chilly at times so your hands can get chapped from the frequent handwashing/alcohol rubs, and the cold weather.  Working with my hands, I’m particular about keeping the skin on my hands in optimal shape.

Here is a great recent roundup of recommended drugstore moisturizers from New York magazine: Winter Moisturizers.

My favorites for my hands are Aquaphor, and Rose Salve – they are heavier ointments that keep working despite frequent scrubbings in hot water!

When I read that Lucy Liu shares my enthusiasm for Aquaphor, I thought – “Great minds think alike…”

Stay warm and well!
