Touchable Hands

She grasped my hand while making a point

"Your hands are so soft!" she gasped, momentarily distracted. 

Yup, also part of the regimen

Every night, I rub lotion thoroughly on my hands, then place on gloves that are meant to keep the moisture in.
My hands don't chap in winter anymore, even after washing dishes on Friday night, when I can't re-moisturize. 

However, due to a circulation issue, while my hands may be soft, the skin itself looks freakish in cold weather. They take on a blotchy, reddened/empurpled hue. The only time they look good is first thing in the morning, nice and warm from under the covers.

Anywho, in the winter, my moisturizer of choice is Nourish Organic Raw Shea Butter. It's 100% shea butter. It's firm, so I scrape it off with a nail, but it melts deliciously into skin.

I tried doing the glove at night thing and all I got was mushy gloves that I could never wear again. lol. My favorite cleanser and I've pretty much tried from the very expensive to the cheap, remains Purpose.
The only way I found out about it was when I was on a trip and I left my own cleanser at home. I think it's under 5 bucks.

They do get mushy after a bit, but then I chuck it in the wash with other stuff and it's back to its old self again.

Oh wow. Never thought of that. lol. Guess that's the reason I never got that high paying job I always wanted.

Will try washing! Thanks!
