  1. Love the line “Go mental with your moisturizer” 😀 My office AC throws air stronger than Serbian Winds and it really makes my hands dry and itchy. Thanks for the post. Trying it in 3..2…1 !

    1. Hi there. Personally, I like L’Occitane Shea Butter Foot Cream (Really good ingredients) and Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream (very moisturising but not greasy so doesn’t come off on your keyboard).

      BUT there’s a trick. It’s all about when and how to apply the product.
      1. Wash feet and hands in warm water. If you can soak feet in hot water for 5 mins, even better. That’s because you want to soften the skin so that it absorbs the cream. Using cream on dry skin is a complete waste as the cream only ‘sits’ on top of the skin and doesn’t get absorbed.
      2. Lock the moisture in by applying a thick layer of Vaseline petroleum jelly. This is perfect for the night. The petroleum jelly acts as a ‘cling film’ and prevents any moisture from leaving the skin.
      3. Put on socks or mitts. This traps the moisture in and the heat created helps the skin absorb the moisture well.
      So you wake up to soft, beautiful hands and feet.
