Let me take a bit of a detour ... Monkey has inherited my dry skin. You know how some babies have the softest skin -- especially on their chubby thighs? That was not my little guy. Instead, he had little rough, red patches of dry skin that he itched constantly. I was determined to find a cream that worked for him and was free of harsh ingredients. My search ended with Calendula Baby Cream by Weleda Baby. Calendula is a flower and its extract soothes, heals and protects his sensitive skin, making it baby soft.
And, this cream has also worked wonders on my hands. I use it before bed and I've noticed a dramatic improvement. It's thick, but it absorbs fairly quickly and the fact that I only have to use it once a day means grease-free hands during the day.
Now, my next resolution is to wear sunscreen on my hands daily since they are constantly exposed pushing a stroller and playing outside with Monkey...no more sun spots to defy my age!
Do you have any hand cream favourites to share?
