10 Treatments for Dry, Itchy Skin
Lotion can form a protective layer to soothe and defend winter-dry hands. If the heavy, sticky feeling of hand cream prevents you from buttering up as often as you should, try this spray-on solution. Jennifer Hoffmann of Huntington, New York, says spraying lotion onto her hands soaks into her skin faster and doesn’t require a lot of massaging. An extra bonus: Your supply of hand lotion will go much further, because spraying it on uses less per application.
Hoffmann recommends putting lotion in a recycled hairspray bottle. It sprays out lighter and it’s easier to apply. “I took an empty bottle and filled it with hand lotion. Now I just pump a few sprays on my hands after washing the dishes or before putting on my gloves to go outside.”
