Winterize your hands and feet

Tuesday, November 17, 2009


Winter’s cold winds and harsh temperatures can wreck havoc on a homesteader’s hands and feet. But, with this easy and inexpensive solution you can have baby-bottom soft skin all winter long.

After a bath or shower, or when evening chores are finished and you have time to sit, simply slather a thick layer of lotion over hands and feet, then put on a thick cotton sock. Yep – on your hands too. The warmth created from your body’s heat and the sock causes pores to open, allowing the lotion to soak deep into your skin. You can sleep with your socks on for even better results.

Try this several times a week and you’ll make it through winter without sore, cracked, rough hands and feet.

    This sounds like a great idea. My hands are always so dry in the winter they almost hurt.
