Re: [BKARTS] Question re "liquid gloves"



Shea butter, coconut oil (solid at room temperature), and Crisco are wonderful. But obviously you must be careful about residue if handling books. Almond oil is supposedly the oil which most closely mimics our natural body oil. New Skin on the cracks allows them to heal.

I just learned that the beauty secret of a woman in her 90's with wonderful skin is to use a soft toothbrush to exfoliate and then apply coconut oil. Certainly worth a try on cracked hands.

I always used Liquid Gloves when painting or when I want a barrier between a product and my hands, unless I am using disposable gloves.

Interesting - some of the booksellers (including one whose mother sold AVON)
have mentioned that product...also noting that it's an insect repellent.
(One dealer says that she mixes it with her horse's repellent to give it a
better fragrance.)

I have super-sensitive hands that spend a lot of time in water, and the best product I have found for moisturizing them (this isn't Liquid Gloves, tho) is Avon Moisture Therapy hand cream. Really. And it's pretty inexpensive, too! It has a teeny bit of fragrance but neither feminine nor masculine; it doesn't smell awful or sting. : )
