The other day I went to get a manicure and the manicurist told me that my hands were dry. When she said this, I couldn't help but feel like I was being dry-skin-shamed. Her eyes said it all. "Gurrrl! Do you work on a railroad or something?"
Other than typing on my laptop, doing the normal household chores and buttoning my jeans - I have no idea why my finger tips get so dry. I'm reasonably hydrated and apply moisturizer regularly throughout the day. Since that awkward manicure session, I've been looking for an extra moisturizing cream or balm to tame my scaly hands. I popped into Moon Juice Silverlake and voila!
I met my salve-ation.
This is a thick oil/cream and smells like tiare - or gardenia for us living on the mainland. It's a nice compliment to the fragrance I already wear and so very emollient. I just need the teensiest bit. Take that manicure lady!
