We’ve been hearing it from our customers for years, but now even dermatologists are recommending it:  Super Glue Can Help With Dry Skin!

According to an article, by Kim Painter, in USA Today, there are “five ways to save your hands from winter” according to “American Academy of Dermatology members Barbara Reed of Denver and Thomas Rohrer of Chestnut Hill, Mass.”

In a nutshell, here are the five ways the dermatologists recommend dealing with dry winter hands:

1.  Moisturize

2. Wear gloves (in the house and outside)

3. Wash well using moisturizing soaps or non-soap cleanser (anti-bacterial soaps are not recommended as they are drying)

4. Seal the cracks with ointment, bandages, or – super glue. [Blogger’s Note:  Validation! Love it! :)]

5. Know when your hands need help – If you see signs of infection, get medical attention.

Winter can be great fun … so many great activities like skiing, snowboarding, hiking, sledding to enjoy … but the cold, bitter, dryness can take its toll.  Make sure you keep a HANDy supply of moisturizers, gloves, ointment, bandages and super glue in your winter emergency medical kit!  ENJOY!
