I really wonder why my hands are dry and rough when I don’t even wash the dirty dishes and clothes.

I have this habit of applying lotion onto my hands like every thirty minutes. In fact, I always keep a travel size bottle in my bag and on my office desk so each time I feel my hands get dry, I have them available.

Recently, I noticed that even if I am using hand creams, nothing changes. It does not even improve. I even tried applying pretroleum jelly as how I do it on my feet, but  I still don’t feel any changes. I guess changing brands is not advisable.

I remember back in Bahrain, aside from the baby products that my baby &I shared, I only use Nivea milk lotion for myself. I had also tried Heathcote & Ivory, it worked best for me but unfortunately, I don’t have an idea where to get it from. Now, I have to bear with what I have available here in the Philippines. Sure I can ask friends to get these brands for me but of course I can’t hoard so much.

Anyone could recommend an affordable but effective hand and nail cream? I badly need one.
