Dry Hands. Best Solution?

As winter approaches my hands become dry for some reason. Applying lotions only helps it a few hours. Anyone have a longer term solution? I drink a lot of water and dress appropriately for the weather. Also work in an office environment and don't handle any cold/hot stuff.

I have really dry hands throughout the year, putting on moisturizer and wearing gloves every few nights(or when its really bad, every night) when going to bed has really helped. I also invested in a humidifier for my bedroom which helps too.

I use a cream from La Mer it's very expensive ($250~) but it works for me. There's also a brand called Jack Black, they have something called the Hand Healer that's cheaper and works well also.

Neutrogena Norwegian Formula hand cream...just put some on before bed. You can also use this on your feet. It can feel a bit greasy so I don't use this during the day. I also use Aveeno daily lotion and it's pretty good although I'm always washing my hands, so needs to be reapplied to be effective.

use gloves when washing/ rinsing the dishes and don't take too long showers.

Acupuncture or checking if its related to something else (poor immunity, exhaustion) add olive oil to your bath, hand lotion body shop with hemp.

For an old-fashioned remedy... After you get out of bath or shower (your hands have been soaking), do not dry your hands but apply pure lanolin to them. It will be hard to rub it in because the lanolin is really thick, but don't use too much... this works a dream. It will also help keep your hands warm in winter. Try going with lanolin on only one hand and not the other on a cold winter day and you will find a huge difference in how warm your hands are.

I've got a similar problem and looking for help. Recently I've started to spend a lot of time (four times a week or an hour and a half) at the club. Shower, steam (wet), pool, hot tub, steam again and shower is my usual routine. My finger tips tend to crack and it's very uncomfortable, I've been using various hand creams and it helps a bit. Tried gloves, but water still gets in-between the skin and glove. Any suggestions. I'll give lanolin a try.
Thanks,

Glysomed Hand Cream is the best!

As for me, I think Nivea is the best for dry skin, and there are several different types, so you can choose.
