No matter what population you work with, you should be washing your hands a lot! But washing takes its toll on the hands, especially dry ones like mine. For years, I’ve looked for and tried any number of balms, lotions, and salves with varying success (for the past few years my go to solution was Burt’s Bees Hand Salve. It works well but leaves the hands extremely oily and will quickly smudge up paper and your iPhone without proper precaution).
Well move over Burt, because I’ve found something way better! It’s called Combat-Ready Balm from Skincando. This stuff is thick, absorbs easily and does not leave nearly as much smudgy residue on your hands. It’s not cheap (go for the 8 oz. jar at $65- it will last a long time!) but I have yet to find anything nearly as good.
What’s your favorite lotion/balm/salve?
