If my hands are dry, I won’t put lotion on them. That could be wasteful. Instead, I find another dry patch on my body: perhaps my elbows, face, feet, whatever.
I’ll put a squirt of lotion on my hands and moisturize the other part of my body first. The remaining lotion is always enough to rub in my hands, so I’m able to moisturize two body parts for the price of one.
Works for me! Check out other tips at Rocks in My Dryer.
