gluten-free Hand Lotion For Extremely Dry Skin - Any Recommendations?
0

12 posts in this topic

My hands are extremely dry. The skin on my knuckles is even starting to split and bleed. I have been using all the normal lotions I have, but none of them are helping. My mom always gives me silicone glove from Avon for Christmas, so I have a crapload of that, but I haven't checked its gluten-free status so I am not using it.

Do any of you have a recommendation for a good hand lotion for extremely dry skin that is gluten-free? I wash my hands probably 30 times a day what with preparing food, using the washroom, changing diapers, etc. But they have never gotten this bad before.

Any help will be apreciated.

I use Burt's Bees hand salve. Its gluten free, smells good, and it works really well. I apply heavily every night after putting the kids to bed. Its greasy, so I always make sure I don't have to do anything in the next ten minutes or so after application. Its so worth it though. I don't have to use any lotion the rest of the day and I always have really dry hands and they used to crack and bleed really badly. Hope that helps.

Pure cocoa butter. Pure jojoba oil is good too...or coconut oil.

Plain old Vaseline (or petroleum jelly) works very well and cheap as heck.

My hands crack open and bleed too! I use olive oil. I keep a open pour bottle by the sink. Several times a day I add a few drops of olive oil after washing my hands (seems to work best with wet skin). That fixes the open bleeding problems pretty quickly!

i have to second the 100% pure cocoa butter. i recently found it at my HFS to rub on my expanding pregnant belly but the most benefit i've seen so far is how soft my hands are. it comes in a round tub and is hard so i warm it in the microwave to get a oil (butter) and it's very smooth and not greasy at all!

I just discovered a wonderful new line of stuff....a small company in S. Carolina. FABULOUS customer service. The Gator Hydrator in Vanilla Jasmine is just about the yummiest stuff ever and works really well on my CRACKED hands and feet.

check this out:

I also love the silky oil spray and creme caressant. good stuff!

Neutrogena Norwegian Formula hand cream. We use it for EVERYTHING--chapped lips, eczema, cracked hands etc... A little goes a LONG way and it lasts thru a few hand washings (I need that working in a hospital and taking care of little ones!)

Aquaphore is another good one.

I use O'Keeffe's Working Hands, which is scentless and non-greasy as well as being gluten-free. It's great stuff - doesn't wash off as easily as most lotions - and is intended specifically for hands that crack and split, according to the package. Mine don't, but it's the best hand cream I've ever found, and members of my family who aren't celiacs agree. You can sometimes find it in hardware stores (I'm told most Ace hardware stores seem to have it), though if you live as far from civilization as I do, you'll have to buy it online.

    • Makes me wonder when the FDA is going to call gluten an allergen...
    • http://www.newburnbakehouse.com/gluten-free-artisan-bread I had no idea they now have artisan breads and now I am upset because these look amazing.  Is it possible that people emigrate to other countries because of the bread?    The wraps they have are really, really good. They roll without splitting and cracking.  OMG...they even have crumpets.  I really may have to move there.......... http://www.justglutenfree.co.uk/#Section2 We bought this at Whole Foods in London and the bread is quite good.  It makes delicious toast!  The rolls are very good also.
    • I agree JMG, in fact I've never bothered with the prescription because I hoped by not having it I'd be saving the NHS some money.  I imagine this will put a burden on some people though. I can't say I've found a gluten free bread I really like yet in the UK, though, although there was a loaf at a wedding the other day that was as near to the real thing as I have tasted in years - but it wasn't clear where it came from (which is a bit of a worry, perhaps it was real bread after all!).   Do you have a favourite? I think Genius is probably my favourite, best toasted, but M&S produce a seeded loaf that actually  is so convincing that when my sister made a batch of cheese and pickle sarnies with it no-one noticed! I think the seeds were a distraction. I had some amazing artisan gluten-free focaccia once but no idea where that came from either - probably the real thing too! No wonder I've got 'gastritis'! I have considered buying a bread making machine but not because I'd make bread with it - what I really miss is those iced currant buns with cherries on the top.  
    • You have the best sense of humor! 
    • Hello folks.   I don't really know what to say, really. My anxiety is really up and down and I just feel a little ... Lost at the minute.   Well, here goes. I should be almost 2 months gluten free but I'm not, as a rice drink I was drinking was glutening me. Yeah, that annoyed me and messed me up a but. Well, lesson learned.  I'm coming up to just over two weeks gluten free but since being "gluten light," and now completely free, the weight just keeps coming off and its a bit concerning (although it does seem like its tapering off.) I only eat whole foods now that I prepare myself as I have a lot of other intolerances  - the usual suspects soy/egg/diary/corn - I also cannot handle fat well. I have seen some improvement, my BM are no longer pale and floating although I still have constipation. My headaches seem to have also cleared, which is a plus. Still fighting the fatigue though. Up and down days it seems, and my pharmacy doesn't have any folic acid which I am low in without lactose! They offered me a liquid solution chocked full of parabens, not too keen on it if I'm honest. The things I'm worrying about is the weight loss, and lingering nausea which comes and goes, and often swings between nausea and being ravenously hungry. I know this is a journey, has anyone else had a similar experience to mine? Also my personal products are all safe. Oh I'm a dude by the way. 26 from the U.K   Sorry for the ramble. Happy healing to everybody   R
