Burt's Bees

As you know I live at altitude where the atmosphere is dry. That means dry skin, dry nasal passages and dry cuticles. The first two I have handled. The third drives me crazy as the skin around my nails cracks and hurts and I'm always having to put bandaids on them. Until about two months ago. Then Dean commented as he was anointing his hands with Burt's Bees Hand Salve after a day in the shop around saw dust, "maybe you should try this on your fingers."

I did and Hurray!! I put a little around my nails both morning and night and voila! the skin has quit cracking, my nails seem to be stronger, and I have reduced the use of band aids. This week I have even used it on an ice cut on my knuckle (the ice in our freezer is very sharp) and a small burn on the top of my hand from the fireplace. Both started healing immediately upon first application.

This is the only product of theirs I am presently using and I am sure if the others are as helpful as the hand salve, they are worth having around. I'm very pleased.
