( not joking )...............a great help is udder balm.

Yes, the same stuff farmers apply to cows' udders to keep teats from chapping in cold weather.

Many people have used it on all parts of their bodies and it works great.

Coconut Oil seems to be helping me the most. My manicurist recommended it and I am thrilled with the results I am getting! I have tried everything from antibiotic ointment, to olive oil, to all lotions. Coconut Oil, (Organic, Virgin Organic is said to be the absolute best) is the only thing that is helping me! I have problems with splitting around the nails on my thumbs and first fingers and have been battling it for years and years. Try the Coconut Oil!
PS - I love what it's doing for my face (wrinkles) too!

I use Monsia skincare for my face and 2 of the ingredients are shea butter and jojoba esters so I made my own body butter as follows:
4 oz Lanolin
2 oz Shea Butter
2 oz Jojoba Oil
1 oz Vit E Oil
Gently melt lanolin, shea butter, jojoba oil, and vit E oil for 20 second intervals in microwave, stirring each time. Be very careful not to over heat these oils, the lanolin will melt as you stir the mixture. Pour into heat proof jar. Cool. This butter is great for dishpan hands, cracked feet, and rough cuticles. I bought all the items on amazon.co.uk but I am sure they will be readily available in the States.
