Can I use my wife's hand lotion?

A hand lotion can be beneficial for anyone with dry skin on their hands. Using hand cream, especially after washing your hands, helps retain moisture in the skin.

Moisturizing regularly should keep dry skin from coming back. If your dry skin problem persists, consult a dermatologist.
