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. If your hands are really dry, try this technique: Before bed, apply a thick moisturizer to your hands, then wear thin, cotton gloves. As you sleep, your hands will soak up the lotion. Moisturizing regularly should keep dry skin from coming back. If your dry skin problem persists, consult a dermatologist.
