Do You Suffer From Dry, Cracked Hands?


Many of my fellow bartenders and I always seem to be comparing just who has the ugliest, driest and cracked hands. It's a painful badge of honor. Most bartenders don't have pretty hands. It's impossible. With all of the hand washing, constant submersion in water and exposure to citrus juice, its enough to leave one's hands extremely dry and cracked on a regular basis.

Some people call it Bar Rot. Some call it Eczema. Some just call it an occupational hazard.

I have tried prescription strength ointments, but nothing works as effective as my all-time favorite OTC treatment: Eucerin's Aquaphor Healing Ointment.

When I was a waitress I had hands like that really bad.

I have had that problem. When I was working in coffee 10 hours a day I had hands I just couldn't repair. It's awful. The only I ever found was Burt's Bees Hand Salve.
