O’Keeffe’s Working Hands® Hand Cream:

A Hardworking Solution for Dry, Cracked Skin

Here at Burton’s, we know all too well how tough manual labor can be on your hands when you work with them all day. Whether you’re a contractor, mechanic, gardener, or just an avid DIYer, having dry, cracked, callused hands is a common occupational hazard. If you are seeking relief for your hardworking hands, we recommend O’Keeffe’s Working Hands hand cream.

What Makes O’Keeffe’s Working Hands So Effective?

While most conventional hand lotions simply coat the top layer of skin with moisture, O’Keeffe’s Working Hands actually penetrates deep into the drier underlayers. This is thanks to its glycerin humectant base that pulls hydration into the skin. It also contains allantoin to help remove dead skin cells and promote new cell growth.

Another key difference is the paraffin wax ingredient, which creates a breathable yet protective barrier over the skin’s surface. This sealant helps lock in that intense moisture for long-lasting relief from dryness and cracking.

In our experience, this unique formula provides longer-lasting hydration compared to regular hand lotions. A little goes a long way – just a nickel-sized amount is enough to treat very dry hands and cracked cuticles. The thick, waxy texture takes some getting used to, but it melts right into the skin with some rubbing.

The concentrated formula stands apart from thinner, water-based lotions that tend to evaporate quickly. A small amount of the thick, waxy O’Keeffe’s cream spreads easily and continues providing hydration long after most lotions have worn off.

Tips for Treating Dry, Cracked Hands

Beyond using a quality hand cream like Working Hands, here are some other tips for keeping your hard-working hands in good shape:

  • Wear gloves when doing rough jobs like construction, gardening, cleaning with harsh chemicals, etc. This protects hands from excess drying.
  • Exfoliate regularly to remove dead, flaky skin so moisture can be absorbed better. An inexpensive hand scrub or even a clean nail brush can help slough off dry patches.
  • Apply hand cream after showering or washing hands to lock in moisture when the skin is still damp.
  • Consider using a humidifier at home and office to put more moisture into the dry air.
  • Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water to help keep skin cells plump.
  • Avoid excess hand-washing with harsh soaps, which can strip away protective oils.

So, for anyone with severely dry, calloused, or work-worn hands, an ordinary lotion just won’t cut it. The heavy-duty hydration from O’Keeffe’s Working Hands cream helps heal and replenish even the roughest, most dried-out skin. For serious dry hand relief, give O’Keeffe’s Working Hands cream a try. Your hardworking hands will thank you!
