Hands

Hands

I know this may seem like a seasonally inappropriate topic, but it is something I think about on a daily basis, year round, and lately it’s especially been a struggle…

When it’s hot and sticky out, my hands feel dirty about 12 seconds after washing them. Which then leads to super dry cuticles and the WORST hang nails. Factor in subway rides, general NYC grime, and how much I have to pee, my hands are taking a beating. But the idea of putting on lotion on them just seems disgusting in this weather. I need to figure out how to take care of my cuticles without my hands feeling slimy and also continuing to pee as much as I need to.

Any recs for natural methods and products would be so great and much appreciated!
