Hand lotion

This time of year, with colder weather and heating, my hands get dry and slightly sore. What's best for hands. I was wondering if trumpers skin food would be good? Any ideas?

This is what I use on my hands. It is quite cheap out here in Australia. I am not sure where you are from but it may pay to get yourself a more expensive hand lotion/cream if your hands are really suffering. Vaseline Intensive Care make pretty good hand creams.
 
I have used different lotions over the years and with reasonable results.
I have changed my skin lotion just recently and have been Using CeraVe moisturizing lotion with 3 ceramides and Hyaluronic acid. Really good stuff and scentless and reasonable priced, apply some in the morning and for sure just before bed time to let it do its thing of hydrating the dried out skin in the winter months. Excellent lotion (balm) IMO!

Work outside in NEPA so deal with all types of weather. Used common store hand creams and even lac-hydrin 5. A few years back a local small company had a booth at a craft fair, so decided to roll the dice. It is the best hand lotion/ salve I ever used. No more split cracked bleeding hands. They even have an after sun spray that is life changing.

Can I find that in the Kingston or WB area? I use o'keeffe's and Weleda skin food, they work well but I'm always looking for something better.

CeraVe moisturizing lotion with 3 ceramides and Hyaluronic acid.

This is great stuff. I use on my face occasionally too.

A little goes a long way.
 
I have 3 different products I use on my hands.

Neutrogena Norwegian hand cream. I use a match head size a couple times a day. A little really goes a long way.

Cerave moisturizing cream is my after shave moisturizer and by default gets rubbed into my hands.

A couple times a week I work a trace amount of lanolin into my cuticles at night.

I’ve found what I use is far less important than how often I use it. Just a dab multiple times a day trumps the latest and greatest once a day.
 
Trumpers would be a pretty expensive solution. Phil's suggestion of Cornhuskers is great, as is Jason's suggestion for O'Keefe's Working Hands; you just need a tiny dab of the O'Keefe's to get the job done.

Working in the printing industry, my hands go through a major dry-out about two times a year. Both Cornhuskers and O'Keefe's work well for getting me through.

Same brand here, but I use the SA Cream. This stuff works wonders.

When my hands get dry and rough in the winter, before I go to bed I cover them with Vasoline and put on a pair of rubber gloves and leave the gloves on for the night. Don't have to do this too often. Keeps my hands in good shape for a while.
 
There are tons of options for sure.
It's spendy, but not too bad when on sale - but I really like Brickell Maximum Strength hand cream.
Clean ingredients (natural, many organic) compared to many other products.
A little goes a long way.
