1. O'Keeffe's Working Hands Cream to revive your dry, cracked skin.

"O’Keeffe’s Working Hands Hand Cream is the best cream for skin that’s chapped and dry from cold weather. I apply it around 8:00 at night, and even 16 hours later, my hands are soft, moisturized, and comfortable. My skin gets so dry in the winter, to the point where it cracks and bleeds, so this stuff is a life-saver and better than anything I’ve EVER tried!" —mollykat66Get it on Amazon for $5.69.
