TV Tuesday #40 – How To Naturally Heal Dry Cracked Hands


I know some of you will think this upcoming episode to be a little silly, but what can I say… it works! This hand moisturizing technique does involve a pair of socks, but you’ll just have to trust me.

Like the oil pulling episode we did, you might feel a little weird while you’re doing it, but it works. And after all, isn’t that the point, solutions that work?

This little trick is one we keep coming back to when our hands are a little worse for wear. For those that love to ski, hands gets tend to get chapped from being in the cold and wet weather, than they crack and can even bleed. This strange little trick this works. Do it a few times over a period of a few days and your hands will start to look and feel better and heal naturally.

I personally use it for my cuticles and nail. When my cuticles get dry, break and get painful, this trick works magic. Of course if I simply did it once a week, it would be a great preventive measure, but I tend to wait until I’m in pain to do something about it…pretty typical for most of us I think.

Watch the video to find out about this quirky little trick.

    First of all, love the hair Madame! :) very fun. Great uses for coconut oil – my five sisters and I are constantly swapping dry hand/feet stories and remedies – I’ll have to share this post with them! I love coconut oil on my lips too!

      Thank Kelly! I tried something new. There’s something about Canadian winters that does a number on the skin.
      You have 5 sisters!? Oh my, that must have been fun during the teenage years, lol.

    Wouldn’t sesame oil or olive oil work just as well and you can get both at the grocery store.

      Hi Kathleen, Oil will work to moisture, but coconut oil has healing qualities, including anti fungal properties. Coconut oil also has a ton of anti oxidants which also help heal. I can get coconut oil at any grocery in town (where I live), but if you aren’t able to source it and your only concern is moisturizing, then oil will work for that purpose.

    Hmm, I’ve always hated the smell of coconut oil, even though its supposed to be fabulous…but I guess if its covered up with (clean) socks, I could bear it. My hands getting roughed up because I overwash them, do dishes without without gloves, and walk in the cold :)

    What an excellent idea! I use coconut oil for everything and I finally found another use for it!
