With the cold comes dry hands. And I want my hands to be soft, but during winter time just putting on regular hand cream doesn't do it for me. So now and then during the winter I give my hands an extra boost with some help from almond oil.
I buy almond oil at the pharmacy here in Sweden, it costs 47 Swedish kronor which is quite cheap.
Then I take quite a lot of oil on my hands, they should be soaked in oil. Then I put on rather tight surgical gloves and let the oil work on my hands during a couple of hours while I do other stuff.
When I take the gloves off I wipe the excess oil with a towel and my hands feel all soft.
