cracked and bleeding jewellery handsI am a stickler for washing my hands in between tasks and each wash strips vital oils from the skin. I invariably can’t put cream on as the next job usually requires clean, oil-free hands. With Click-and-Collect, and the need to sanitise constantly, my hands were fighting a losing battle and by the time Christmas Eve arrived they were cracked and bleeding.
