Re: Help For Art Teacher Hands

I use rubber gloves when I wash brushes but of course can't wear them during
class. I also keep a nail brush at the sink so I can scrub the paint off my
fingernails and cuticles. I need to find a better hand cleaner though. I got
some hand cleaner from Wal-Mart in the hardware section but it doesn't work as
well as I had hoped. Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. Especially with the
cooler weather coming.
I am cursed with eczema on my right index finger and it has gotten so bad
that I have had to go to the doctor for a steroid cream. She told me to keep
moisturizing my hands especially after getting them wet.
The Burt's Beers cuticle cream is excellent....it smells so good too..like
lemon pie.

Take care,
Carolyn in MA
