My regular, everyday body lotion doesn't seem to be cutting it when it comes to keeping my hands moisturized. Should I be using a different formula on them?
The hands (and feet) have thicker skin than other parts of the body, so these areas can usually tolerate (and benefit from) thicker, ultra-hydrating formulas that contain lactic acid.
