Since surgery have you noticed having drier skin? Have you found a good lotion for it? Yes, my hands are like sandpaper and my legs are flaky even after loofahing. I am using Vaseline with aloe lotion, it helps some.

What are your plans for the weekend? At the lake and trying to stay warm so far. Tommorrow hopefully mani / pedi, I'm way past due, and lobster special for dinner at the casino.

Since surgery have you noticed having drier skin? Have you found a good lotion for it?  Yes, I have had drier skin and I have noticed in the last 2 weeks working full time at the daycare and the amount of times I have to wash my hands that they are even worse. Bleach water to wash the toys doesn't help either.  The powder from the gloves even makes them worse.  I put lotion on and my hands just burn. I think I may be allergic to the cleaning solution that we have to sanitize the tables with.  We just changed how we clean the tables and that is when I noticed the burning of my hands.  Udder balm  or bag balm are both good lotions that I have used in the past but I need to find some.  I am thinking I better order some online.  Straight Shea Butter is good too.  

What are your plans for the weekend?  I have a date tomorrow with Tim and then on Sunday, church in the morning and then back to Tim's for the game.  He will be meeting my kids.  Hoping for good weather but not looking too good.
