And it seems like very time I put on some hand lotion, I was my hands shortly thereafter! :(

I am not liking this winter at all - too much snow, too much cold and now too much dry skin!

I know drinking more water will help with that but here are some other ideas if you all are having problems with dry skin too:

Winter Skin Survival Guide

Do you have any other good ideas?

We have terribly dry winters and I suffer from the dry skin issue big time. At times my knukles crack and bleed. I use either Avada's hand relief (or some name like that) or Aveeno's Daily Moisturzing Lotion. I keep it in my desk at work and use it about 4-5 times a day. The only other thing that helps is baby oil in the tub. It's just a royal pain to clean up afterwards and if you don't, the next person to take a shower slips!!

If you have problems with dry nasal passages or bloody noses try using saline nasal spray a couple times a day and applying vaseline to your nasal passages (Just on the tip entrance way!)

We bought some cheap liquid soap from Ikea and that makes my hands really dry.
