hands involves the use of products that specifically target and

lotions do address this problem area, cracks can be particularly

Super Glue or nail glue (super glue works better). Not only
will this stop the pain immediately, it also protects the split
areas from widening or worsening.
2. Lava stone. This is a mildly
abrasive stone that is rubbed onto the fingertips when wet. It

cracks. Unfortunately, it has a strong smell and stings when
