Liz: This post is all Jane. She calls me an Armadillo (and others have likened my feet to those of a Balinese fire walker) because she thinks I never moisturize (I do) but I certainly do not sleep in gloves and socks (I'm sure your husband loves that, Jane).
Jane: I promise you this is the easiest trick in the world and you will thank me! When I take yoga, I can barely concentrate on my poses because I am so distracted by the cracked feet around me. I'm here to tell you it's not necessary. Just follow these 3 simple steps to soft hands and feet. The first and most important step is the lemon. I learned this from Aida Bicaj, who is the best aesthetician in NYC (fer reals). Sqeeze the lemon on your hands. You know, on the top of your hands - where your age shows (!!) not on your palms. Get it all over your cuticles. Lemon acts like a serum. It opens the skin so the cream can really get in there. Step two: slather on that cream. I use all of the above creams and they all work. Of course I worship my Valmont (gold standard) but sometimes I feel like using good old reliable Aquaphor. The magic is really the lemons and the gloves. Final step: slide those slippery hands into your cotton gloves and go to sleep. When you wake up you will not believe the difference. The same 3 steps work just as well for feet. Any old socks will do. You're Welcome!!!
