How to Heal Dry, Cracked Hands

This is a sponsored post written for Neutrogena. I was compensated and provided complimentary products for this post. All opinions are my own. Anyone who knows me knows that winter isn't my favorite season.  I love fall, summer, and spring, in that order.  Me and winter don't get along.  I think I was supposed to be born somewhere tropic, but instead I found myself in Ohio.  Although last year was a light winter, this winter is proving to be more brutal.  I don't like the shorter days, I don't like the cold, and I really don't like the dry skin.  In the winter, my skin gets so dry that it can start to crack and bleed if I'm not careful.  I have to use some seriously hydrating producing in the winter, so that's why I use  Neutrogena® Norwegian Formula® Hand Cream .  Keep reading to learn how to heal dry, cracked hands.
