I think I have found my HG hand cream. I recently read an interview with a dermatologist who recommended products with Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) for dry, brittle, peeling and splitting nails (a perfect description of my nails) so I went to the drugstore in search of a hand and nail lotion with AHA and found this one by Vaseline. I am so happy to report that yes, it does make a noticeable difference - after only one week of using this on my hands a couple of times a day, every day, my nails are in much better shape than they were before. AHA works! I really like this lotion - it's not greasy, it sinks into my skin very well and keeps my hands and cuticles moisturized for hours. Just one caveat - since AHA makes your skin more vulnerable to sunburn, I make sure to apply a sunscreen with at least a 15 SPG whenever I go outside (if it were spring or summer, it would be a minimum of 30 SPF).
