    How does this relate to bicycles in any way? Just sayin...you're gonna get called out for trolling if you don't at least try to make it a bike-related topic.

    I use Trader Joe's hand cream. It has Aloe Vera and no animals harmed and isn't stinky. It's great when I shower at work after my commute :-)

    Ride faster ... you're obviously not sweating enough.

    Whether hand lotion is oil-based (anything from shea butter to petroleum jelly) or glycerin-based it will get slippery with perspiration. Bad idea if you value the integrity of your cranium on a descent.

    Check out Neutrogena Norwegian Formula non-scented variety in any drugstore. Use at bedtime every night for a week, then every other night. Follow this regiment and daytime use will not be necessary.

    My shins and elbows dry out from the climate and the riding.

    I use a basic Vaseline brand lotion with vitamin E. Stops me from cracking up, but not from laughing.

    My son has severe eczema and needs lotion constantly. Finding the perfect blend of moisture without the greasiness that gets all over the walls and on his clothes is a challenge. He also cannot be near fragrance, dyes, etc. Currently we're on this Cetaphil DailyAdvance Ultra Hydrating Lotion:

    kamill.

    if you want, you can use the one with pee in it. They'll say "Urea".
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    You can buy Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream at Costco or Sam's Club and maybe even at WalMart.

    This is the very best moisturizer you will ever use:

    http://www.theawesomefamily.org/store.php

    Nothing but aloe vera, tea-tree oil, jojoba and grapefruit seed extract. Okay, a little potassium sorbate in the aloe juice and some Irish moss to help it gel. It smells a little medicine-ey, but it is JUST the ticket for helping guard against windburn, and recovery from sunburn and windburn. Very soothing. Helped clear up my eczema on my shins, too.

    Full disclosure: I know the guy who makes this, and used to call him a friend, though I haven't seen him in quite some time. But believe me when I say that if he were a kitten-killing Fascist (He's not, though he is a raving lunatic in some other ways), I would still think the skin-care product is absolutely fantastic. I use the stuff every day-- a bottle lasts me about a month-- and I really do not have the skin of a man of 44 who's worked outside basically his whole life. Cleared up my eczema on my shins, too.
