Cracked skin?

Our skin produces less oil as we age.  Add to that the exposure to winter air and the result is dry and cracked skin.  Here's a remedy I found to help you heal faster.  First apply a daily lotion that contains urea, a humectant that locks in moisture and has antibacterial properties to ward off infection without stinging.  Then a couple of times a week, combine 2 tablespoons of plain yogurt, 1 teaspoon of castor oil and 1/2 teaspoon of vitamin E oil.  Slather the mixture on your hands, slip on cotton gloves and leave on overnight.  The yogurt's lactic acid will stimulate new cell growth as you sleep; the castor oil's ricinoleic acid will ease pain and the antioxidants in vitamin E will repair skin.

I love natural products. I posted a recipe for a facial with cream - so healthy.
