Hi, I'm Erin Hendley, Professional Makeup Artist, and today I'm going to show you how to clean dirty, cracked skin on your hand. We have our hand here and so, the first step of two is to actually clean it with either water and soap or if you're on the go with a hand sanitizer. First step is just to clean the area, depending on how dirty the hand is, put more or less of the hand sanitizer soap on it. So, we're just going to go all over the surface, on the top first, on the bottom second and then really just get in those crevices too. We want to make sure that we extract all the dirt, as you can see we have. After that is done, you're going to let that air just for a second and then go in with our moisturizer. You can use just a regular intense lotion or you can use a actual hand cream, either or. For cracked skin, it's good to be gentle and just go over any cracks with delicacy, going in grain with the cracks. So, if you have a vertical crack, put the moisture on vertical; horizontal, horizontally. And we're just going to repeat the same steps by going on the top, on the bottom which is the palm of the hands and then in the crevices one more time. You can put on as many layers as you deem necessary. I don't really think it's possible to over moisturize as long as the product's rubbed in; the better your hands will heal. And if you have any open wounds, use some Vaseline or some Neosporin 'cause we don't want those exposed to get irritated or infected. I'm Erin Hendley, and I just showed you how to moisturize dry or cracked skin.
