Since I arrived in Maine, my hands have been so dry and chapped that they hurt and bleed. How do Portland's OG keep your hands nice and soft?

Here are a few tips I found. If you have any other winter hacks, please let me know.

Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! That's what the experts say. Do it while your hands are still damp, after you shower or wash them, to lock in moisture.

Speaking of which: Don't wash your hands as frequently, because water dehydrates your skin. Obviously, you should wash them when needed, but consider wearing household gloves when you are doing the dishes or other chores that require your hands to be in water.

Protect your hands from the elements as much as you possibly can.

Wear sunscreen, even on cloudy days

Here are some other tips.
