am doing manicure and qualify in January but am practising on friends at the moment. Im doing my friend on Sat morning and she has dry sore hands. She had a baby 10 months ago and says she is constantly washing her hands, probably not drying them properly and sometimes forgetting to use a hand cream. I advised her to invest in a good handcream and apply it before bed and wear gloves. Also advised to dry hands thoroughly and apply cream. I suppose its hard when shes changing the baby etc. The doctor prescribed her an emolient cream and she swears to me its not exzema. Can anyone sugest anything at all to help her before I see her on Saturday?
