I've noticed that lately, my hands are really cracked and raw from all the cooking I do. I just got a dishwasher, which has been great, but there are still all those tasks that you can't wear kitchen gloves for - rinsing food, chopping wet ingredients, seeding tomatoes, rinsing knives.... I think it's worse for me in the summer because generally my skin isn't as dried out as the winter, so I think of using lotion less.
What's your secret to soft hands AND lots and lots of home cooking?!?!?!
