I have found using KidScents® Tender Tush to be absolutely excellent for chapped, sore, and dry hard-working hands. I prepare my nails by doing the necessary cutting and pushing back of cuticles. Just before going to bed, I apply a small amount of Tender Tush to each cuticle, rub it in well, and then massage a bit more ointment over both hands, leaving it to work as I sleep. Upon waking, the hard and dry skin around the nails, as well as hang nails, have disappeared, leaving the skin smooth, soft, and rejuvenated. The results are very quick – usually one to two applications does the trick.
