My husband has dry skin. Very dry skin. So dry that he has to put on lotion several times a day to keep flakes from forming on his face and arms. I’ve told him to drink more water, but he doesn’t listen.
Anyway, if he spends too much time walking around in his socks, the cloth soaks up all the moisture and his heels start to crack. (Sorry if this is grossing you out, I’ll get to the point shortly.) It used to get so bad that it was actually painful for him to walk. Then one day I told him about Bag Balm.
Bag Balm was originally developed back in 1899 to soothe cow udders. This miracle substance is so effective, it can heal skin overnight. My husband put some of it on his heels and the next morning they were all better. If it can help my husband, it can help anyone!
If you’ve never heard of this stuff, I urge you to pick up a tin. You can find it in most drugstores. It’s not just good for dry and cracked skin. Bag Balm can help with burns, zits, sunburns, diaper rash, and more. It can also be used to lubricate things like door hinges and protect equipment from rust.
