Exposed skin care, or care for skin that has become dry and cracked due to extended exposure to extreme environmental conditions (such as sunburn, rough surfaces abrasion, chemical contact or immersion), should first be evaluated by a health professional or dermatologist if the symptoms are serious.
It's important for you to be sure you don't have an exposed skin care condition that needs medical evaluation and treatment beyond the topical, cosmetic, (but effectively relieving) application of a healing aid for skin cracks on the order of CrackZapIt!
Once a determination has been made, but you still have a situation of extreme drying of exposed skin that has caused the skin at the corners of your finger nails' forward edges to harden (becoming 'stress risers') and then painfully crack (and even pop open like an overcooked hot dog), THEN you can seek relief through our product.
As I've explained in articles on the web, I've been no stranger to needing exposed skin care treatment...I rarely hesitated to put my hands in paint thinner, acetone, alcohol, catalyzed polyester resin, paint, clay, dirt, hot and gritty greasy road grime and oil grunge of old car engines and transmissions...
That's just part of the list which includes years of salt water exposure, sun exposure, drying cold exposure...TEDIOUS just to read about!
Some good hand creams that don't have drying solvents as part of their formula - (you know THAT kind; put it on, rub it in, a little relief, and 5 minutes later you can't tell the difference because the alcohols or other solvents have removed the very oils you needed - all so the TV commercial can tout, "No greasy feeling!"), can offer you some relief for the general affected skin area, but NOT the painful cracks...but
.. I'm here to tell you, typing with completely healed fingers and thumbs, that the "...greasy feeling!", including some stickiness as well, is EXACTLY what 2 of the outstanding natural ingredients in CrackZapIt! will cause you to feel...and for just about the same 5 minutes!
But that feeling goes away naturally, (not due to any solvents), as the Olive Oil, Beeswax, and Honey are absorbed into your dry, cracked, exposed skin. Soothing, relieving, truly moisturizing conditions prerequisite to healing of your currently 'on fire' cracked finger and thumb tips is a tube of CrackZapIt! away.
Once the cracks are ministered to, turn your attention to finding and consistently using a NATURAL moisturizer with no drying solvents, if possible...Put a generous amount on the affected areas of the hands just before retiring for the night, and cover with light cotton, preferably white, (to avoid any reaction to dyes and chemical mordants), gloves.
The gloves will protect bedding, and keep more lotion on longer. Be sure to avoid having to wash hands often, or more than just a few wet/dry cycles in a day.
If you can't avoid that, completely rinse, and completely dry the hands and reapply the moisturizer every time. Seriously consider using latex or nitrile (if allergic to latex) gloves if you must expose your hands to many wet/dry cycles, soaps, or other household cleaners.
Follow these simple suggestions for exposed skin care, use CrackZapIt! to 'zap' the cracks, and you will enjoy the relief 1000s of others have!

"Thank you so much for this wonderful product. As an art teacher and child care giver I was washing my hands quite a bit. It wasn't long before I developed those painful cracks on my fingers. It got to the point where I couldn't do the crafts I enjoy. I've tried everything but nothing worked until I used CrackZapit! Hooray! I will certainly be spreading the word about this miracle in a tube as I keep spreading it on my sore, cracked digits.Thanks again!"

"We purchased CrackZapIt! on vacation this summer at Murdoch's in Craig, Colorado. My husband gets horrible cracks on his thumb and I noticed this at the checkout counter. I thought, "Why not?" and purchased a tube. OMG! This was the best purchase ever!! His thumb cracks disappeared within a day. We both used it on our trip through Colorado to Yellowstone and Glacier. We now recommend it to everyone... Thanks for a great product."

"This is the only stuff that worked on my hand cracks....and I've turned it on to my bartender friends in Mexico Beach, FL and they loved it!!!" (Ed.Note: Yes! It works in humid Florida where folks STILL get finger and thumb cracks!)
"I have eczema on my fingers and I tried CRACK ZAP IT and it was very soothing. It healed up so quickly like magic! It has helped tremendously and I decided to carry one tube in my purse all the time. My husband tried it on his cracked finger tips, it worked great and the result was amazing. We want to buy a few CRACK ZAP IT so we can give them as gifts to our friends and family...."
"During the winter months, my fingers crack right at the tip on the edge of the nail. In addition to being painful it's hard to do small delicate tasks because of soreness and bandaids. I used CrackZapIt one time and over night my fingers were starting to heal and I could get rid of the bandaids. This is a "must carry in your pocket" for anyone who works outdoors."
"I carry a tube with me all the time. It's always available to use at any time and really stops the pain of finger cracking. It helps heal the cracks in the creases of my fingers. In the winter time I'm never without it!"
"Great for those cracks on your fingertips. I love it so much I'm getting some for my mom. Better than anything I've ever tried!"
"Heals dry cracked and bleeding fingers like magic. Nothing else even comes close. Its the only way we can get through the winter around here! Don't ever stop selling it please!"
"I work and play hard--and my hands bear the brunt of it. Being a nurse, my hands are washed dozens of times a day. After years of chronic painful cracked hands I found solice in O'Keefe's Working Hands (also sold by Duluth)which healed my pitiful hands quickly after a few uses--except for one deep stubborn crack on the edge of my thumb nail that has been gnawing at me years. CRACKZAPIT literally relieved the pain immediately and then started to heal it--honest to God--after ONE APPLICATION! After a couple days, my cut is now history. No more pain. Nothing else has ever come close to healing or even just soothing this cut and almost everything I had ever tried previously was painful when applied. THIS STUFF IS AMAZING. I can't imagine it not working for anyone else! FYI: If you use both products, I have found they work best together by applying the CRACKZAPIT first to any open areas, then apply the O'Keefe's. Then enjoy your painfree healing hands!"
