Hand lotion?

Going to Westy last weekend reminded me of the dreaded chlorine + hands = chaos.

So what remedies do you guys use to keep your hands from cracking on long trips?

PS: Found my own answer, sorry about that:

Surprisingly, I have found that eliminating wheat from my diet has made my hands much less susceptible to dryness/cracking. They used to have alligator skin during boating season. No more, and I hardly use lotion.

A lotion I have found to heal cracks very well is called Rex-eme. Pricey but cracks and splits heal very fast with it, If I get cracks!

Amazon.com: Rex Eme First Aid Cream 3 oz. Tube: Health & Personal Care
