Bees wax may not be a standard tool in your tool box, but it really should be. If you have ever plastered a house or poured a concrete slab, you know how those materials can dry out your hands. It often goes beyond dry skin and ends up in painful cracked hands. Most people use gloves to try and avoid the affects of the materials, but that never quite works.
Bees wax, on the other hand, completely covers your hands and protects them from the drying affect of plaster and concrete. Simply rub it all over your hands before you start working and your hands will be protected. You won’t lose any dexterity and your hands will be soft and healthy at the end of the day. A simple way to counteract the drying affects of concrete and plaster.
