Recommended Use of George’s
First Time Users
Even though George’s Cream does not contain lanolin, urea or fragrance, it is recommended that first time users do a skin test. Just apply a tiny amount of George’s Cream onto a small patch of skin and leave it for a few hours. If you experience any discomfort, discontinue use.
George recommends that you apply a small amount at first because the cream is so thick and rich. Once you see how well George’s works and absorbs into your skin, feel free to apply liberally as needed. Let the condition of your skin help you gauge how much cream to use.
Rich and Moisturizing
It’s so rich that some first-time users find it a bit slippery or sticky. This feeling is temporary. When George’s Cream is worked into your skin, the stickiness disappears. This richness is why one application of George’s Cream can last for an entire day.
Slather It On
If you have extremely chapped and cracked hands or feet, George suggests that before retiring for the night you slather his cream onto your hands and/or feet then cover with a pair of thin cotton gloves or socks. Continue with this treatment until your hands and/or feet are better. Then, to keep them this way, apply George’s Cream once or twice daily.
Users should apply George’s Cream right after a shower or bath. Your damp skin will absorb the cream faster and more efficiently.
Some users â€“ particularly those who use it on their feet, keep George’s Cream in the fridge. It seems the cream is quite refreshing and according to some, the coolness helps relieve their symptoms quicker.
Tips to Maximize the Effectiveness of George’s Cream:
– Use immediately after bath or shower when skin is wet or damp
– Rub cream in and watch it become slippery and easy to glide
– Continue rubbing until skin becomes tacky
