In addition to what Bogtown said about Bag Balm is that it will also help soften the skin up and be more pliable, especially as it gets cold and coats the skin very very well. It started as something fair farmers put on their cows udders in winter so they wouldn't get frostbite on them, and so it will keep the skin pliable for milking them. The menthol in it also stimulates circulation which helps in healing too. So, clean first, use the stuff I posted earlier, then coat with bag balm. There is another brand called Dr. Naylors in a white and red tin. I just bought some Bag Balm the other day and since it is something I have seen used since I could walk, I went with that.
