On many occasions, I've read something that made me think I should call 911 immediately. There is so much information out there, it's a bit overwhelming and can be downright scary! It took me a while to understand that I'm working out parts of my body I neglected for years. Although the trainers are very understanding and know how to handle a newbie, I'm being pushed. I have to challenge myself to get the results I want. "No pain, no gain", but my goodness! It hurts...I hurt.
I now have minor calluses on my hands as a result of the dumbbells, pullup bars and the floor workouts. I already have my Dad's shaped hands, but now they're a bit rough. While at the gym, I will be using gloves.
When at home, my process of relaxation is a foot bath, which doubles as a hand softener. I don't like baths, I prefer showers, so I don't get to experience the Epsom salt bath. What I do before a hot shower is soak my hands, then feet in the foot spa. Once a week I use a pumice stone to file down the rough area of my palms and feet. After my shower, I moisturize. Here are some products that work well in maintaining soft skin.

Even better, the Dr. Scholl's Paraffin Bath with Temp Control. It has 4 temperature heat settings and provides a paraffin wax treatment. In the box is 3 lbs of wax, a set of thermal mitts and 30 glove liners for easy use.
