Paul, I’m a fan of aloe vera, sold in tubes in the U.S. for about $4.00. “Lily of the Desert” brand carries 99% Aloe Vera Gelly. Apparently this will go deeper under your outer skin than lotions just containing a small percentage of aloe vera. When you rub it onto hands or other parts of your body, it will be absorbed nicely in about one minute. Applied after showering, or before retiring, you will notice improved moisturization, and smoothness.
