There is a product named Bag Balm which was originally developed for cows udders when they were cracked and bleeding. You can now buy it at drug stores. Apply generously before bed and put white cotton gloves on overnight. Not a home remedy but amazing results!

If you have badly chapped hands and lotions arent helping you may have an allergy or some form of skin disorder like eczema or contact dermatitis A coworker was having trouble with her hands and recently discovered she has an allergy to printers ink.
Besides nightly hand lotion (the Bag Balm suggestion is a good one, btw), use a much milder soap for shower/hand washing. Use warm water instead of hot (to retain more skin oils. Pat dry, don't rub (same reason). Also, increase the amount of water you drink and add the occasional electrolyte drink to make sure your body can absorb the water. Many people are slightly dehydrated and don't realize it. The skin, especially on hands and feet, is usually the first bit to show dryness if you are dehydrated. If none of this significantly helps the dryness, see a dermatologist. There may be something unbalanced going on in your skin (easily treatable).
