I live in a cold, dry climate and have cold, dry hands. I dislike stopping work to apply lotion, because then I have to sit and wait for my hands to dry enough that I don't gunk up my laptop. A trivial problem for sure, but does anyone have any ideas for particular products or methods for moisturizing hands in a way that doesn't make them sticky and lotiony?

I'm in Canada, and I was wondering if there is a good skin moisturizer for men. I cannot stand scents (I have asthma).
I used to use something ten years ago called "Face Protector" from the Body Shop, and it was perfect.
I find that many moisturizers out there are either scented, or have a waxy residue (Skin Protector melted in after about 2 minutes and was great).
The Body Shop's newer products are too "watery" and also burn my skin (!)
I have sensitive skin and also suffer from ingrown hairs after shaving or when my skin is dry.

Grody summer sandal feet, cracked heels, yada yada. I know what I need to do (pumice, shea butter, etc.), but in the summer I'm already burning up even before I try to put socks on at night! Is there anything else I can do? [more inside]

I can't stand the oily feeling of lotion! I've been using aloe gel, but in the heat and dryness of summer, it just isn't enough. Slightly [more inside]

I am trying to make a topical lotion using epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), an antioxidant extracted from Green Tea. Does anyone have advice or experience doing this? I am especially interested sources for the EGCG and recommended potency. The intention is to make a treatment to help reduce to effects of sun exposure, while there are lotions available with EGCG as an ingredient, I would like to make one using it as the primary ingredient.

I've heard the following phrase in a few places (namely Family Guy) and after googling I can't figure out what it's a refrence to: "it rubs the lotion in its skin, else it gets the hose again." What IS this?
