Butter for Hands and Body - really bad dry skin

Denver, CO

I have really dry skin from washing hands to working with wood to working in dirt. Really bad hands that crack and get sore. I use No-Crack from Restoration Hardware and am almost out. Any homemade products one can whip together that are tried and true from experience?

I have heard of body butters......

PS...I drink more than enough water so that is not the problem....

Also...I read that you should use a preservative for these types of things...to guard against microbes or something. Is that true? Are there "natural" preservatives that work?
