Dry Skin

Hot showers and baths remove oils from the skin that help hold in moisture. You can keep your skin moist by showering or bathing in warm water, rather than hot water, and by choosing a good moisturizer and applying it as soon as you towel off.

Dry hands occurs commonly, as part of a general dry skin problem, or perhaps that is your major problem.

Do you also wash your hands frequently?

Yes, I wash my hands often.

No, not that often.
