De-skanked Hands (23rd March 2007)
The GP I visited last month figured my heads were getting bad because they were losing the oil which keeps the surface healthy. She advised I wear gloves when washing and then use a special moisteriser afterwards. However, the moisteriser said to “wash normally” before applying it. I took this to mean not wearing gloves since that wouldn’t be very normal unless you have a vinyl fetish!
But they weren’t getting much better, so I’ve tried wearing them throughout. And it worked! I guess my shower gel was the cause and the gloves now protect me from it. It’s so nice to have hands which aren’t like sandpaper!
