Weird question maybe, but I have a problem in this respect especially with fine fabrics. I work by myself often, and I wash my hands quite often as I alternate between a lot of different modes of working in the course of a day - working at a computer, operating machinery, working in a clean-room, etc. The clean-room and the computer room is a bit of a killer as both are kept very dry and cool, and the basement storage / secure area is also a killer to the skin as it's coooold and I can't practically work with gloves. In winter, this means I'm constantly nursing rough hands, even if they look OK from a distance. I use hand cream but it never seems to be enough to keep rough fingers at bay. My naturally dry skin probably doesn't help. The problem comes when wearing silk, or other finer fabrics when I have to go out - it's quite often that ties, etc get 'hung up' on my fingers, and after a while of this handling you can see the threads coming away fluffily from the main body of the fabric. It's different to regular abrasive wear & tear since the 'attack' by the fingers is much more pinpointed - so I guess the more immediate damage to the fabric. Apart from donning latex gloves or other impracticals, what would you suggest for the gravelly of hand? Or is there any super-duty, super-quick-acting, super-rapid-absorption hand cream you can suggest? EDIT: I'm really sorry - this is my second post in the wrong area (or is it - it's kind of a formal clothing question, but I wonder if it should be under Body Consciousness)! I just hit Post after reading threadsCould a moderator move it please?
