In addition to a good non-drying hand cleanser, you also need two additional things to prevent and treat dry hands: 1. to know how to wash your hands in a way that doesn't over dry your skin; and 2. a really good moisturizing hand lotion to apply after washing.
All Natural Foaming Liquid Hand Soap is the best liquid hand soap that I've found for hand washing that doesn't overly dry-out your hand skin. It lathers and cleans dirt and grime, rinses off well to remove germs, and is gentle on the skin.
I teach my patients to only apply soap to, and lather up, the palm side of their hands unless the thinner and more fragile skin on the back of their hands has gotten dirty or come into contact with germs. Then it's really important to rinse all the soap off well, paying particular attention to the skin between the fingers and under rings where soap can get trapped. Retained soap residue will dry and irritate skin, which is why you want to use a product that rinses off easily.
Followed by an application of a good hand lotion, you've got the best dry skin hand care possible to treat and prevent dry hands. My Dry Skin Hand Cream is the best non-greasy hand cream for daily use to prevent dry hands and it works beautifully with All Natural Foaming Liquid Hand Soap.
As a doctor with sensitive skin, I've figured out the best and most practical hand care for my own delicate skin. This foaming hand cleanser and my Dry Skin Hand Cream are my survival basics, and I use them all day, every day both at home and at the office.
