Dry skin: Use a mild soap and try not to wash your hand alot. A cream not lotion moisturizer will also help if you apply it at night. During the day you may try a lotion.

Vasoline and gloves: The best I've found is to lubricate the hands at night with Vasoline and then wear cotton or poly gloves over night. Cetaphil lotion during the day. Sauve lotion is also good and non greasy
