In brief: Moisturize
You have the "winter itch" or "asteatotic eczema" which is a dry skin condition.
Moisturize frequently with creams (better moisturizers than lotions). Using body or hand creams which contain alpha-hydroxy acid (aha), glycolic acid, urea, Lactic Acid can help with the dry skin. Avoid overwashing in hot water or drying soaps. Use moisturizing soaps like dove, aveeno, (oatmeal) cerave, cetaphil, neutrogena.
