In brief: No

Any time you want to help someone improve, it is the way you say it and present it, that makes the different.
Dont say you have dry hands, so i got you this. Try something like, i learned today that people who wash their hands alot can have very dry hands, more prone to infections, etc. They recommmend using a heavy emollient & i thought we can try this together. I got it to.
