In brief: Lubricate
- protect from excess cold - avoid constant moisture (wear work/household gloves) - avoid / minimize chemical contact pick your favorite moisturizer and use it regularly, at least twice a day.
If, despite all this, your problem continues, you may need to see your doctor about skin allergies and eczema that could respond to specific skin or systemic medication.
