In brief: Skin Health ; Dishes

Excess washing can dry and irritate your skin.
Wear rubber or other water-barrier type gloves when washing dishes or trade this chore with someone else or eat out more.

In brief: Gloves

If your skin is sensitive to dishwashing soap or gets dry from frequent washing, wear dishwashing gloves.
Then afterwards, moisturize with an appropriate cream/lotion for your skin condition or one that is recommended by your primary care doctor or dermatologist, if applicable.
