    Are you constantly getting them wet/dry/wet/dry? When I work in the holidays at a coffee place I constantly am and they get really dry and horrible.

    You need to soak your hands in some hot water for a while, to soften the skin, get a nail file to or something to file it down and then straight after you dry them, moisturise! And keeping moisturising about twice a day...... ok so it might be a bit girly for a guy to do but it works

    Lush do really good hand moisturiser. It is a tad more expensive than normal stuff, but it's very good.

    Mine get dry from too much soap (the soap at work is bad for this because it's OMGDIEGERMSDIE soap) and too much hot water in the cold weather.

    Good hand cream is the hemp one from the Body Shop. It's amazing.
