Many soaps can strip away this layer of sebum if used too often. Usually this wouldn't happen but currently we are all washing more often. So, what's the solution? Well, there are a few things you can do to keep your hands healthy during this time. Use a vegetable oil based soap instead of a supermarket soap. Supermarket soap is SYNDET (Synthetic Detergent) and is more like washing up liquid that a moisturising bar. Another thing that makes a difference is using a soap with natural fragrances instead of synthetic fragrances. Any soap containing real essential oil is better in this respect. Finally, use a good conditioner but don't overuse it as this tends to make the hands try to compensate for being TOO greasy. Also, consider using a tiny drop of argan, jojoba or coconut oil instead of man made moisturiser! These oils are natural moisturisers that have been used for thousands of years.
