Mary Corbet tackles the issue of dry, rough hands.
I suffer from split skin on my fingertips in the winter, courtesy of genetics. (Mom had the same problem.) If you do as well, I highly recommend Liquid Bandage. It stings when you put it on a split but it quickly seals the split, protecting you from infection. It is available under various brand names but they all seem to work, except I cannot recommend the spray on version as the nozzle is plugged every time you use it. This is the sort of item I'm recommending for split finger tip skin.
Lots of my friends have similar problems and recommend quite a few brand name lotions to help heal and prevent dry skin on one's hands. Note that these are not to be applied just before stitching. You'll want to go with lotions specifically made to be non-greasy for that. (I use Udderly Smooth.)
In alphabetic order:
Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion
CeraVe Healing Ointment
L'Occitane en Provence Creme Mains
Luberiderm Intense Skin Repair Lotion
Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream
Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula
