First DON'T use dishwashing liquid for soap or full strength on a sponge for washing dishes. It will take ALL the oil out of your skin. By the way, guys, using your fingers to smooth caulk or drywall paste will do the same!

At the first sign of the sort of drying that causes cracked fingers, use a heavy healing hand lotion, (i.e. gold bond, neutragena, something with aloe) at least 3 times per day. Use lots, rub it in and let it soak for at least 5 minutes.

Plan B: Use gloves to wash dishes, cars, in cold weather and repeated wetting of hands. Avoid hand sanitizer, unless it contains a moisturizer or use lotion afterward.
