Why are my hands so rough? read below!

I'm a young teen, I play softball and basketball and my hands are so rough. I have tried baby oil and lotion but neither helped, so what else can I do?

It could be the weather if it's cold, reframe from washing your hands with hot-hot water, and just keep putting on lotion, at night time too.

I don't think painting your nails will help with dry skin....

They can take off dry skin. They have fish that eat the dry skin. It's fun too.

I thought those fish could give you a disease...

It could be because of you playing sports as it will roughen the skin, try exfoliation or getting one of those pads you used to get rid of dead skin on your feet. you can find hand masks at beauty stores. they could also help.

Try Aquaphor. It's specially made for dry skin. It helps. I have trouble with dry hands too, particularly during the winter time. Sometimes it gets so bad that a little dot of blood turns up, but lotion usually works alright for me. Assuming your hands are dried and cracked, I'll give you THIS website: http://www.buzzle.com/articles/dry-cracked-hands.html I hope things get better!!!

By the name we don't know whether you are a guy or girl. I will guess that you are a girl since you want 'soft' hands. There is a product called "Udder Cream". Put it on your hands then put on cotton mittens or gloves that 'breath' each night before you go to bed. That will help.

It is very likely it is because of the impact your hands take in softball and basketball. Also, I know for me my hands always get very dry during the winter. Try using lotion daily on a regular schedule, if your hands are very rough and dry use it about three times a day: Morning, afternoon, night. Make sure to put it on after your sports and teeny tiny amount before, don't make your hands to slippery!! (: Hope I helped!
