Re: Unable to touch paper after washing hands :
I get that problem sometimes too...it's not all the time, though. I never had it until I was about 19 yrs old and worked in a factory for a summer packing boxes. My hands & fingertips got VERY dry from handling cardboard for 8 hours every day. It was sucking the oil out of my skin. I'm 36 now, and mine get sensitive like that when I stop applying hand lotion on a regular basis. By "regular basis", I mean as-needed to take away the dryness/sensitivity, and then just every other day or so as maintenance. What's so embarassing going to buy hand lotion? I'd get just a basic brand without too much fragrance.
