    My hands look clean, then i rub my hands together and see dirt!

    Im looking at my hands and they look perfectly clean. I wash them and take showers all the time.

    But if i rub them together real fast, or rub my pointer finger on the other hand......... i see little dirt dirty pieces of something

    Same with my back!!

    It looks clean, i take a shower...

    Then if i rub my back real hard with my finger, almost like making fire................ i see little dirt-somethings





    Anyone else ever experience this?!

    It could be dead skin cells.

    i agree with 2jen...your hands are clean and when you rub them together you slough off dead skin cells and they look like dirt........................peace

    It is all dead skin. It's that color because it's dead. People shed skin just like some animals. Maybe if you exfoliate, it will become less.
    Take care
