Problem with hands

It should not surprise you if your hands, which were once smooth and soft suddenly become red, dotted, skinny – as if you wash dishes or laundry for hours without gloves, and after a lot of cleaning up the house. Do not just desirable, is not it? Unfortunately, there’s not much you can do. Hands do not forget to protect woolen gloves in winter, a rubber when you wash the dishes.
