I don't know if this would work for some of us, but, I use homemade soap instead of store bought. The glycerin (a by product of soap making) is in the soap and it draws moisture to my hands.
There is a difference between a detergent and a soap, the detergent strips away the natural oils. My skin stays nicer using soap than detergents, winter long too.
I think of detergents as: dishwashing liquids, shampoos, store bought soaps.
Soaps: my homemade soaps
Things that don't harm my skin: lotions, conditioners, oils.
I've found the 'unscented lotions', aren't unscented, they still sometimes have a musk undertone (they use before adding a scent) and sometimes they have whitening agents-like zinc oxide (which kills my eyes if I get some in them).
You can make your own lotions and creams with a mixture of oil, wax and water.
