Man Hands

This bathroom remodel has not been kind to my hands. Installing the cement board chafed them. Mudding with thinset dried them. Laying the sharp glass tile cut them. Grouting chapped and wrinkled them. Caulking with silicon required constant mineral spirits for clean up, which burned and irritated them. I don't know how working men (and women) take care of their skin, but I need something better than standard lotion at this point!

This doesn't look so bad, but after cleaning grout haze for hours, my hands were quite pruny. I thought surely all that water would help rehydrate them, but I guess the grout sludge in the water defeated the purpose!
