Goodbye Tender Hands
Yet another byproduct of consistency, the toughening of skin. I’ve tried my best to take care of my finger skin over the years. Quite a bit learned from trial and error. I’ve read up on what others do, both pro and joe, but have found it tough to distinguish between fact and myth. I suspect much of the confusion about what works is due to the infinite differences in our individual physiologies.
What have been your skin challenges? What works best for you?

So… the 2 blisters was 3… and they all ripped off as flappers on my next Campus session. I was able to toughen the new skin a bit beforehand, so these are not nearly the worst flappers I’ve ever had. The split on my first crease of my pinky is a bugger to heal though.
To say this has been a Shock Treatment for my skin, would be an understatement. I sense a breakthrough as they are definitely toughening up. Just so very susceptible to drying and splitting. Just 1 more split to heal right about where you see the blood blister on the above photo. Been using a Climb On! bar daily and it helps quite a bit.
