I gotta follow this. I must wash my hands with alcohol based disinfectant at least 200 times a day at work. Regular soap and water at least half as much more. My hands are the epitome of dry. I almost couldn't get a specialty license as my finger prints wouldn't show up on the scanner. Lotion just makes my finger greasy. And to have a good trio on anything I need to squeeze it to death. You should see me trying to text... The phone slips out of my hands like a wet bar of soap.
Especially when weather gets dry or if the skin on your hands gets dried out from something like harsh cleansers, yeah, I think it is good to use something. Very dry skin just isn't as flexible.
What I use is rather old-fashioned, rosewater and glycerine. Glycerine is a "humunctant", meaning it helps the skin to hold some water. The mix soaks into the skin over a couple minutes and doesn't leave a greasy feel.
I don't like the assorted lotions or creams because to me they all leave the hands feeling greasy.

@MrYikes: LOL! I've never found it to be that slippery on hands when in a mix with water. I don't know what amount of glycerine to water is used for throat sprays for singers or if they use water with it at all. Never heard of vocalists spraying the throat with glycerine, so I had to ask my wife about it. Yup, she says some do, though she never did. Learn something new every day.
I was never much of a singer, myself.
