How does chapped skin occur on hands?

Chapped hands occur when there are insufficient moisturizing components such as ceramide in skin, and cracks form in the cells in the outermost layer of the stratum corneum (skin’s outer layer).

Moisture escapes easily from these cracks, and skin becomes more vulnerable to external irritation, such as rubbing.

As a result, the barrier function of sensitive skin deteriorates. External irritation worsens the problem.
