Wood gardening handled tools in the garden like shovels, hoes, and other small hand tools tend to cause dry hands. Spending hours moving mulch around with a pitchfork, and wheeling it to your flower beds will cause dry hands. Your fingertips may completely dried out and split a little cause some pain. Stopping for some time and coat them with coconut oil may relieve the discomfort. Any gardener will tell you that digging in the dirt with your bare hands can also cause them to dry out very quickly.
