One thing about pole dancers, their hands are like leather, they have to be.
Pole dancers hands are toughened over time, become calloused, hardened, dry, and incredibly strong. It's a process we all go through. Many of us will have blisters, scrapes, abrasion, burns, and even cuts from our beloved poles and pole related equipment.
While grip aids are a god send, the skin of our hands still needs to be toughened to take the beating we give them.
I'm trying to jump start the toughening process before I get my hands fully on to the pole again.

In the past I've been able to keep my hands toughened and dry by spraying them with Methylated Spirits. It's an amazing drying agent. I keep a cheap spray bottle filled with it next to my bathroom sink and any time I wash my hands (with a non moisturising soap of course) I dry my hands and then spray them with the metho, letting them air dry - it takes about 30 seconds. It's a quick, easy, and convenient way to keep your hands tough and dry.
Another tip, after you've moisturised your face, or applied your make-up, or sunscreen, remember to wash your hands rather than have them absorb the cream... and you guessed it, then spray them with metho and air dry.
Thank me when you see me.
P.S. yes, minor cuts and blisters will sting like a bitch but dry and toughen quick.
