I like to use a tiny bit of Aveeno for dry hands. It can help, for example, doing the reveal separation for an Invisible Deck routine. (Think I got this tip from a Charlie Frye lecture)

Because we regularly wash our hands, often they lack natural oil that otherwise would be present. An option to using manufactured moisturizers is to use your own. When I wipe my forehead with a dry hand, I pick up enough oil to restore enough moisture to help. It's free and always with me.

What I find to work best, and relatively inexpensive, is Zim's Crack Creme, ORIGINAL LIQUID FORMULA. See here for the packaging - https://www.walmart.com/ip/Zim-s-Crack-C......44603245


NOTE: This is Zim's ORIGINAL, GLYCERINE-based product. Zim's also has one or more "creme formulas" that are different from this (though they may be effective also - I just don't know). Only a few drops of the glycerine-based stuff, spread over the hands and fingers provides a nice layer of tackiness without feeling sticky. It remains effective for close to 30 minutes. Good stuff.
So many sleights...so little time.
Cheers,

Ted

O'Keefes Hand Cream (Squirt Tube, not semi-solid), and I also like Cornhuskers. Both products you must use sparingly. We tend to want to "slather" abundantly to help our skin, but both will leave you gooey and slick unless you use small amounts frequently. Both I find leave a slight tackiness without greasiness.

I think that you can use a nourishing cream, it should help get rid of dry skin and thus there will be no problems with performing tricks.

Back for more...

Found a recipe in Gary Ouellette's book for rose water, glycerine and rubbing alcohol. Has anyone have success with this mix? Also, I've seen it around the web the same recipe but w/o the rubbing alcohol? Any thoughts will be much appreciated.

Yes, they are good. But Zim's Crack Creme (original formula) is better, in my opinion.
