No clue on drying out hands....most of us have the opposite problem. What I can say is that smooth finish decks are less effected by humidity and moisture in general. So the Aladdin decks meant for sale in Singapore are made with a smooth finish. Conjuring arts always releases two finish styles for their decks. The Ivory finish is their smooth finish deck. Fournier 505s are a high quality smooth finish deck. Piatnik Club and Star Club are on smooth finish. Carta Mundi also produces a lot of smooth finish decks.

Certain makeup can help deal with the moisture on your hands. You'll need to investigate what kind exactly, because I forgot. Will look into this and make another post later.

I have both problems. Sometimes my hands are ultra dry. Other times they are sweaty or clammy from nerves. I have a microfiber towel I carry with me and wipe my hands off occasionally. I got that tip from James Tong on the Magic Cafe. The microfiber towel is great for removing dirt , moisture and oils from your hands. I have a brightly colored micro-fiber towel that looks great and sometimes doubles as a work surface for cards and coins. You can find them at Bed, Bath and Beyond.

I also focus on easier tricks these days. That seems to help with the nerves and I can concentrate on the presentation. Then later in the set I can bust out some harder moves. I think just being prepared for sweaty palms reduces the chances of sweaty palms.

Hope the helps.

I think Roberto Giobbi discussed about this topic a bit in his Card College book.

You can maintain your hands by using some certain types of soaps or hand cream.

Or bring sand and double tape :lol: sorry that was a joke.

Micro-fiber towels are the BEST invention since sliced bread.

I think I'll need to invest in one.
