I just started doing Abhyanga oil massage with sesame oil as part of my Ayurveda morning routine. My skin was really dry before, but it was still really dry after the Abhyanga. And it felt like the oil was still on my skin at the end of my morning shower. I don't use soap, just warm water to shower, and soap only where necessary.

The real problem is my hands. They've cracked, split and are bleeding a bit. So what am I doing wrong?
