CHARACTER FROM SKIN TEXTURE
When reading hands, it is essential to take in as many factors as possible to fully understand the make-up of the individual.
Taking note of the skin texture and consistency of the flesh should be one of the first to receive your attention.
These factors can alter or add to the meaning of some natural traits; the delicate skin lessens the qualities giving some refined (sophisticated) or sensitive characteristics. Coarse skin shows the opposite, a lack of refinement. The thicker the skin, the better it functions to protect the body from toxins. Therefore, thick skinned people do not get sick nearly as often as thin-skinned folk. Although when they do, it comes suddenly, usually without warning.
AVERAGE (SLIGHTLY SMOOTH)
Mostly found in women, the healthy skin is not so soft to be silky nor will it feel or look coarse. The ridges are relatively well visible, and the texture is like paper. The medium skin shows a reasonable amount of energy and sensitivity. They are receptive and casual with good social and communication skills. The type you would find in a lawyer, doctor or office worker.
AVERAGE (SLIGHTLY COARSE)
The ridges on the palm and fingerprints on the somewhat rough skin are more visible. There are not as many fine lines on the palm. It feels slightly rougher than paper. This type of skin, found in men or women who possess a right amount of vitality (physically and mentally) but aren’t particularly refined or sensitive. They are well grounded, active, sporty, hard working and motivated.
Thin skin also has more fine lines. Usually, the palm has many fine lines all over, and the ridges are hardly visible. The skin may appear transparent with visible veins or reddish blotches. This type of skin portrays someone with less physical energy but increased sensitivity; not only physiologically but physically. They do not handle criticism well and are often impatient.
SMOOTH AND DELICATE
Ridges and fingerprints are often difficult to see on the smooth skin. The palms, covered in many fine lines, have skin that feels like silk. This type of skin shows the most amount of refinement and sensitivity. They have a quiet, receptive and gentle nature.
COARSE OR ROUGH
The ridges are very visible, and usually, only the major lines are present on the palm, typically found solely in men. This skin may feel hard and abrasive to the touch, much like sandpaper.
The rough skin belongs to the less sophisticated, more animalistic individual. For this reason, sensitivity or empathy does not come naturally to them. He is happiest in the great outdoors and quickly feels at unease if stuck in between walls too long.
He is the manual worker who is physically robust and vigorous, commonly seen in farmers, builders, and mechanics.
Very rough skin (if, not formed by hard labour) can indicate long-term stress. (See the physical effects).
Thick skin naturally comes with deeper clearer lines. The colour is even with skin ridges and fingerprints clearly visible. These people are robust, energetic and healthy but may lack sensitivity towards others if the texture is coarse. The term thick skinned, which means someone who is insensitive to insults or criticism, applies to those who have this type of skin unless they have a bulbous, conic tip on the Index finger and thumb.
