When friction is applied to untrained hands, the top layers of skin get worn down quickly with flakey skin

However the deeper layers start thickening to toughen up against the new environment

As the first few weeks of training pass the softer layer at the top peals away & the thicker layers reach the surface
Now the skin looks and feels normal again provided the pressure on the palms of the hand remains constant over time

This process is necessary to strengthen the skin the same way the discomfort of muscle soreness is necessary to strengthen the muscles
If training stops, the body produces softer layers below and again over time they make their way to surface returning the skin to nice soft gentle texture

Pain is necessary to progress… Not a huge amount, but people should prepare themselves for discomfort

While gloves protect your skin from a little bit of friction… They do not protect your mindset from the fear of discomfort
