Gloves protect your hands from damaging sunlight, and they keep your hands clean. Imagine all the gross surfaces you touch all day long. I know I often forget to wash my hands before I eat, especially when I sit down at a restaurant.Wearing gloves protects from all that.
I actually have a few pairs that I'm going to start wearing more often. Who knows, maybe I'll start a trend!
