Question Tips for taping or taking care of skin on hands?

The skin on my hands keeps tearing off when I snatch or clean, especially snatches though. The skin on the pads of my thumbs(both distal and medial phalanges) have a tendency to tear off, and I'm finding it difficult to tape them without the tape slipping off throughout the workout.

Anyone have tips to keep the skin on your hands tough and not tearing during workouts? Or any good taping techniques that could help?

P.S. I've tried using straps, but I hate lifting with them, they throw off my technique, take forever to use, and put some weird strain on my wrist in the snatch.
