Someone here said they spray their junk with starsan after sex if it's a questionable date.

So, there you go.

Touching your skin is fine but be careful with jewelry around it. I sanitized 6 or 8 kegs one day so my hands had a lot of contact and it took the finish off my wedding ring. Luckily my wedding ring is Tungsten and quite cheap so SWMBO wasnt too pissed at me.

It rubs the StarSan on its skin or else it gets the hose again

I bathe in it weekly and gargle with it before I go to bed every night. Nothin' quite like the invigorating tingle of StarSan on your junk.

I regularly have my hands covered in it.. if it gets in a tiny cut you'll get a warm tingly sensation. Other than that it does t dry your skin out anymore than doing dishes.

I'm not sure "dries out" really covers it. Starsan destroys my hands and SWMBO won't let me touch her in a non-worksafe way until I've remedied it. Damn you brewday! SWMBO loves you so much but I hate wearing protection (my fancy Blingmann gloves).
I can't be arsed to keep up this list of what's in the fermenters, but hey, check out the cool brewery I own! .. ..
