Again, this is just a pocket of skin they create using their abilities, not a natural adaptation. Growing hair around the pocket to discourage water might be possible, but would make the pocket more obvious and is also aesthetically fairly displeasing.

Skin is already hydrophobic, but something like gecko skin could work in theory. I don't think any of the species that went into making the Feuyaner had such an adaptation, however, and seeing as we're only just now figuring out the bit about geckos I doubt a Feuyaner is going to puzzle out how to make such a thing on its own. Something to consider, at least.
