Lubricant for skewers?

Keen but clumsy

I have just fitted some new wheels and the pictoral instructions indicated that I need to put some lubricant on the skewers but didn't explain what I should use. Is it just oil or something like lithium grease? Or nothing at all of course.

I usually apply a grease of some sort to prevent rust. Usually the springs on the end go rusty first due to being exposed to the elements so I grease those too.
