Our hands can reveal our age much quicker than our complexions and this because they lack the daily dose of moisturisers, cleansers and masks that we provide the skin on our faces with. Another reason for this speedy ageing can be down to how much we wash our hands, which is probably a lot right now – harsh soaps and water can dry out the skin on our hands causing them to become dehydrated and chapped. To avoid this, here are the best hand creams we’ve found for dry skin…
It can be hard to find a cream that doesn’t leave your hands feeling greasy or slippy, but this one from Vitage promises not to. Its high-performance formula of Mango and Shea Butters deeply nourish and soften dry skin to make it feel more comfortable, all while helping to strengthen weakened nails. A blend of Apricot Oil and and Liquorice Extracts repair the skin to heal damage and, over time, this cream helps to combat the visible signs of ageing on the hands such as age spots and fine lines.
Take the time to care for your hands and pamper them like you do with the skin on your face. This luxurious hand cream provides the skin with whatever it needs, when it needs it, as it gently exfoliates and repairs the skin from deep within. Key ingredient Sericin floods the skin with intense hydration to help soften dry, flaky patches and smooth out the appearance of wrinkles.
The key to younger, more hydrated hands is a rich, creamy formula like this treatment from SENSAI. It’s formulated with a specialist Hydra Firming Booster which is designed to stimulate collagen synthesis to effectively firm and smooth away wrinkles. Thanks to its ability to deeply nourish and moisturise, this luxuriously creamy but lightweight hand cream leaves the skin looking younger and feeling ultra-soft.
For a real at-home spa experience, try this By Terry hand cream. Key ingredients Rose Butter and nourishing Rose Wax give this treatment a luxurious scent that lasts for hours. It also infuses the skin with natural antioxidants and fatty acids which help ease tightness while moisturising any dry patches to leave your hands feeling supple and renewed every time.
Now we might be biased, but this hand cream truly is an indulging, transforming treatment for even the driest of hands. Its impressive formula works from the deepest layers to strengthen the skin and combat the most stubborn signs of damage such as uneven texture and dark spots. A formula of Shea Butter, Glycerin and Niacinamide ensures that your hands will feel and look their best while protecting them against the environment and the dehydrating effects of strong sanitising gels and hand washes.
