From holding to writing to typing to painting to hand-related tasks, it is important to always treat your hands with some TLC. Your hands are an extremely useful body part, but after a lot of wear and tear, they can get rough, cracked, chapped, or cut. Even handling just a small amount of paper for a short period of time can leave your fingers dry. This is why I am a fan of a good quality hand cream.
Hand cream is a wonderful thing. It has many benefits, such as:
- Moisturizing and nourishing your skin
- SPF protection – many hand lotions have sunscreen in them now as your hands are regularly exposed to the sun
- Assist in smoothing out hands and reducing the appearances of dark spots – as they say, your hands can show your age as much as your face
- Can help with cuticle and nail health
All it takes for great hand health is a small amount of hand cream applied and rubbed gently into your hands once a day and you are all set!
Here are some of my favourite hand creams that have been tried, tested, and reviewed by yours truly and are wonderful:
