As hard as we try we can’t escape winter’s dreaded duo – the wind and the cold. Every year they seem to arrive with a vengeance, unleashing their fury on our skin, especially our hands. Winter is just getting started and my hands are already suffering. I could wear gloves 24/7 for the next five months but that’s not the most practical idea, is it? Instead, I’ll rely on a little help from these luxurious and ultra-moisturizing hand creams to nourish my skin and take a stand against winter.
1. Cake It’s a Slice Velveteen Hand Crème
The delicious seasonal combination of orange and vanilla is the perfect scent to lift you out of your winter blues. This cream is non greasy and its silky formulation absorbs faster than a snowflake melts. What makes it even more delectable? It’s 100% paraben free and made with 90% natural ingredients.
2. Crabtree & Evelyn La Source Ultra-Moisturizing Hand Therapy
I was gifted this hand cream by a friend and it became one of those products I use sparingly because it’s so luxurious that I don’t want to use it all up too quickly. The intensive non greasy shea butter formula not only conditions your hands but it works its magic on your nails and cuticles too.
3. L’occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream
I find this cream perfect if you like a more subtle scent. It absorbs quickly into the skin, softening your hands using a combination of sea butter, coconut oil and almonds. Ever notice that if you wash your hands soon after you’ve moisturized, they immediately feel dry again? Not with this hand cream.
