The Best Hand Creams to Combat Extremely Dry Skin and Give Your Hands a Little TLC
If your hands are feeling particularly dry right now, this one is for you. Despite following a diligent skincare routine morning and night, many of us neglect to give our hands some much-needed TLC. Did you know many dermatologists recommend applying the same products that you use on your face to the backs of your hands? While you may not be down to do an eight-step skincare routine on your hands, you should be moisturising them every day — multiple times a day, in fact — to keep them from getting dry.
Extremely dry hands can happen for a number of reasons — an increase in washing and the weather being the two biggest ones — but if left untreated, hands can start to crack. To prevent that, the answer isn't to stop washing but to reach for a hydrating hand lotion immediately after. To keep your hands in the best possible shape, we rounded up 12 of the best hand creams for dry skin.
