Many of us apply a moisturizer after washing our faces, but we don’t necessarily do the same for our hands. We should, darling! The skin on the back of your hands is thinner than other skin and it has fewer sebaceous glands, which means it can become dry very quickly. Suddenly it makes so much sense why it is so often said that a woman’s hands show her age quickly. So, what is the best regimen for women and what are the best hand creams for us to use?
I suggest you use hand cream daily and consider one that offers SPF. For the day, you can use a cream that absorbs quickly, and for the night, you can opt for a richer hand cream and apply it just before bedtime. That is the simplest way to keep hands moisturized.
Now, let’s look at some great hand creams for you to purchase and use on a daily in your routine…
The Best Hand Creams
AHAVA Mineral Hand Cream
Price: $18, sold online here.
This cream reduces dark spots, evens out skin tone, and smooths out the texture of your skin. The cream is light but luxuriously rich and is made with nutrient-rich Dead Sea water and smoothing Witch Hazel. It has 21 essential minerals, including magnesium, calcium, and potassium. What a great cream!
RODIAL Vit C SPF30 Moisturiser
Price: $85, sold online here.
With SPF30, this lightweight moisturizer works to deeply hydrate the skin while protecting it from daily sun damage, which is so important as we age. We must protect our skin. As well, Vitamin C works to diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles. It may be a little pricey, but it’s worth it.
Clarins Restorative Day Cream, Anti-Aging Moisturizer
Price: $82, sold online here.
This cream is made with a combination of plant extracts, which help your skin maintain a beautiful, youthful-looking appearance without an oily finish. It also helps to visibly reduce the appearance of age spots, deep wrinkles, slackening, and dullness.
Crabtree & Evelyn Ultra-Moisturising Hand Therapy
Price: $8.99, sold online here.
This luxurious cream is free from all the things your skin doesn’t need like mineral oil, parabens, phthalates, etc. What it does have is shea butter, macadamia nut oil, and conditioning water lily and ivy extracts. That combination leaves your skin noticeably softer and leaves a light scent that I adore.
Susanne Kaufmann Hand Lotion
Price: $49, sold online here.
This cream is the perfect size to keep in your tote this summer. It’s packed with nourishing antioxidants including Broccoli Oil, Walnut Leaf Extract, and Vitamin E, leaving your skin feeling nourished, supple and smooth, all while adding a wonderfully fresh and natural scent.
