We are familiar with the stretchy discomfort caused by dry and coarse skin, especially that of hands. Various environmental factors as well as frequent washing, excessive sun exposure, or simply using certain sanitisers or products containing harsh chemicals or large quantities of alcohol can also further dehydrate our hands, making them rough and dull. If not addressed immediately, dryness can further lead to skin peeling and minor cuts or cracks in the epidermis. So, here are some of the best hand creams from the world of luxury skincare that are experts at relieving dryness and will leave your hands revitalised, smooth, and supple.
For Intense Moisturisation
L'Occitane Shea Rose Heart Hand Cream
Its rich formula gets instantly absorbed and leaves no oily traces behind. It softens hands instantly and keeps you feeling fresh with its subtle scent of roses.
This unique hand cream has been crafted using shea butter from Burkina Faso, sourced in a sustainable manner under a fair-trade partnership with the local communities. Packed with 20% shea butter, this formula deep conditions and protects dehydrated and damaged skin even in the harshest weather conditions.
