The cold weather can lead to sore, chapped hands and that’s no fun at all. But help is at hand in the form of loads of fantastic – and usually affordable – hand creams. Get your pamper on!
First up is Elemis Sweet Orchid Hand and Nail Cream, a lightweight lotion that has a soothing floral scent, which makes it nice and calming to apply, particularly before bed. It leaves hands feeling soft and silky after just one application.
For an oil-based lotion that works well, go for Burt’s Bees Almond & Milk Hand Cream. Although it takes a few seconds to absorb completely, this one’s brilliantly moisturising and leaves hands looking and feeling healthy. It’s also completely natural, which makes it ideal for sensitive skin.
And finally, in the last Themed Thursday of 2016, for intense hand hydration pick Aveeno® Skin Relief Restore & Protect Hand Cream. Applying this twice a day will work wonders for banishing very dry, chapped skin. It feels instantly soothing when applied and is perfect for keeping in your handbag when you’re on the go.
