If you're reading this, you probably have dry hands because, well, most of us have dry hands right now. The months of handwashing and sanitizer have likely left your paws feeling parched. But fear not! We have two handy (pun, intended) products that are guaranteed to give your hands some much-needed TLC, nourishment, and hydration.
The Hand Mask: Patchology Perfect Ten Self-Warming Hand and Cuticle Mask
Not used a hand mask before? These clever self-warming masking 'mittens' are packed with nourishing ingredients like glycerin, coconut oil, and shea butter. Using the same insulation technology as space blankets, they lock in your natural body heat to allow the softening formula inside to better penetrate the skin. In just ten minutes, chapped hands are left rejuvenated and supple, while cuticles are softened too!
Not only is this hand cream seriously effective, but it also smells glorious, and looks super chic too. Lightly scented with Oribe's signature Côte d’Azur fragrance (it's slightly fruit and musky and smells incredible) this contains a nourishing and hydrating blend of ingredients including sweet almond oil, shea butter, sodium hyaluronate, aloe leaf juice, and glycerin to hydrate and smooth, whilst restoring suppleness. Massage a small amount into your hands and it will quickly sink into the skin without leaving any unwanted greasiness. Or, apply a thicker layer before bed.
Top tip: The backs of your hands are exposed to the elements more than other parts of your body, so be sure to apply SPF to your hands on sunny days and reapply regularly. Also, when you're applying your skincare in the mornings and evenings, you can always rub any excess into the backs of your hands for extra nourishment!
