High Five

Don’t just settle for the first hand cream you can dig out of your bathroom drawer. Just like a face lotion, a hand cream should be tailored to your concerns, whether that’s extreme dryness or signs of aging. Here, we’ve rounded up the best skin savers for every hand type.

Super Moisture: Weleda Skin Food

Sometimes our skin drinks up hand cream without seeming to absorb any of the moisture. That’s where this ultra rich salve comes in. The all-natural formula conditions skin with organic sunflower, essential fatty acids, and vitamin E. It’s also great for other parched areas, like feet and elbows.

Healing: AHAVA Mineral Hand Cream

Dehydrated skin that is cracked and peeling can be hard to remedy. AHAVA’s restorative cream is heals damaged skin, in addition to hydrating it. The company’s patented Dead Sea Mud and Mineral Skin Osmoter, a blend of calcium, magnesium, and potassium, helps cells regulate moisture levels and returns skin to normal.

Anti-Aging: Lather AHA Hand Crème With Evening Primrose

Silky and fast-absorbing, this hand cream is extra addictive. But the best benefit of this formula is one that you can’t see or feel right away: the anti-aging properties. Natural fruit-derived alpha hydroxy acids expedite cell renewal and minimize the appearance of wrinkle and age spots. Who knew you could moisturize your way to younger looking hands?

Calming: Jurlique Lavender Hand Cream

Most hand creams are about the texture, but what sets this formula apart is the scent. The soothing lavender aroma has an instant calming effect. Moisturizing without being greasy, this lotion works wonders on parched skin—but you’ll be using it even once your hands are nourished because of the relaxing fragrance. We're equally hooked on Jurlique's Rose Hand Cream!

Drugstore Steal: Aveeno Skin Relief Hand Cream

The next time you're caught moisturizer-less, just bop into the closest drugstore and pick up this emollient moisturizer. It forms a protective shield against the elements and heals dry skin with natural oatmeal. Best of all, skin stays moisturized for up to 24 hours and through multiple hand washings.

Once hands are adequately moisturized, learn how to make them even prettier with a fun manicure.
