If there’s one season where your hands take a serious beating, it’s winter. The cold, harsh air can leave your digits dry, tired and even cracked — ouch!
Sounds like you? No need to panic! Whether you’re looking to simply up your hand care game or need to do some serious damage control, these three products have got you covered. And they’re all under $15!
For Dry & Dehydrated Hands
What better way to fight dry skin than with ultra-moisturizing ingredients like shea butter and coconut. Benton’s Shea Butter and Coconut Hand Cream ($11) is perfect for those who aren’t big fans of heavy or greasy moisturizers. This lightweight cream is both super hydrating and quick-absorbing — no sticky residue here.
For Tired & Overworked Hands
Show your tired, overworked hands some well-deserved love with The Body Shop’s Hemp Hand Protector ($10) lotion. This product is one of the brand’s best sellers, and for good reason. Simply put, it feels like a luxury. This thick and enriching cream leaves your hands feeling smoother and softer within the first use.
For Cracked & Irritated Hands
If you’re looking at cracked or irritated skin, Aquaphor’s Healing Ointment ($4.99) will definitely ‘come in handy’. As if its name doesn’t already give it away, this product focuses on soothing and healing your skin — from cracked and irritated patches to minor cuts and burns. The formula is free of preservatives and fragrances, making it a great option for those with sensitive skin. Another major plus, you can find this bad boy at almost any local drug store.
(P.S. — Aquaphor’s Lip Repair cream works wonders for chapped lips as well)
Pick up one (or all) of these stellar hand creams the next time you’re out, and get your hands back in shape just in time for spring!
