Our hands bear the burden of many daily activities and when they’re neglected, it’s not a good time. Washing the dishes, being outside while there’s a cold chill in the air or getting caught in the rain can all contribute to dryness and irritation. And you know what they say: hands will show your real age, so it is important to make sure they are taken care of!
In winter, hydrating our skin is imperative in order for our bodies to feel at their healthiest and maintain all the extra effort we put into our skin during the summer months. Yes, it is definitely easier to come home, take a shower and put on your comfies rather than spend the extra 20 minutes doing a face mask and moisturising your body. But, we can assure you, a little ritual is better than nothing.
By ensuring you generously moisturise your hands every day, you’re boosting moisture levels and elasticity as well as protecting them from UV rays which can cause cracking and pigmentation. Most importantly, applying hand cream is one of the easiest rituals so you really should! There’s plenty of well-scented – and aesthetically pleasing – creams for you to choose from! We’ve picked out a handful of our favourites that you can throw into your bag this winter.
