7 Hand Creams To Save Your Skin

Washing your hands every five minutes and slathering them in alcohol gels isn’t exactly gentle on your skin. So, if you’re struggling with dry, damaged skin, it’s time for a little extra TLC.

Never have our hands needed looking after more carefully than now. Whether you’re washing them more often and more thoroughly or you’re using alcohol or anti-bacterial gels when you’re out and about, it’s likely your hands are suffering! So, if you’re looking for the best hand creams for dry skin, or if you need a natural cream for hand eczema, I thought I’d share some of my favourites for you to give a go.

The Best Hand Creams For Dry Skin


Augustinus Bader The Hand Treatment 

A real luxury, this is one of my favourite hand creams out there. Containing amino acids and vitamins to help to smooth skin and reduce the appearance of ageing and scarring, this cream softens with skin-conditioning shea butter, glycerine and vitamin E.

Mauli Reawaken Hand & Body Lotion 

With 90% organic ingredients, this nourishing hand lotion contains pure essential oils such as lime and lavender, blood orange, grapefruit and frankincense. The scent is gorgeous and will give you a real mood boost.

REN Atlantic Kelp & Magnesium Energising Hand Lotion

This hand lotion contains Atlantic kelp extract rich in magnesium and potassium to nourish your skin with essential minerals, leaving them soft and smelling great.

Bamford Botanic Hand Cream 

Bamford’s organic products are about as close to the spa as you can get without actually being there. They always smell gorgeous thanks to the essential oils they’re packed with; this one has lavender, camomile and geranium.

Skinesis Overnight Hand and Nail Treatment by Sarah Chapman

This overnight facial for hands is a real treat. If like me, you love Sarah Chapman’s gorgeous face serum, you should try this specially formulated hand treatment. As well as tackling dry skin it also boasts anti-ageing ingredients for smoother, younger-looking hands.

Great Day Body and Hand Lotion by Neom

This is a great choice to have on your desk if you’re working from home. Not only can you pump a little lotion to moisturise your hands throughout the day, the fresh, fruity aroma will act as a mood booster, too.

Aesop Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm

This vegan hand balm softens skin without making them greasy, with a blend of natural ingredients including Mandarin Rind, Rosemary Leaf and Cedar Atlas. It’s a great all purpose moisturising balm to have in your bag for chapped skin.
