Healthy hands: Three hand lotions to save your skin

I always suffer from dry hands in the fall and winter, however, lately with all the hand washing and sanitizing I have been doing, my hands have been feeling and looking a little dull and dry lately as well.

I have a lot of office staples, with one of them being a good hand moisturizer. I always have to have a hand lotion at my desk.  At home, I have one on my coffee table, beside my bed, heck, I even have a little one in my purse. Our hands get used a lot, so it’s important that you are keeping them nice and moisturized.  Because moisturized hands equals healthy hands.

Anyways, if you are on the hunt for a good hand lotion, I have rounded up some newer ones I have received lately, all of which come in handy smaller packaging, meaning they are compact enough to follow you wherever you may go.

Lotus Aroma Intensive Hand Repair cream

Lotus Aroma Intensive Hand Repair Cream

I’m brand new to Lotus Aroma, but they recently sent me a box of wellness goodies, including essential oils and a diffuser, body oil, this hand cream, and even hand sanitizer (seriously, who would have thought I would get this excited about hand sanitizer?!).

The Intensive Hand Repair Cream (C$16.99) is designed to relieve damaged, dry, and chapped hands, leaving them feeling soft and nourished. The formula includes minerals, omegas, vitamins, and antioxidants, and the star ingredient is gatuline, which is a plant-based compound that significantly reduces water loss and protects the skin barrier.

This hand cream is also vegan, gluten-free, and GMO free.  Its active ingredients are 100 per cent plant based and it has a 99.8 per cent authentic natural formula.

Mary Kay Satin Hands

Mary Kay Satin Hands Protecting Softener and Nourishing Shea Cream

You guys know I like Mary Kay products and I’ve had a few of their Satin Hands products throughout the years.

For the most moisturized hands, take a look at this range, which also includes a Refining Shea Scrub.  For some intense care, first go in with the scrub (you can get all three products as a set for C$51), and then apply the Nourishing Shea Cream and then the Protecting Softener.

Out of all three products, I would go with the Nourishing Shea Cream, since this is something you can bring with you everywhere. The protecting softener is nice but is aimed for more extra dry and chapped skin since it has a more petroleum consistency to it. It would also be great to use as a hand mask.  Apply this first, then put gloves on to lock in the moisture.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hand Cream

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hand Gel Cream

I love Neutrogena’s Hydro Boost line, so naturally when I saw there was a hand cream, I knew I would instantly love it.

The Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hand Gel Cream (C$9.99) brings the brand’s facial hydration expertise to your hands.  This is an ultra-light gel-cream formula that is powered by hyaluronic acid and is aimed to maintain the skin’s moisture barrier and lock in hydration.

Best part is, it’s a non-greasy feeling, meaning that you won’t be clenching your hands trying to get them to absorb all that extra product (clammy hands are the worst).

Hand lotions from Mary Kay, Lotus Aroma, and Neutrogena

No matter what hand cream you pick up, I’m sure it will do a great job of protecting your hands and keeping them nourished. It’s obviously very important that we are washing our hands lots to keep us safe and healthy, but make sure to keep a hand lotion on you as well to protect this valuable body part against dehydration.
