My love and obsession over hand cream started many years ago from working in the beauty industry where you are constantly using hand santizer, alcohol and washing your hands. They would be so stripped and I was constantly trying to replenish them. Then it went to a new level when I had kids. Between washing hands and sanitizing bottles I again was in need of stepping up my hand cream game. So over the years I have narrowed down my few favorite ones. Here they are…
Best creams for dry hands in winter
Kiehls Ultimate Strength Hand Salve
If you have really dry and rough hands this is my first stop. This hand cream gets it done. But it’s also nice and doesn’t feel medicinal like some other strong ones.
Aveda Hand Relief Moisturizing Cream
This is another one of my go to hand creams for really dry hands. It’s thick and hydrating and leaves a nice barrier on your hands. It also has a light and pretty smell that is not overpowering.
L’Occitane Amande Hand and Nail Care
If your looking for a nice hand cream that smells a-ma-zing, this is your winner right here! The smell is heavenly (warm almond ish) and it leaves your hands soft, hydrated and not greasy. This one is a great item for a gift.
Adding any of these will seriously step up your game when battling dry hands in winter and you will notice a difference in no time. If you need some more dry skin help check out my DIY Coffee Lip Scrub!
