I've always been pretty confident about my hands; never was I one to shy away from hand-holding or touch. But now that alcohol and aggressive disinfectants have become part of our daily routines, all that has changed. Without the help of intensive moisturisers, our hands can get pretty dry. (Not only that, but for those with sensitive skin, micro-abrasions and skin rashes aren't too far behind either.)
It wouldn't be smart to compromise hand-washing or disinfection for sake of soft hands – all those are integral to our health these days. But neither should we forsake skincare (even if most of us are probably avoiding touching too many things or people right now). Here, we've listed down some of the best hand creams for you to try should you want softer, smoother, and more supple skin!
Beauty giant, Aesop, is a cult favourite so it's no wonder that their hand creams works so well. Their Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm smells sweetly of mandarin oil, rosemary leaf, and cedarwood — a great rustic combination that aims to soften skin, nails, and cuticles. Although it's targeted as a hand cream, it's also safe to use on other parts of the body such as feet and legs. Their formula, which is light and non-greasy, also sinks quickly into skin, leaving your hands without the sticky after-feel (I'm sure) we all hate.
