Thanks to frequent hand washing and also this tricky thing called aging, my hands are always very much in need of a hydrating boost. My trick is to have hand creams scattered all over the house; by the sink in the kitchen and bathroom, on the table next to the couch, on my bedside table, and in my bag wherever I go, so I can restore moisture to my hands whenever is needed. What I look out for in a hand cream is 'spreadability', quick absorption, and of course how moisturised and soft my hands feel after use. Here are my current faves:
The Jojoba Company lemon and coconut hand cream -A lightweight but deeply hydrating cream that is fast absorbing. Bonus: it has a wonderfully delicious smell that makes me wants to lick my hands.
The Aromatherapy Co sweet orange and jasmine hand cream - The first thing I noticed and loved about this was its divine fragrance that transports me to some sort of a secret garden. Really lovely product that is easy to apply (ie. very "spreadable) and not at all oily.
Crabtree and Evelyn Gardener's Hand therapy- An old favourite of mine. For years now, I have one in the drawer at work that I would use daily to ward off dryness from air-conditioning. Light and pleasant fragrance and travel size is handbag friendly.
Palmer's Eventone Age Spot hand cream - No fuss and very affordable hand cream that is thick and almost waxy upon application but quickly melts away into skin, leaving hands soft and smooth. I don't have age spots but am hoping regular use of this product will keep them far far away!
