With the recent COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak, we are constantly being reminded to wash our hands for 20 seconds with warm water and soap, and to use antibacterial hand wash as much as possible. If you are like us, your hands are now as dry as sandpaper and in desperate need of some attention, well rest assured as we have put together a list of some of our favourite hand creams and lotions that will soften and moisturise your dry hands.
How often should you use hand cream?
We hear a lot of mixed messages about this and it’s hard to know which advice to follow, the reality is, everyone is different, and everyone’s hands are different. Generally, you should use a hand cream every time you wash your hands, this is because washing your hands actually dries them out, so when this is done frequently your hands are more likely to become irritated and cracked.
As we continue to follow government advice and wash our hands as often as possible, we want to make sure your hands are looked after, therefore we have put together this guide to the best hand cream for men. Whether you have dry, cracked or irritated skin, our bespoke guide will provide you with the product suited to you.
What are the best hand creams for dry skin?
The renew hand cream from the Neutrogena Norwegian Formula range is SPF 20 and so provides great sun protection for hands, but more importantly it hydrates the skin, whilst toning and firming thanks to collagen used in the formulation.
