Who else is seeing flaky, ashy patches of skin on their hands, maybe especially between your fingers?
People, it’s a pandemic, and many of us are doing the right things, such as staying home, wearing a mask when in public, and washing our hands frequently and/or using hand sanitizer. As such, dry hands are inevitable, and ordinary hand lotion just isn’t cutting it!
But don’t freak out and give up yet. As a long-time desert dweller, I have always been on the up-and-up when it comes to the best products for dry hands. Give these recommendations a try and say bye-bye to snake-like hands.
Farmacy Honey Savior
Sounds fancy, doesn’t it? It is! At $34 a bottle, you’re probably thinking, “This had better work.” Trust me, it does. Not only will a dab of this yummy-smelling and good-feeling salve immediately soothe your ashy patches, Farmacy Honey Savior is also your go-to cure for paper cuts, kitchen knife nicks, and unfortunate razor burn. My household self care kit isn’t complete without it, making it a must-have product for dry hands
First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream
The thing about First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream is that not only is it a great product for dry hands, it’s perfect for any area where you suffer from dry skin. I’ve used it on my feet, elbows, and knees, too. It’s fast-absorbing, silky-feeling, without being greasy. The makers claim you can even use it on eczema. That’s how effective this cream is. It just feels really good; you’ll want to keep it in stock all year long.
Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream
While this product for dry hands touts itself as a cream, it really has the same consistency as a salve or ointment. It has a refreshing lemon scent, but the featured benefit is the product’s ability to nourish dry cuticles and strengthen nails. If you are indeed being diligent about your hand washing, I’m sure you’ve also noticed that your nails are more brittle than usual. Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream will help with that. I recommend applying it to your cuticles daily.
Best Everyday Lotions for Dry Hands
In addition to the three products for dry hands mentioned above, I suggest you consider switching out your everyday lotion for one of these. I find them to be especially nourishing, soothing, and luxurious. They’re not cheap, but the impact they make on dry hands make them worth their price tags.
Avalon Organics Nourishing Lavender Hand & Body Lotion
The fragrance alone will leaving you feeling less stressed about quarantine life, but the product’s formulation will restore your dry hands in no time. Pick up Avalon Organics Nourishing Lavender Hand & Body Lotion at Walgreen’s.
Baronessa Cali’s Tarocco Hand Lotion
This is yet another product for dry hands that smells so wonderfully intoxicating. However, what makes Baronessa Cali’s Tarocco Hand Lotion so amazing is its ability to absorb quickly and hydrate deeply. I keep bottles of it around my abode in different rooms so I always have it handy. You can find it at Amazon.
