Gloves Off! 4 Hand Creams You Need Before Spring
Are your hands looking a little worse for wear after this winter? Give them some love! We’re sharing the four hand creams you need to try before spring below.
As we get closer and closer to spring temps it’s time to start thinking about the state our skin is in now that winter is coming to a close. Dryness, dehydration, and an overall dullness are common complaints after the chilly season, perhaps especially when we’re talking about the skin on our hands. Despite being one of the first places to show the signs of age, our hands are often forgotten during our skin care routine—especially in the winter! But, before the gloves come off for spring, get your mitts in tip-top shape by incorporating one of the hand creams below into your routine!
Lancôme Absolue Hand
Looking for a luxe hand cream? Lancôme Absolue Hand may be just what you’re after. The hand cream is specifically formulated to address the signs of aging skin on the hands and has broad-spectrum SPF 15 to help protect the delicate skin on your hands from the skin-aging effects of the sun’s UV rays. The cream has a gorgeous refreshing scent, so you’ll want to apply it over and over throughout the day.

The Body Shop Almond Milk & Honey Hand Cream
You know a product is a hit when all the editors in the office fight over who gets to take the samples home. Case in point? The Body Shop’s new Almond Milk & Honey Hand Cream. Formulated for sensitive, dry hands, this hand cream is enriched with almond milk from Spain and Community Trade honey from Ethiopia. Exotic ingredients aside, the cream smells unbelievably divine and truly helps to soften and soothe dry hands.
Kiehl’s Ultimate Strength Hand Salve
If your hands are really dry after this winter this is the hand cream (or salve, really) for you! Formulated for the driest, most active hands, this heavy-duty moisture treatment is thick and rich and offers hands all-day care. The formula—with avocado, eucalyptus, and sesame seed oils as well as a wax derived from olive oil—helps skin to draw and absorb water from the air in order to form a “glove-like” protective barrier against moisture loss.
