5 Hand Masks to Save You From Dry Skin This Season
Editors' Note: At Skincare.com, we believe that skin care is self care, and in light of the stress surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, self care is more important than ever. We hope you'll find comfort and inspiration in our content. We'd love to hear what you're doing in the name of self care, too, so tag us on Instagram @skincare. Sending everyone big virtual hugs!
If hand sanitizer has become your new BFF and singing 20 seconds of your favorite song while washing your hands has become your new norm, you’re doing it right. The only teeny, tiny downside? All those germ-killing formulas and constant washing can really take a toll on the skin on your hands. On top of everything, we’re just coming out of winter, so your skin was probably dehydrated and vulnerable to begin with.
Because a cream might not be enough to heal your cracked, tight and itchy skin right now, we’re rounding up the best hand masks. Not only are they nourishing, they are also a great way to pause and practice self-care during these uncertain times.
Find five of our favorite hydrating hand masks, ahead.
