Take care of the skin on your hands with soothing hand cream.
Why is a hand cream so important?
Your hands have a lot to endure. To prevent dry hands or the skin of your hands from cracking, it is essential to care for your hands with hand cream regularly. A nourishing hand cream moisturizes the skin and prevents dry hands.
What is a good hand cream for my hands?
Which hand cream your hands need depends on your skin type and skin problem. The ingredients in hand creams ensure that your hands receive precisely the care they need. That is why there are unique hand creams for dry hands against chapping or eczema. Therefore, choose a hand cream based on your skin type and problem.
How do you use a hand cream?
Our advice is to apply the hand cream to clean hands. So wash your hands first with hand soap or hand disinfectant gel. Make sure you do not use too much cream. A pea-sized amount is often sufficient. Rub the cream on your hands: top and bottom, the skin between your fingers and wrists. Then let the cream soak in. Tip: Do you suffer from dehydrated hands? Then rub your hands in just before you go to sleep. You can apply a thicker layer of cream, which will be absorbed all night.
Regarding frequency, we advise applying hand cream at least once a day. If your hands feel dry or rough, you may need to use the hand cream more often.
What is the best hand cream?
A good hand cream contains active ingredients that nourish the skin. When selecting a hand cream, look for the following components:
- Moisturizing ingredients: helps retain moisture in the skin. You'll often see this as an ingredient like glycerin, urea, or honey.
- Vitamins: in addition to moisturizing, they replace scars and stimulate collagen production. The most common vitamins in hand creams are A, C, and E.
- Acids: prevent the loss of hydration of the skin and maintain the flexibility of the skin. You'll often see this as hyaluronic acid or lactic acid.
