It’s been a wickedly long Winter and an extremely slow starting Spring leaving us all with dry, ravaged hands. Looking down as I type and around the office, all that’s in my view are cuticles crying a desperate need for help.
I’ve linked some of the most soothing formulations with scents to make you swoon. My favorites scents are with florals to heighten and lift your mood. Luxurious formulas and textures that are all about curing your cuticle woes with the silkiest shea butter mixed sweet roses just in time for Spring.
Be sure to look for a nourishing hand cream that contains Aloe vera, shea butter or olive oil are great choices to keep your skin hydrated, soft and smooth. Tip: Definitely opt for creams instead of lotions, as they are a bit thicker and richer in texture and tend to be much more hydrating than a lotion.
Deeply moisturizing, softening and comforting, a good hand cream will envelop your hands in a protective, non-oily powdery veil, to repair, moisturize and leave the skin supple and beautiful.
Indulge in a daily hand care ritual; pop one in your purse or a carry-on when you’re traveling so you’re always moisturizing on the go. Apply as often as necessary, taking care to massage the fingertips and well into the cuticles to promote nail growth.
Diptyque Eau Rose Hand Cream ranks highly on my list, as not only does it get the job done, but looks chic as hell while doing it. This velvety lotion is formulated especially to protect your hands while scenting them with the delicate notes of Eau Rose. It contains aloe vera and macadamia oil, both of which protect and repair, and can also be used to nourish the cuticles and nails.
