Glossier Hand Cream

Have I really just dedicated an entire beauty column to hand cream you ask? Why yes, yes I have. With all that extra hand washing, and alcohol-based hand sanitiser in the mix (I am looking at you Omicron) raise your hands for the best restorative moisture-rich creams for your damaged, dehydrated digits.

Glossier Hand Cream, €18
SUPER-CHARGED moisture in a palm-sized pod with sleek curves and 360-degree squeeze? Sign me up.
Cute packaging aside, this is a fast-absorbing, nutrient-rich moisturiser (thanks, meadowfoam seed oil and coconut fruit extract)that nourishes without that greasy feel. I especially love the click-to-close cap because it means there’s zero spills in the bottom of your favourite handbag.

L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream, €18
SHEA butter can often get a bad rap for being too thick and greasy, so I was a little wary when I saw this tub was 20pc made up of the aforementioned salve.
Of course, I should have known that the French brand never takes a misstep when it comes to skincare, so I was
delighted to slather my hands with this cult cream. The good news is that it’s fast absorbing with a refreshing zesty scent.
Packed with mimosa and jojoba, together with botanical alfalfa concentrate, it’s designed to brighten and firm the hardworking skin on your hands, making it perfect for more mature mitts.

Chanel Le Lift Hand Cream, €65
IT’S January and we are living through a global pandemic. Basically there’s not a lot going on, so why not pull out all the stops with your hand cream?
For luxury in a lotion, look no further than this designer pebble housing a velvety-soft moisturiser that leaves the skin looking smoother and firmer. Formulated just like an anti-ageing face cream, the replenishing product also brightens dark spots — that’s got to be deserving of a photo on your Instagram grid.

Image Vital C Hydrating Hand and Body Lotion, €51
YES, this is on the pricey side, but believe me, your digits will thank you for splurging on this luxe moisturising lotion.
Packed with four highly active forms of vitamin C, slather it on daily to quench thirsty hands (and other bits) and tackle the telltale signs of ageing.

Nuxe Reve De Miel Hand & Nail Cream, €9
THIS non-stick cream, infused with honey, precious oils and vitamin E, nourishes and repairs dry and damaged skin without giving you Spidey abilities — so unlike Peter Parker, you don’t stick to everything you come in contact with.
It will also protect your paws from premature aging while strengthening nails and softening cuticles dramatically. Put it this way — your nail technician will be seriously impressed the next time you sit in their chair.
