We rely on our hands for just about everything we do — every text, double tap, and crucially important right swipe — but we rarely give them the much-needed TLC they deserve. Plus, with all that exposure to the elements, it’s no wonder they’re the first place to show signs of weathering.
Luckily, though, there’s an abundance of skin-softening, nourishing, and ultra-hydrating hand creams on the market that, when used consistently, ward off signs of damage from daily wear and tear. And, the best part is there are excellent formulas available at every price point, no matter your budget. With the latest innovations landing on our desks at an ever-rapid rate, you could say we’ve tried our fair share of the lot, which means we’ve got a good idea of the lotions that work, as well as the ones that aren’t truly worth it.
Curious about the ones we can’t stop slathering on right now? Check out our current faves that fit into every budget, below.
