To prevent the spread of COVID-19, I’ve been washing my hands relentlessly and applying alcohol-based hand sanitizer several times a day.
Excessively cleaning my hands could result in dry, cracked skin, but I’ve been able to prevent them from becoming chapped and ashy with my arsenal of moisturizing hand creams and balms.
Unlike run-of-the-mill moisturizers, each formula packs nourishing ingredients that deliver hours of hydration without leaving my palms thirsty for more. And they also leave my skin feeling silky and smooth.
And in case you’re looking for products to soothe dry hands, here’s a list of my tried-and-tested go-to’s.

You'll want to apply this hydrating balm to every inch of your body, and not just because of the irresistible mango scent. It's formulated with emollients that melt into the skin and lock in moisture for hours on end.
If your moisturizer only hydrates your skin, then it's time to upgrade to this fast-absorbing universal salve that repairs chapped lips, cracked heels, weak nails and more, without leaving a heavy greasy feel.
