Following hand washing (obviously I have something to say about that), you need to moisturise your hands often. For us, we choose to do it every evening after dinner when we are watching TV – some do it before bed, whenever you choose to apply hand cream, it is totally up to you.
We have been looking for hand creams that do a bit more than just hydrating – anti ageing properties have been valued by us. It is difficult to compare which hand cream is better than the other, so here is a selection of creams we have bought and used recently (and bought more than once).
Susanne Kaufmann Hand Cream, 50ml
From £28 from Alkaya (with free global shipping), Net-a-Porter, Space NK, Liberty London
Elemis Pro-radiance Hand and Nail Cream, 100ml

Costs £10 from Amazon (Europe), Beauty Expert (Global) Look Fantastic (North America)
If you can’t find it, Weleda’s Skin Food Light is a very good all rounder (face, body and hands) – find it on Amazon Europe, Amazon USA
