Whatever your skin type, a change in elements can be tough on skin. If you are chief cleaner, washer and cook in your household, your hands will be getting immersed in water constantly and this constant change of moisture can also cause the skin to chap. But there are several simple steps you can take, including using hand lotion, to soothe sore, red or uneven skin.
Each of these replenishing lotions provide long-lasting relief from dry skin, working hard to heal as well as hydrate. If you have sensitive skin, look for natural formulas packed with high-quality, organic ingredients like nourishing shea butter, sweet almond oil and beeswax.
With beautifully delicate scents including jojoba, fig and grapefruit, and in a range of prices to suit all budgets you'll be able to find a transeasonal hand cream that you'll want to use again and again.
