12 Hand Creams That Will Save Your Dry, Cracked Skin This Winter

Winter is coming. Actually, for many of us it’s already here. So now’s the time to prepare. There’s nothing like a dollop of rich hand cream to soothe our dry skin during the cold weather months. But the best hand creams do way more than offer relief — they are actually vital anti-aging products. Why? Well, as it turns out, our hands age just as quickly as our faces. It’s all thanks to all the heavy use and exposure they endure throughout our lives.

Luckily, a high-quality hand cream can help turn back the clock. But what separates the best hand creams from all the rest? Look for ones that are nongreasy, long-lasting and multipurpose (your cuticles will thank you). Moisture is what you’re after so make sure your pick includes hydration heroes. Think shea butter.

If you’re the sensitive kind, avoid formulas with fragrance. On the other hand, a great-smelling hand cream can almost double as perfume. You just may be sniffing your hands all day long. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.
