Four of the Best: Nourishing hand creams
Cracked, dry, brittle and sore? As it's our hands that seem to suffer the most this time of year we at Independent Woman have been in search of the most nourishing winter hand creams. We've been rubbing our hands with glee at the prospect of smooth skin for the winter months.
Here's four of the best:
Jergens Ultra Hydrating Hand Cream
Thirsty hands on a budget will be more than satisfied with US favourite Jergens. Their Ultra Hydrating Hand Cream doesn't scrimp on the good stuff and is rich in key natural ingredients like jojoba, avocado and olive oil. Quick to soak in and leaving little behind except soft skin this budget moisturiser with a blend of desert botanicals is fast becoming everyones favourite cult budget beauty buy.

Organic Neroli and Orange Hand and Body Cream
Dry hands looking for a home grown cure may be interested in the Organic Neroli and Orange Hand and Body Cream. Brewed on our own fair isles in the Burren in County Clare, the formula works a charm for bringing worn hands back to health. Lightly fragranced with juicy orange and packed with nourishing goodies like rosehip and avacado oil, two blobs in the palm is more then enough to soothe winter hands from the wrist to the cuticle .

Hands that have seen many summers tend to need more moisture than can be found in your average cream and Dermalogica's Multivitamin hand and nail treatment will be more than welcome at this time of year. The grease free cream is packed with anti-ageing staples like vitamin C to reduce the appearance of age spots, almond oil to heal and avobenzone to shield the skin from ultraviolet radiation. If all that weren't enough, a touch of grape seed has been added to neutralise free radicals and guard against future damage.
Available from selected salons priced at €25.40
La Roche-Posay's Lipikar Hands
Distressed hands in need of protection need look no further then La Roche-Posay's Lipikar Hands. Recently launched, the lipid-rich formula protects and repairs leaving even tinder dry hands silky soft and scrumptiously supple. As it comes in a handbag friendly 50ml tube dry mitts can be pampered on the go and as it's waterproof a bit wind and rain wont leave you vulnerable.
