It is often said you can tell how old a woman is by looking at her hands. During winter, hands can betray us after suffering the effects of harsh cold and dry air. Here are some suggestions for creams to resolve your most common problems. Prepare to dominate the cold season with an iron fist ... but keep your velvet gloves!

Your priority: treating dry nails

Are your cuticles are dehydrated and constantly peeling? Are your nails split, brittle or ridged? It’s time to give them a boost of hydration!

Choose an oil specially designed to moisturize the cuticles: keep it on your bedside table and apply it every night at bedtime to restore the suppleness of the skin. For a more complete treatment, choose serums or creams designed to revitalize both hands and nails.

Our suggestions:

Cuticle Rehab Oil from Sally Hansen, a 2 in 1 treatment that treats the cuticles while giving the nails suppleness and shine.

Ideal Body Hand Cream from Vichy: in addition to strengthening the surface of the nails, it soothes the skin and regenerates the hands. It’s secret? It combines the nourishing action of 10 essential oils with the radiance from vitamin C and the fortifying effect of ceramides.

EOS Cucumber Hand Lotion contains aloe, oats and shea butter, with added vitamins and antioxidants for optimal moisture and softness. Although its effect lasts up to 24 hours, its almost entirely natural, non-greasy and paraben-free formula will make you want to use it more often!

Your priority: an intensive hydration cure for your hands

Low temperatures, repeated hand washing and dryness caused by heating produce a dangerous cocktail, which can leave hands extremely dry, chapped or cracked.

Choose a shock treatment! During the day, choose a rich, highly nourishing cream, in a compact format: you can leave the tube near your computer screen, and use it every time you wash your hands. In the evening, slather your hands with your favourite protective treatment and slip on a pair of protective gloves. The heat released by your body during the night will generate moisture, which the insulating effect of the gloves will turn into a moisturizing solution.

Our suggestions:

Spa Vital moisturizing gel gloves by Personnelle can be used for a twenty-minute treatment or for an all night treatment. Infused with a nourishing and soothing gel with macadamia, cherry and camellia oils, they are used alone or combined with a moisturizing product. Whatever their needs, your hands will be transformed!

Enydrial cream from RoC, as rich as it is light, specially formulated to combat extreme dehydration. The soothing action of allantoin combined with the nourishing properties of glycerin and shea butter leaves dry hands soft and supple. Its practical size allows you to take it everywhere you go! 

Atoderm cream from Bioderma has the same effect as a glove: it repairs even the most damaged hands deeply (and quickly!), while protecting them from external aggression. Its rich and creamy texture provides immediate and lasting relief.

Your priority: rejuvenate your hands

Over time, the skin of the hands thins and the subcutaneous fat disappears. By being exposed to aggression, the skin becomes dry and spots appear. An anti-aging formula can come to the rescue!

Choose firming and plumping treatments that even out the complexion and fight against age spots.

Our suggestions:

Clarins hand cream, rich in fortifying oils, wraps the hands in a protective sheath: in addition to minimizing the signs of aging, it fights the factors that favour their appearance.

Your priority: providing an exfoliating treatment

To regenerate the hands thoroughly and make the hydration even more effective, getting rid of dry skin and dead skin cells is essential: insufficient exfoliation can hinder the absorption of the cream.

Choose scrubbing formulas with coarse grains, powerful enough to dislodge impurities from the epidermis. Massage in to activate the blood circulation to the fingertips, then rinse with cold water. 

Our suggestions:

St. Ives apricot scrub deep cleans and gently removes impurities without affecting the skin’s balance.

Nivea’s exfoliating scrub, enriched with vitamin E, does more than just exfoliate. It refines the pores and gives an even complexion. Use often for healthy-looking skin!
