Use a thick moisturizer or ointment at night and cover your hands with cotton gloves to improve absorption
New York, New York (PRWEB) December 05, 2012
The winter months mean dry, chapped and windburn hands. BeautyStat.com -- the leading online beauty community for skincare reviews and makeup reviews -- has complied a mega list of some of the skincare industry’s best hand creams on the market today -- ranging from personal editor favorites to dermatologist recommendations including antioxidant- and glycolic-rich formulas. Dermatologist Sejal K. Shah and Skyy Hadley (owner of the As “U” Wish Nail Spa) also provided easy, at-home tips to get moisturized, healthy looking and feeling hands without breaking the bank. Dr. Shah advises one to, “Use a thick moisturizer or ointment at night and cover your hands with cotton gloves to improve absorption, especially if they are very dry.”
Skyy Hadley suggests making a cheap and effective at-home hand treatment recipe that consists of oatmeal, milk and a heavy application of shea butter. Not up to making your own hand treatment? Hadley recommended Autopalm’s Moisturizing Hand Treatment. “With regular use, the hands will become softer, smoother, brighter, and more comfortable,” said Hadley.
BeautyStat’s very own editors weighed in on the best hand creams out there with suggestions including ones from brands such as Neutrogena, Nuxe, St. Ives and Burt’s Bees. Along with generous moisturizing applications, Dr. Shah also mentions that one should concentrate on exfoliating weekly, avoiding harsh and abrasive cleansing chemicals on the skin and applying SPF-containing hand cream during the day. “The hands can age faster than the face because the skin is so thin and there is very little fat on them,” said Dr. Shah.
