10 Super Moisturizing Hand Lotions to Help Show Off Your Ring
Banish dry skin with these soothing products.
This product has been a darling on several of our round-ups for dry skin because it is such a powerhouse and (shocker!) reasonably priced. Eucerin makes several different moisturizing lines, but for brides that battle very dry skin, they will love this ointment.
Aveeno Skin Relief Hand Cream
If you’ve got sensitive skin that is averse to fragrances, Aveeno has a ton of moisturizers for you. This one is specifically for hands, and is a bit richer than some of their body creams.
This ultra-thick lotion is available in a couple of sizes (the tiny travel size saves our hands in the winter when we are on the go) and has a clean, fresh scent. It’s also bargain-priced and you can find it at most drugstores.
Aveda Hand Relief
If you love Aveda’s signature “shampure” fragrance (a blend of herbs and botanicals), then you have got to try out this hand cream. In fact, this aroma definitely will help you relax, so add it to your bedtime ritual. Throw on some of this lotion and then seal everything in by going to bed with a pair of thin cotton gloves.
L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream
This product is one of the L’Occitane’s best-sellers, and for good reason. Although you would think that this quenching, rich cream is greasy, it actually absorbs into your skin quickly. Made with a combination of shea butter, coconut oil, and honey, this is another moisturizer that is easy to stow in your purse.
La Mer ‘The Hand Treatment’
If you are in the mood for a luxury purchase, you really can’t get more decadent than La Mer’s ‘The Hand Treatment.’ Included in the hefty price tag are added ingredients that will help to reduce the appearance of sun damage on your hands.
H2O Plus Sea Salt Set
Having baby soft hands generally involves more than just a great lotion. Use a body wash that is also designed to moisturize and then follow up with lotion right when you towel dry after your shower.
Deborah Lippman Cuticle Cream
You’ve got the killer manicure and the diamond stunner. Keep everything on-point for your Instagram announcement with this supple cuticle cream by Deborah Lippman. A little bit goes a long way, so this will last you well into your engagement.
Lush ‘Golden Handshake’ Hand Mask
For an extra hand treatment, try the Golden Handshake from Lush. We advise that despite needing hot water to activate the mask, that you wait a few minutes before dipping your hands in. Excessively hot water can actually exascerbate dry skin, particularly if you are going out in the cold air again soon after.
Josie Maran Argan Oil
You know how to layer your accessories, but did you know how great layering your moisturizer can be? Use a rich oil (like argan oil, shown here) on your hands, let it soak in for a few minutes, and then put your favorite hand cream on top.
