  • Protect.

    Dry, chapped hands have it rough enough, so if you suffer from this regularly, show them some compassion when you’re doing the housework. Make sure you protect your hands with gloves whenever you’re encountering anything that could irritate your skin, especially when washing up or cleaning the bathroom

  • Look for glycerin.
    Look for glycerin.

    Glycerin is a humectant, which means it helps to retain water. Choosing a hand cream with glycerin will help lock moisture into your skin, keeping it hydrated and soft. You can find it in our Body Love Essential Care Hand Cream.

  • Moisturise.

    This almost goes without saying but moisturise often – keep a nourishing cream on your desk, by your bed, in your handbag and by the sink, so you remember to apply it throughout the day (plus, that way you always have one nearby when you need it)

  • Try an overnight treatment for dry hands.
    Try an overnight treatment for dry hands.

    Give your hands a generous coating of a rich cream, like Body Love Restoring Care Hand Cream, just before you go to sleep and pop on a pair of cotton gloves. They’ll spend all night soaking up its goodness and you’ll wake up with soft, smooth skin

  • Change with the seasons.
    Change with the seasons.

    In winter, change your hand cream like you would any other body moisturiser – the cold and wind means your skin needs extra nourishment, so swap your regular one for something richer.

  • Choose a caring hand wash.

    You don’t need harsh products to keep your hands clean – if you suffer from dry hands, make sure you’re looking after them by using a gentle hand wash that also has moisturising properties
