Hands often get neglected when it comes to beauty routines. But as one of the parts of our bodies which gets the most exposure to the elements, and that we use the most, it’s important to remember to tend to them, especially during the colder winter months. From hand washing, to damage form cold temperatures and wind, our hands endure a lot throughout the day. Fortunately, there is help; L’Occitane’s Shea Butter Hand Cream has been voted one of the best hand creams time and time again; most recently listed in InStyle’s 2012 Best Beauty Buys. In fact, L’Occitane claims that a tube of their famous buttery goodness sells every 3 seconds around the world!
The creamy and lightly scented balm penetrates the skin quickly without leaving a greasy residue. Like most men, my husband has tough skin and he swears by it; instant moisture and it helps heal weather-damaged hands. The secret to the silky goodness is the 20% shea butter, and other naturally nourishing ingredients like honey, almond, grape seed, and coconut oil.
We recommend reapplying a few times a day during the colder months, especially if you are spending time outdoors or washing your hands more often than usual. A perfect cure for dry, winter weary hands!
