Diligent hand washing and using hand sanitiser has really dried out our hands over this last year. I’ve had questions asking which hand creams I recommend. So, here is my Alex Edit on my top 5 hand treatments to soothe and repair dry hands. And if dry skin is a concern for you beyond hands, see my edit of hydration heroes to nourish and replenish in your skincare routine.

1. Clarins Hand & Nail Treatment* – A classic that I always have to hand. It smells really good and helps to strengthen nails too.
2 + 3. My most indulgent 2-step hand care routine. This is an overnight treatment that starts with the La Mer Hand Serum* followed by a layer of Sisley’s Restorative Hand Cream*. Incredibly nourishing and a relaxing treat.
4. Another hand cream staple that works so well to relieve super dry hands is the Eucerin UreaRepair+ 5%*. It contains ceramides and moisturising factors to really lock in that hydration and soften hands for longer.
5. Weleda Sea Buckthorn Hand Cream* – A new hand cream to my collection that I’ve been enjoying. It has a fresh scent and is packed with rich oils (sesame and sea buckthorn) to condition and nourish hands – great for every day use.
