Treat Dry, Cracked Skin With These Hand Saviors

Dry, winter air is no friend to our hands (neither is the hand sanitizer we now keep at arm’s length 24/7). From lotions and salves to gloves and masks, here are some of our favorite dry hand saviors.

Kitsch Moisturizing Spa Gloves ($22, shop here)

Treat your hands to a pampering session with these spa gloves designed to relieve and replenish dry, cracked skin. Squeeze your favorite lotion or cream directly into the gloves, and the insulated gel lining warms the skin and conditions, locking in moisture. The gloves are made of soft cotton, making them both comfortable and washable. The touch-screen fingertips let you multitask during use, so you won’t miss a thing on TikTok.

L’Occitane Shea Butter Intensive Hand Balm ($36, shop here)

L’Occitane’s best-selling shea butter hand cream has been a dry hand savior for decades. For extra hydration, select the highly concentrated “intensive” version. With 25% shea butter (5% more than the classic version), the balm is enriched with allantoin, which gives instant relief and softness while creating a protective barrier for skin as it melts into the hands and nails.

Lush Charity Pot Body Lotion ($7.95, shop here)

Lush’s Charity Pot is a hydrating cocoa butter-based cream with antioxidant-rich moringa oil, soothing aloe, and a delicate floral scent of ylang-ylang and rosewood oils. Another plus of this wonder is that each purchase makes a difference – not only for your skin! For every jar of Charity Pot sold, 100% of the purchase price is donated to small grassroots organizations that support human rights, environmental justice, and animal protection around the world.

Eucerin Advanced Repair Hand Cream ($5.69, shop here)

Eucerin is one of the best drugstore brands you can find with quality ingredients and a price that won’t break the bank. The Advanced Repair Hand Cream is lightweight, fast-absorbing, and non-greasy, keeping hands moisturized for up to six hours. It’s fragrance-free and enriched with buffered alpha hydroxy acids and ceramide 3 to promote cell turnover for fresher skin.

Seed Phytonutrients Hand Salve ($18, shop here)

This rich salve is great as a heavy-duty nighttime treatment for dry and cracked hands. Its magical formula has natural camelina seed oil, sunflower seed oil, shea butter, and jojoba seed oil. It applies thick but absorbs quickly without any greasy residue. It has a light cedar leaf and beach sage aroma that doesn’t overwhelm.

Lano Golden Dry Skin Miracle Salve ($25.95, shop here)

Lano’s popular 101 Ointments have been called the world’s best lip balms, but they actually can be used on hands, legs, arms, elbows, and any spots of dry skin. For super-intense hydration, the Golden Dry Skin Miracle Salve is the crème de la crème. It’s an ointment-based salve with over 70% lanolin, an ultra-rich dry skin treatment; vitamin E as an antioxidant; and Manuka honey and beeswax for wound care and healing.
