I am currently working in a job where I am frequently washing my hands and using hand sanitizer. My hands have NEVER been drier. Do any of you have recommendations for hand or cuticle creams? My regular go-to lotion isn’t cutting it.

Nail Tek Advanced Hydrating Creme is amazing. I have very sensitive skin and it used to crack and bleed in the winter even when I wore gloves. This creme hydrates without being greasy and actually reactivates when you wash your hands. I would still probably apply it every other time after washing your hands, but it has made a huge difference for me.

Pai hand lotion. It’s pricey, but it’s the best, and I’ve used a LOT. For extra cuticle love, I also like Essie apricot oil once in a while.

I love the Nivea hand creme in the blue tin/tube. If you want to spend a little, l’occitane lavender hand creme is amazing too.

I am currently using the Kiehl’s hand salve and I really like it! I have dry hands usually and wash them a ton. For cuticle cream I use one by a smaller independent nail polish brand called “Vapid.” The cream is called nail sauce and it’s great!

Hand cream – L’Occitane shea butter hand cream. Cuticle cream – Dior Creme Abricot. I’ve been using this combo every night for a few months and my nails are amazing, they haven’t broken in I can’t even remember how long. My hands get dry if I don’t use the hand cream a few times throughout the day, but as long as I remember to do so, they look and feel great. No complaints about the hand cream, but the cuticle cream is sticky and takes a long time to absorb and smells a little weird…it works like magic, though.

The “Delectable” line from Cake Beauty!!! Omg, I have the coconut & cream hand cream and it’s one of my most favorite things. Plus it’s a good price 🙂

I won’t share my hand lotion since I use ones that keep my eczema-prone skin in check and none of them smell very good (although they work wonders!). But for my cuticles, I rotate between CND Solar Oil and Dior Creme Abricot depending on my mood 🙂

For cuticles, I use an awesome cream — Elon Nail Conditioner. It’s lanolin based and is a great nail strengthener in addition to keeping cuticles soft. You can get it in a little jar or a tube. Check Amazon and Dermstore.com.

Use organic- extra virgin, unrefined coconut oil- Its so amazing, It will soften your skin and keep it hydrated better than any chemical laced drugstore cream! it is anti-fungal and the molecules are small enough to penetrate nails and skin (hair as well).
I use it on my entire body as a moisturizer, I shave my legs/ armpits with it, use it as a eye cream before bed, eye make-up remover, deep conditioner for my hair, lip balm and there are a bazillion other amazing uses for this stuff, I really recommend checking it out. You can purchase at walmart or most grocery stores, I use the brand Tropical Life and it is very good quality.
It starts as a solid and melts at 76 degrees F. so you could easily take it with you in some sort of travel container, even mix in a little lavender essential oil for the skin soothing & aromatheropy benefits. Coconut oil is natural and smells YUMMY, give it a try you will love it.
