Our Favorite Hand Lotions for Dry Skin

You use your hands for everything, so if they’re dry, cracked, or chafed, then you’re in for a world of hurt. It’s important to keep hands soft, but that task is also difficult. Consider how many times you wash them in a day: Chances are you’re washing them more than ever right now, and that means you’re dealing with dry skin and in need of some hand lotion.

A good lotion not only resuscitates dry, cracked hands quickly, but its continued use will also prevent further dehydration in the future. It will keep your hands soft but strong—when it comes to hand care, those two words are used in tandem. This ensures maximum mobility, strength, dexterity, as well as minimum risk to the elements, infection, calluses, and more.

Here are some of our favorite hand creams that will do the trick in softening hard, cracked, or dry mitts, and keep them strong well into the future.

L:A Bruket Hand Cream
The combination of patchouli and bergamot oils in L:A Bruket’s hand cream help neutralize and balance the skin, leaving it healthy, more clean (as in, they both act as natural antiseptics), and free of irritation. Together they also get rid of dead skin, soothe on contact, and promote faster healing. Lastly, the inclusion of meadowfoam in this formula helps deliver Omegas 6 and 9 to the skin, which keeps it plump, firm, and hydrated.

[$ 24; amazon.com]

Get it

Aesop Hand Balm
With a blend of oils and extracts including cedarwood, coconut, lavender, grapefruit, and carrot root, Aesop’s hand balm is a nourishing, protective, and addictive option. It’s probably true that, in a lineup of lotions, most people would grab this one due to their affinity for the brand and this, one of their fan-favorite products. Its healing and shielding powers are a strong-enough sell, but that soothing lavender-and-leaves aroma really seals the deal.

[$ 30; spacenk.com]

Burt’s Bees Hand Salve
If you work with your hands—in the garden, under the hood, etc.—then you need a good salve to soften and soothe your tired hands and skin. This can prevent the buildup of thick calluses, premature skin aging, uneven texture, and the likes. Burt’s Bees’ salve is packed with beeswax and olive oil, and is a prime candidate for the gig. It’s especially easy to tote along in your back pocket, work bag, or glove compartment.

[$ 7; amazon.com]

Get it

Marlowe Body Lotion
A full-body lotion that is equally excellent when targeted at the hands. Willow bark extract minimizes inflammation on the skin, while passion flower fruit and green tea extracts help revive, heal, and strengthen damaged cells. And there’s more: Aloe soothes and smoothes, a blend of amino acids preserves moisture levels, and a citrusy-musky-peppery scent lingers lightly on the skin, after the lotion has been quickly absorbed.

[$ 13; amazon.com]

Get it

Kiehl’s Hand Salve
This is a savior for overwashed, overstressed, overexposed, cracked, dry hands. It provides instant cooling relief thanks to the inclusion of eucalyptus oil, and day-long moisture from olive oil-derived wax. Use it for an overnight miracle, or as a defense against colder weather.

[$ 23; shop.nordstrom.com]

Get it

Moroccanoil Hand Cream
There’s a lot packed into each Moroccanoil hand cream tube: Shea and cocoa butter plump the skin and lock in moisture, while also neutralizing any inflammation in the skin. Argan oil, the brand’s signature ingredient, also hydrates while helping improve skin texture and tone. Avocado oil delivers antioxidants to help protect skin from pollutants, and lastly, mango butter soothes, brightens, and firms skin.

[$ 24; sephora.com]

Get it

Amlactin Exfoliating Lotion
With the added oomph of gentle alpha hydroxy acid (which is naturally occurring in your own body), this daily lotion dissolves dead rough patches of dead skin, like calluses and cracks. In turn, it heals the skin and keeps hands soft, since lactic acid is also a humectant and helps immensely to boost and preserve moisture levels in the skin barrier. Use this for shortcuts to smooth mitts, as well as to prevent future buildup from occurring.

Our Favorite Hand Soaps That Won’t Dry Out Your Skin

While washing your hands is a necessary precaution for preventing illness and spreading germs, it can also take a toll on the hands themselves. The quality of hand soaps you use will often determine how dry your hands become, or how soft and hydrated they remain. That’s why, in times of frequent washing, hand soaps are one thing that are worth the extra investment.

By prioritizing hand soaps with nourishing ingredients (such as natural oils, butters, and plant extracts), you can help preserve the skin’s moisture barrier and reduce the damage that cheaper, more streamlined formulas can sometimes wreak—or you can eliminate that damage altogether. You can also lessen the amount of hand lotion needed to counter these drying, cracking side effects. (Just think of high-quality soaps as a combination of soap and lotion, since they combine the ingredients and functions of both.)


12 Vitamin C-boosted Products That’ll Rescue Your Dry, Dull Winter Skin

Sachajuan Liquid Soap

Sweden-based Sachajuan is first and foremost a hair care company, known for its proprietary “Ocean Silk Technology”, a recipe infused into its products to ensure strong, healthy, hydrated strands (and a healthy scalp, too). The brand has extended its secret formula into a handful of skincare products, too. And speaking of handful: If you have one of this liquid soap, your skin is left soft, silky, and hydrated.

[$ 26; allbeauty.com]


The Body Shop Tea Tree Liquid Soap

The Body Shop’s entire tea-tree oil line is worth endless accolades, thanks to the ingredient’s ability to neutralize inflammation, irritation, and even breakouts on the skin. (Tea tree oil is often called “nature’s antiseptic” because it’s used to nix fungal and bacterial infections, or disinfect cuts and counter bug bites.) This hand wash keeps skin void of germs and any other maladies, while also preserving moisture levels.

[$ 15; thebodyshop.com]


La Savonnerie Lavender Liquid Soap

The Provence region of France is known for its soap milling, as well as its rolling hills of lavender. And La Savonnerie, one of Marseille’s most famous soapmakers, also produces an excellent hand wash. With products that include less than 10 ingredients each, this one centers on nourishing oils like coconut, olive, and argan, all of which are top notch when it comes to removing grime, cleansing skin, and keeping it hydrated. Plus, the lavender scent in this one sends you right to the heart of Provence, with its purple perfumed plains.

[$ 20; lasavonnerieonline.com]


Dove Liquid Soap

Just like its bar soaps, Dove liquid soap first prioritizes the skin’s delicate balance, in that its formula is super hydrating. By far the least expensive soap on this list, it’s also one that is far-and-above a favorite of dermatologists. Between this and the brand’s bar soap and body washes, you could build an entire low-cost, highly hydrating skincare regimen.

[$ 3; target.com]


Nécessaire Body Wash

Here’s a not-so-secret secret: Body wash is also an effective liquid hand soap, and is often doubly hydrating than the stuff on your sink ledge. Think of it this way: If you’re using it on your entire body in the shower, then it’s also cleansing your hands in the process. So why not just use the body wash as a hand soap? We’d cast Nécessaire in the role, with its vitamin-packed body wash that builds a rich, soothing lather and leaves skin soft and, of course, ultra clean.

[$ 25; necessaire.com]


Grown Alchemist Liquid Soap

With oils of rosemary leaf, coconut, sweet almond, cedarwood, and more, Grown Alchemist’s hand soap is as nourishing as most lotions. It’s also packed with peptides to help firm skin, counter inflammation, and heal any wounds (like hangnails, as a common example).

[$ 29; anthropologie.com]


L’Occitane Shea Liquid Soap

L’Occitane channels all the right Provence techniques into its skin-soothing assortment, and this shea-powered hand soap is no exception. It plumps and firms the skin while it flushes away grime, and adds a host of moisturizing vegetable oils to help preserve moisture level. In its wake is the refreshing, spring-like scent of verbena flowers, which complements the freshness you feel.

Intercos and Campari Team to Manufacture Hand Sanitizers

CHEERS TO HELP: Leading cosmetics manufacturer Intercos Group and spirits-specialist Campari Group have joined forces to produce hydroalcoholic sanitizing gel to distribute to health-care workers operating in the Lombardy region, one of the most affected by the coronavirus epidemic.
In particular, Campari donated batches of pure alcohol — originally intended for its production lines — to the beauty supplier, which transformed and bottled them in its Cosmint facility located at Olgiate Comasco, one-hour drive from Milan. Thanks to the partnership, a first batch of 15,000 hand sanitizers will be distributed to hospitals in need.
“The Intercos Group is confronted with the COVID-19 emergency for months, first with its Chinese plants and now in Italy and in the U.S. and knows very well the importance of supporting the health professionals in the communities exposed by the epidemic,” said the company’s chief executive officer Renato Semerari.
Founded in 1972 by Dario Ferrari, Intercos counts 11 research centers, 15 production plants and 15 sales offices on three continents. At the moment, two facilities in Italy and two in New York are temporarily shut down, in accordance with the respective governments’ restrictions.
In addition to Olgiate Comasco, where the company is producing personal hygiene products, its Garwolin facility

LVMH to Distribute Free Hand Sanitizer to French Health Authorities

PARIS — LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton said Sunday it will manufacture and distribute hand sanitizer to French health authorities for free in order to fight the spread of coronavirus, or COVID-19.
“Given the risk of shortage of hydroalcoholic gel in France, Bernard Arnault has instructed the LVMH Perfumes and Cosmetics business to prepare its production sites to manufacture substantial quantities of hydroalcoholic gel to be provided to public authorities,” the company said.
Starting Monday, all the production facilities of the group’s perfumes and cosmetics brands, including Parfums Christian Dior, Guerlain and Parfums Givenchy, will produce and distribute bottles of hand sanitizer to be delivered free of charge in France, prioritizing Parisian hospitals.
Since the first cases of COVID-19 were detected in the country, French consumers have cleared out stocks of hand sanitizers in pharmacies and grocery stores. In Paris, most pharmacies have had to put up signs informing people that they are fully out of both protective masks and hand sanitizers, two of the main tools used to limit contamination.
French pharmacies are excluded from the government’s forced closure of “nonessential” public spaces to limit the propagation of the virus, which was announced on Saturday.

Moore From L.A.: At Paris Fashion Week, Air Kissing Is Out, Hand Sanitizer In

The LVMH Prize cocktail party is the latest cancellation at a Paris Fashion Week gripped with anxiety over coronavirus, where bottles of hand sanitizer, not perfume, were door gifts at the Paco Rabanne show held Thursday at the Conciergerie, the historic French Revolution-era site that’s certainly seen more head-spinning disasters.
The invisible menace hasn’t emptied the lunch crowd at L’Avenue, or cleared Caviar Kaspia (“We are fully booked every night with a huge waiting list,” reports chief executive officer Ramon Mac-Crohon.) And it didn’t keep Rachel Brosnahan, Demi Moore and Sigourney Weaver from the front row at Dior, Usher from Rick Owens or Carla Bruni and Tyga (what a pair) from coming to Off-White.
But it has created new rules of engagement, as the most social creatures on earth adjust to the “social distancing” being recommended by medical professionals to prevent the spread of the virus.
Air kissing is out, the arm squeeze is in, and every greeting (at fashion week, there are so, so many) is fraught with awkwardness as people gauge their coronavirus comfort level. “Wait, did you just come from Milan?” joked Anthony Vaccarello, kissing Vogue editor Mark Holgate on each cheek backstage after the Saint Laurent show. “No!” Holgate

(Approx. 200,000 words total.) Books included: 1. Death's Hand 2. The Darkest Gate 3. Dark Union DEATH'S HAND Elise Kavanagh doesn't want to hunt demons anymore. It's been five years since she killed her last enemy, and life has been quiet since then. She went to college. Got a job, and then lost it. Made a friend or two. Lived a normal life. Now her former partner, a powerful witch named James Faulkner, wants Elise to fight one more time. The daughter of a coven member has been possessed, and Elise is the only exorcist nearby. Becoming a hero again would mean risking discovery by old enemies. But digging into the case reveals that it might already be too late–bodies are disappearing, demons slither through the night, and the cogs of apocalypse are beginning to turn. Some enemies aren't willing to let the secrets of the past stay dead… THE DARKEST GATE When Elise Kavanagh retired from demon hunting, she swore it would be permanent. But an attack from a powerful necromancer forced her back into the business, and now she's trying to balance her normal boyfriend and normal job with everything supernatural. Mr. Black is a demon hunter gone rogue. He's enslaving angels and stealing ethereal artifacts in pursuit of forbidden immortality, and an old grudge drives him to make his final stand in Elise's territory. Destroying her life and killing her friends isn't the goal, but it's a definite perk. A demonic overlord offers to join against Mr. Black and protect Elise's loved ones. All she needs to do is ally with the demons she's sworn to kill, at the cost of her morals–and maybe her immortal soul. But once she crosses that line, there's no turning back. Nothing is sacred when Heaven and Hell collide on Earth… DARK UNION Every fifty years, the most powerful ethereal and infernal beings convene on Earth to resolve conflicts with mediation by kopides–humans born to police relations between Heaven and Hell. They're meeting in Elise Kavanagh's territory this year, and she used to be the greatest kopis in the world. But she's not invited. An old friend, Lucas McIntyre, asks her to attend the summit in his place. But when she arrives, she discovers that a human faction called The Union has taken charge of the summit, and they're not playing nice. Worse yet, someone has killed a prominent Union member… and now they're demanding blood.

‘House of Cards’ tries making the best of a bad hand

“House of Cards” and “Roseanne” don’t have much in common, but their new seasons both faced an unenviable situation — trying to forge ahead without the central character, whose departure was triggered by off-screen controversy. Dealt that bad hand, the “Cards” writers have responded with a truncated final season — one that elevates Robin Wright’s role her new Commander in Chief status, while still providing a window into the world of bare-knuckled political brawling.

Hand Of God: Nipsey Hussle Slaps Fire Flame Out Of Man In BET Awards Parking Lot

Nipsey Hussle BET Awards slap

Source: Instagram / @EleeshaLee

Y’all better stop playing with Nipsey Hussle. The Crenshaw rapper blessed some guy with the hand of God after a parking dispute at the BET Awards in Los Angeles. 

Reports TMZ:

Nipsey Hussle unleashed a vicious slap on a man’s face in the middle of an argument over where he could park his whip … and it’s all captured on video.

Check it out, the L.A. rapper’s in the street outside the venue for Sunday night’s ‘BET Awards’ when he gets into with another guy. We’re told the issue was whether or not Nipsey could move some cones and drive through a restricted area.

Tempers flare, and after the guy smacks a traffic cone out of the hand of Nipsey’s bodyguard … Hussle unloads a hard right slap.

A law officer immediately grabs Nipsey to keep the fight from escalating … and then he gets back in his car.

Did y’all hear the sound of that slap? Rumor is the slapee was a BET employee—but Nipsey still performed.

Nipsey wanted all the smoke bruh. See multiple angles below.

Also, needless to say the slap’s echos are reverberating through Twitter.

At Work: Attorney Douglas Hand Pushes the Boundaries of Tailored Clothing

Douglas Hand has one rule when it comes to his wardrobe: always dress better than your client. “If they engage me, I’m going to charge them a lot of money. It’s about respect for them. What we do requires a great amount of detail and meticulousness and I don’t think that’s communicated well in casual clothing.”              
So the bar is set pretty high when your clients include Rag & Bone, the Council of Fashion Designers of America and Phillip Lim. 
Hand, a fashion-industry attorney and cofounder of Hand Baldachin & Amburgey LLP, is always impeccably put together, mostly in a suit. In fact, his sartorial choices are so spot-on that the American Bar Association tapped him to write a book entitled, “The Laws of Style for the Professional Gentleman,” which will be published in November.
WWD: Tell me a little bit about your background.
Douglas Hand: I was born in Los Angeles and raised in Laguna Beach, Calif., but really fell in love with New York during my time at NYU law school and business school. I started at a big multinational law firm called Shearman & Sterling with more than 1,000 lawyers. I practiced in their New York office and for a year

Jason Pierre-Paul’s Mangled Right Hand Without A Bandage

New York Giants player Jason Pierre-Paul’s right hand probably looks even worse than you imagined. Originally reported that he lost a finger, from the looks recently released photos it’s clear that the defensive end lost all of his index index finger, some of his thumb and a good portion of his middle finger. 

Bruh…

Reports the New York Daily News:

Shocking images show a weary-looking JPP with his knuckle protruding from where his right index finger used to be and bandages on his thumb and middle finger.

He was spotted wearing a grey t-shirt that reads “What we do in life echoes in eternity” and features a football player holding the hand of a young child. The NFLPA partnered with the clothing company Muze in 2010 on the shirt, the proceeds of which help fund research and awareness of brain injuries.

Whether you’re an NFL player or any everyday civilian, leave fireworks to the professionals. Peep more photos of JPP’s hand right here.

The Vanity Accessory You Never Knew You Needed: Byredo’s Brilliant Hand Cream Crank

Photographed by Elizabeth Brockway

The embrace of luxury is never better than when paired with a certain make-your-life-easier ingenuity. So when we spotted this impossibly chic marble and chrome contraption while browsing Byredo’s recently opened Wooster Street boutique in New York City, we simply had to have it. Dear friends, if you have ever ruminated over the nail polish brush that just misses the bottom of the bottle or the last vestiges of a beloved lipstick clinging to its concave bullet, take note: Because you can now sleep better knowing that at least no trace of your favorite face or hand cream need ever go unused again. Designed by founder Ben Gorham exclusively for the SoHo space, the machine allows you to crank an almost-empty tube of product around its metal rod, and, with a twist of the wrist, free the last gasps of salve from its aluminum container without any need for MacGyver-esque techniques (read: splitting the tube open and scraping the final remnants out with the same intensity one might devote to a Death Becomes Her immortality elixir). For the record, we fully intend to put our Marvis toothpaste to a similar off-label test. And defying all odds, it also happens to look great on a well-conceived vanity—making it the perfect marriage of modern opulence and classic practicality.

When Mommy Message Board Abbreviations Get Out Of Hand

Parenting message boards can be a great resource, but they can also be a breeding ground for the overuse of abbreviations (aka… abbrevs).

The funny ladies of The BreakWomb show just how alienating this kind of talk can be in their latest video.

The conversation may be filled with “IMHO,” “BF and FF,” NMSAA,” “IDK” and “FIL,” but reminds us that not everyone speaks “Mommy Message Board.”

The Descent Series, Books 1-3: Death’s Hand, The Darkest Gate, and Dark Union (The Descent Series, #1)

SM Reine

Genre: Contemporary

Publish Date: March 1, 2014

Publisher: Red Iris Books

Seller: Draft2Digital, LLC


This is a collection of the first three titles in The Descent Series, which are gritty urban fantasy books about an exorcist, a witch, and their battles against the forces of Heaven and Hell. (Approx. 200,000 words total.) Books included: 1. Death's Hand 2. The Darkest Gate 3. Dark Union DEATH'S HAND Elise Kavanagh doesn't want to hunt demons anymore. It's been five years since she killed her last enemy, and life has been quiet since then. She went to college. Got a job, and then lost it. Made a friend or two. Lived a normal life. Now her former partner, a powerful witch named James Faulkner, wants Elise to fight one more time. The daughter of a coven member has been possessed, and Elise is the only exorcist nearby. Becoming a hero again would mean risking discovery by old enemies. But digging into the case reveals that it might already be too late–bodies are disappearing, demons slither through the night, and the cogs of apocalypse are beginning to turn. Some enemies aren't willing to let the secrets of the past stay dead… THE DARKEST GATE When Elise Kavanagh retired from demon hunting, she swore it would be permanent. But an attack from a powerful necromancer forced her back into the business, and now she's trying to balance her normal boyfriend and normal job with everything supernatural. Mr. Black is a demon hunter gone rogue. He's enslaving angels and stealing ethereal artifacts in pursuit of forbidden immortality, and an old grudge drives him to make his final stand in Elise's territory. Destroying her life and killing her friends isn't the goal, but it's a definite perk. A demonic overlord offers to join against Mr. Black and protect Elise's loved ones. All she needs to do is ally with the demons she's sworn to kill, at the cost of her morals–and maybe her immortal soul. But once she crosses that line, there's no turning back. Nothing is sacred when Heaven and Hell collide on Earth… DARK UNION Every fifty years, the most powerful ethereal and infernal beings convene on Earth to resolve conflicts with mediation by kopides–humans born to police relations between Heaven and Hell. They're meeting in Elise Kavanagh's territory this year, and she used to be the greatest kopis in the world. But she's not invited. An old friend, Lucas McIntyre, asks her to attend the summit in his place. But when she arrives, she discovers that a human faction called The Union has taken charge of the summit, and they're not playing nice. Worse yet, someone has killed a prominent Union member… and now they're demanding blood.
