FOR DRY AND ITCHY HANDS

The best hand cream for you will contain restorative properties to help repair cracked hands causing them to itch. Try our NIVEA 3 in 1 Repair Hand Cream which is enriched with Vitamin C. It is intensely hydrating as it is a humectant which retains hydration and reduces water loss through the skin as it retains and attracts water to lock in moisture in the skin, and contains healing properties which offer relief from itchiness. Pro-Vitamin B5 helps to repair your skin, enabling it to heal faster while protecting it against further damage.

FOR GENERAL PROTECTION

The best hand cream for you will be one that protects and deeply hydrates your skin that you can use regularly. Anti-ageing properties are very beneficial because hands often show the first signs of ageing. Try the NIVEA 3-in-1 Q10 Anti-Age Hand Cream, it's great for combating the signs of ageing like wrinkling and age spots in your hands as it invigorates skin cells and collagen reserves in the skin. We recommend using it regularly for long-lasting and noticeable effects.

These two hand creams are perfect if you're on-the-go or travelling abroad so you can keep your hands topped up with hydration once you've found the best hand cream for you.

6 TIPS TO FIND THE BEST HAND CREAM FOR YOUR SKIN

These are the six best hand creams for the six most common skin needs:

1. CHAPPED OR CRACKED HANDS

If you work outdoors, have a manual job, or simply don’t react well to cold weather, you may be susceptible to chapped hands.

The best hand cream: Hands in this condition require an intensive repair cream created specifically for damaged skin. Try NIVEA’s Repair Care Hand Cream.

2. VERY DRY OR SLIGHTLY CHAPPED SKIN

Cold winter weather often causes skin to become very dry.

The best hand cream: Use a cream specifically formulated for dry skin. We love NIVEA’s Repair Care Hand Cream for the cold winter months.

3. FLAKY SKIN

Flaky hands are typically quite dry, but often require a little more hydration. This condition can flare up in colder weather, though some people have naturally flaky skin.

The best hand cream: Repair Care Hand Cream is perfect for keeping flaky skin well moisturised.

4. INFLAMMATORY SKIN CONDITIONS

If you suffer from eczema or any other inflammatory skin condition it can be a little tougher choosing a hand cream.

The best hand cream: Always ask your dermatologist or GP before trying anything new, as it may cause a bad reaction.

5. WRINKLE PREVENTION AND REDUCTION

Are you concerned about your hands becoming wrinkled before their time? Anti-aging hand creams are extremely popular and can help maintain firm skin and even reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

The best hand cream: NIVEA’s Q10 Anti Age Hand Cream contains coenzyme Q10. And your skin needs all the Q10 it can get as it ages.

6. SENSITIVE SKIN

A hand cream that is made with mostly natural ingredients is best for sensitive skin.

Always read the label. Follow the directions for use.
