How many people think rough, dry hands are just part of the program when life gets hectic? They might try every new hand cream for dry skin that comes along, and find none work very well.
Millions of women have a full-time job, raise a family and do most of the cleaning and dish-washing, and they often have this experience. For men, it’s often the same kind of busy life, and a man’s tendency to neglect his skin anyway, that leads to skin dryness, especially on the hands.
In my own busy life, I once did all that, including the constant search for a hand cream for dry skin that really worked. For all those busy people, here’s a quick guide for what to look for in the best hand cream for dry skin.
First, look for the proven natural emollients (skin softeners) and moisturizers, such as…
— Shea butter, a natural emollient and moisturizer that absorbs into the skin quickly and easily, without greasiness. Clinical studies have shown that shea butter is an anti-inflammatory for red, irritated skin, and makes the skin softer, smoother, and younger looking within four to six weeks.
— Babassu, a light, natural wax from an Amazonian palm, has been used for centuries to soothe the skin. Babassu soothes both dry and oily complexions and in clinical trials has improved itchy, dry and inflamed skin, even eczema.
— Avocado Oil is deeply hydrating, scientifically-proven to stimulate collagen production and increase the proportion of soluble collagen in the dermis of your skin, all wonderful ways to make your skin feel younger.
— Active Manuka Honey, a remarkable honey from the flowers of manuka bushes growing wild in New Zealand, is exceptionally rich in antioxidants and stimulates the immune system.
— Natural Vitamin E, one of the great proven natural skin nutrients that prevents oxidation damage that causes so much skin damage and irritation.
Second, the produce should be up-to-date with modern skin care technology. One recent research breakthrough that complements these natural moisturizers in a hand cream for dry skin is a trademarked ingredient called Cynergy TK, which contains Functional Keratin (keratin in a unique bio-available form which stimulates the growth of new skin cells). It’s a wonderful moisturizer and also forms an invisible barrier to retain moisture.
That’s what I put on my own hands, and what a difference it has made! No redness, no dryness, no itching! Check my website for the best hand cream for dry skin.
