The other day you felt this sharp pain on your hands. Papercut? Not exactly. Your skin is so dry in winter that you almost cut yourself by clapping. This isn’t unusual. With the dry heat in your office, cold winds, and hot showers, your hands take a serious beating in the winter. At the behest of our manicurists, we road-tested some hand creams for your desks, sinks, and bedside tables and here are the ones that came out on top. 

H20 Plus Hand and Nail Cream ($17) is a lightweight cream that you can apply after washing your hands. This is a year-round option that soothes and nourishes dry hands and cuticles.


Bath and Body Works Look Ma New Hands (on sale for $6) is perfect for people who have to deal with the elements and drastic changes in temperature. Containing paraffin to help seal in the lotion's moisture, this is a great work tote or handbag staple to protect your hands before you put them back into your gloves.


Last but not least, Neutrogena Norweigan Formula Hand Cream ($4) is a tried-and-true solution. This is the big time, heavy-duty hand cream for indoor/outdoor care.

And check out our Lip Balm Guide for heavy-duty winter balms that will keep your lips smooth all season.
