That being said my tried and true pick that you will always find in my purse or around my house is the Necessaire hand cream.

Nécessaire – The Hand Cream

This hand cream has niacinamide to moisturizer, marula oil to nourish, and peptides to protect the skin on your hands. It will defend against environmental stressors. It is also fast absorbing and leaves my hands feeling so silky smooth – it has quickly become my go to hand cream. I will share more details below.

The good news is with a few lifestyle changes and one of the best natural hand creams, you can say goodbye to dry, cracked skin. Check out all my other top picks below!

Why do our hands get so dry?

If you think about all that our hands get exposed in any single day, it’s not surprising they may need more care than the rest of our body. Here are a few factors into why you want to invest in organic hand creams:

  • Harsh Weather conditions. Cold weather and dry climates can wreak havoc on our skin – the winter months are an especially tough time of year!
  • Frequent Hand Washing (even worse if you are using a hand soap that is stripping your skin’s microbiome). This includes the overuse of hand sanitizers. Symptoms can be “quite mild to debilitating, including dryness, irritation, itching, and even cracking and bleeding.”
  • UV damage not only causes dry skin, but can show up as fine lines and wrinkles, pigment changes, and thinning of the skin. Unfortunately, we may not consider sunscreen for our hands in the same way we do our face and the rest of the body.

All this to be said, our hands are also going through the natural aging process. This includes loss of elastin and collagen as well as fat and thinning of the outer layer of skin.

And with a little extra care with one of my favorite hand creams, you will notice that your hands can remain hydrated and can age gracefully!

Hand washing can be so tough on the skin of our hands – so don’t over do it and use and gentle soap when you do!

Tips To Keep Your Hands Moisturized

Just a few lifestyle modifications along with swapping out a few personal care products will make such a difference in the delicate skin on your hands. Here are a few easy places to start:

  • Use a gentle hand soap that won’t strip your skin and avoid hot water. Also, don’t over-wash your hands. This is my favorite microbiome-friendly hand wash (use code GGG15 to save 15%).
  • After washing (or as needed throughout the day) use a good hand cream. It doesn’t take much time to do, but will make all the difference in the health of the skin on your hands.
  • Use a sunscreen as needed when in direct sunlight
  • Protect your hands from the cold with the use of gloves/mittens when in cold conditions.
  • Keep yourself hydrated. When our bodies become dehydrated, our skin shows it so ensure you are drinking enough water throughout the day.
  • Consider any type of product your hand consistently comes in contact with (such as dish soap or cleaning products). You may be surprised at what you find on the ingredient lists of your favorite products that could be contributing to your dry hands. A great way to avoid this is to utilize gloves when using these items or better yet, swap out your products for better options. Check out my favorite dish soap here that has no irritating ingredients!

Pro Tip: Anytime I do my morning or nighttime skincare routine, I make sure to use any excess face moisturizer or other product that I have on the backs of my hands. This an easy way to not waste the product, and provide some nourishment for your hands!
