16 of the best hand creams to soothe dry, cracked skin

These are our must-have products to leave hands and nails feeling smooth, soft and hydrated – from budget buys and luxurious splurges, to sustainable options

Winter weather can wreak havoc with our skin, hair and hands, leaving cracked, dryness in its wake, especially when combined with spending lots of time in central heated homes. It also doesn’t help that using hand sanitiser so often, made with a high alcohol content to kill germs, contributes to knuckles, cuticles and palms feeling more fragile than ever. Which is exactly why hand creams are your beauty best friend. 

Whether you’re looking for a budget-friendly everyday essential, a luxurious post-manicure treat or handbag addition with impressive eco-friendly credentials, we’ve handpicked the best of the bunch with options from CeraVe, Byredo, Chanel, Neighbourhood Botanicals, and more. 

Here, you’ll find our favourite 16 hand creams to see you through 2021.
