We’ve all been washing our hands and using hand sanitizers more regularly since the COVID-19 outbreak. Your hands may be extra clean but they’ll also most likely be extra dry.  Now is the time to pay even more attention to your hands so you don’t end up with brittle nails, cracked cuticles or dry skin. 

The simplest way to prevent this from happening is to add a nourishing hand cream to your hand care routine. Check out these five hand creams that will keep your hands hydrated without a greasy feel.

Innisfree hand creams are infused with refreshing scents inspired by life on Jeju, an island in South Korea. The Jeju Life Perfumed Hand Cream comes in 10 variations with available scents including citrus, fruity, floral, woody, aromatic, musk and powdery scents.

Each hand cream is packed with hydrating and nourishing ingredients to keep your hands soft and smooth. The light texture absorbs instantly into the skin and doesn’t leave a greasy residue. The Jeju Life Perfumed Hand Cream’s mini tube packaging also fits perfectly in your everyday makeup bag, making it the ideal hand cream to take with you when you’re on the go.

Pyunkang Yul refrains from using synthetic fragrances and colorants to prevent unwanted irritations, making it a friendly brand for those with sensitive skin.

If all the hand washing and sanitizing have made your hands extremely dry, go for Pyunkang Yul’s Skin Barrier Professional Hand Cream. It’s formulated with nourishing ingredients, including sweet almond oil, avocado oil, and shea butter, which offer rich and long-lasting hydration. Thanks to panthenol and allantoin, this hand cream soothes dry, cracked hands and also helps strengthen your skin barrier, leaving it softer after every use. 

You won’t be disappointed with Benton’s Shea Butter and Coconut Hand Cream – it’s a bestseller for a reason! Enriched with shea butter and coconut oil, this hand cream works miracles for super dry hands. To heal dehydrated hands, be sure to re-apply this hand cream throughout the day especially after washing your hands or applying hand sanitizer. 

If you notice a few wrinkles on your hands, then you can count on this hand cream to improve those fine lines as well. The Shea Butter and Coconut Hand Cream’s hydrating formula won’t just keep your hands moisturized for a longer period of time, but it’ll also keep them soft and smooth.

Can’t resist cute packaging? Neither can I! If you’re a plant lover and in need of a moisturizing hand cream, I recommend checking out The Face Shop’s My Plant Hand Cream. Featuring cactus-shaped jar packaging, these hand creams make a cute addition to your beauty vanity. 

Formulated with agave atrovirens extract, My Plant Hand Cream will leave your hands nourished without leaving a slick feeling. This hand cream also comes with three different scents that are subtle and not overpowering. 

If one hand cream isn’t enough for you, go for the BTS L’Atelier Des Subtils Signature Hand Collection Set from Korean brand VT. Created in collaboration with Korean boy band BTS, this hand cream set includes seven hand creams with unique scents, such as cotton, wood, ocean and musk, so you’re bound to find a scent that you love.

In terms of its moisturizing powers, this hand cream offers deep hydration while protecting your skin from further damage. Your dry hands will love this hand cream’s ultra-nourishing formula, which includes jojoba seed, rosehip fruit and sweet almond oils. And if that isn’t enough, you’ll find shea butter, cocoa and coconut seed butters in the cream’s ingredients list to help protect dry skin and keep your hands smooth.

Massaging your hands is also a great way to pamper them, especially if you have to work with them a lot. Try slowly massaging your hand cream in instead of quickly slathering it on for a more relaxing and soothing experience.
