There’s no denying how dry and cracked hands have become from all the incessant washing and frequent sanitising of late. And while ridding germs and dirt is more important than ever especially now, washing also removes skin’s natural oils and breaks down its moisture barrier, so it is important to moisturise after. Here are some ultra-hydrating treats that will soothe and repair without leaving a layer of grease. Let your skin soak these up right now.
