To look after the delicate hand skin, it's a good idea to adequately moisturize them to keep the skin in tact, and prevent microscopic tears, which occur when skin loses a lot of moisture. Replenish moisture post-wash and whenever your hands feel tight and uncomfortable with a lightweight non-greasy hand cream. A good ingredient to look out for is shea butter, which naturally helps heal skin, restores the skin barrier and further protects it from dryness.
Recently, IMM came across a neat little French Brand, Les Couvent Des Minimes, which have a line of hand creams concocted from ancient recipes featuring curative herbs and flowers that surrounded Les Couvent Des Minimes in France. Their range of hand creams stood out because of their gorgeous packaging, heavenly scents and convenient size. Each hand cream ($8) is made with shea butter and has a lightweight, silky and non-sticky feel, which leaves hands feeling soft and smooth. Throw one in your purse, keep one desk and side, and slather on till your hands' content!
