Three hand creams you need in your life right now

I’ve never been much of a lotion junkie. I tend to keep it pretty basic, i.e. daily moisturizer with SPF on my face (duh) and some body lotion when my limbs get really dry and itchy (which thankfully doesn’t happen that often). But lately—maybe because of the unpredictable weather or because I’ve been doing some deep cleaning around the ol’ apartment—I’ve noticed my hands need more TLC than usual, and much to my surprise I’ve developed a roster of hand creams for every occasion! Pardon the pun, but it’s important to keep them handy, so I’ve been stowing them everywhere. Here are my top three picks and why I’m reaching for them on the regular.

Jergens BB Hand Perfecting Hand Cream has pride of place in my purse because it has SPF 20 in it, which makes it an ideal choice for daytime use. And in case you hadn’t noticed, hands tend to show signs of aging (and sun damage) before other parts of your body, so it’s a good idea to do what you can to keep your mitts looking forever young.

Marc Anthony’s Deep Repair Aloe Vera Jasmine Extra Soothing Hand Cream is my desktop staple, and I like to take frequent hand cream breaks throughout the day because it smells so darn lovely, and it’s extremely moisturizing. This hand cream has actually become a bit of a hot commodity around the office, and some of my co-workers have been stopping by for a fix (I might have to start hiding it in my drawer. Kidding. Not kidding.)

Royal Apothic’s Perfectly Perfect Hand Creme in Cutting Garden really is, well, perfect. I’ve been keeping it on my night stand to guarantee sweet, sweet dreams. The packaging is Instagram gold, and the formula is light and non-greasy. Plus, the subtle floral scent has me drifting off to dream land with English gardens on my mind (which is never a bad thing).
