Like you, I put my hands through the wringer on an almost daily basis. Aside from the usual elements (like just the daily weather conditions), the skin on my hands contends with a lot of drying agents and potential skin irritants. Household cleaning products, swatching countless beauty products that require me to wash my hands even more than usual with soap and water, and frequent exposure to nail polish and nail polish remover (my poor cuticles!) rock my hands’ world, and not in a good way.
I count on a few things to keep the skin on my hands from feeling like it’s two sizes too small, and lately I’ve been using the new AVEENO Positively Ageless Skin Strengthening Hand Cream every chance I get. While I sleep with an argan oil balm on my cuticles each night, I still need something during the day to nourish and condition my hands, nails, and cuticles—without making them too slick or sticky. I like the way this AVEENO hand cream soaks in—I can still feel it working all day and it smells great, but I can still use my iPad or phone, and pick things up without a thick, greasy coating between my fingers and whatever it is that I’m trying to grasp after applying it. I’ve fallen in love with a lot of pricey hand creams in the past, but at $5.99, Positively Ageless Skin Strengthening Hand Cream gives them a run for their money!
