As a stay at home mother I am always using my hands. If not making lunch for my little one, or cleaning up after his messes, I am doing laundry or cleaning all around the house. It is certainly a nonstop job. I can tell you one thing for sure, it was much easier to be part of the work force than to stay at home and take care of my family. Unfortunately it is my hands and nails that suffer the most. My manicurist is always telling me to wear gloves. For the most part I do wear gloves, especially when cleaning the house. However, I can’t reach for gloves every time I go to wash a dish, or clean something. It is just not practical. Needless to say, soft and moisturized hands and nails are very difficult for me to maintain.
Luckily, I have learned a few easy tricks to keep soft and moisturized hands and nails by finding the best hand lotion out there. First and foremost, I am now an avid shopper for hand lotions. I must own at least 10 lotions at any time. I am always looking for something that both smells amazing and feels lightweight. The one thing I cannot stand is when a lotion feels greasy. I know that those are the ones that are super thick and coat your skin, but I just don’t like that feeling. I like lightweight and I like a soft scent.
There are a few lotions I have found that work really well and could be considered the best hand lotion. The first is Ahava Deadsea Water Mineral Hand Cream. I like Ahava products because they are really moisturizing. Therefore when your hands are really dry, this is your go to cream. It absorbs really quickly, and does not leave an oily film on your hands. This hand cream does not have a scent. However it is perfect for winter, or when your skin is very dry. It is also a great option for those who have sensitive skin.
My second favorite cream is Elemis Nourishing Milk Bath. This can be used as either a milk bath or a lotion. This is the best hand lotion ever! I cannot even begin to explain how amazing it is. It has a milky texture. Glides onto your skin and is instantly absorbed. Has a very faint scent that is warm. Best of all it leaves you hands, skin and feet so soft! I cannot get enough of this lotion. I always have it next to my bed because it is a must before I go to bed. It is also a must right before I go out the door for my hands. This is an instant soft and moisturized hands and feet solution, a definite best hand lotion.
My last must try for soft and moisturized hands and feet is Skinfix Gentle Lotion. I stumbled upon this lotion by accident. I was searching for a lotion I could use on my son whose skin is ultra, hyper sensitive. This lotion is amazing. It has no scent, which frustrates me a bit. However, it leaves your hands and feet so soft! You will not believe the change in your skin. Needless to say, your infant, toddler and entire family can use it. Created for those with eczema, it protects your skin from irritation and leaves it so very soft. This is truly an amazing lotion.
These lotions are truly life changing! They will not only protect your skin, but leave you hands soft and forever moisturized. They are all must try lotions. The Ahava and Skin fix and super affordable. The Elemis lotion is a bit more expensive, however it does last forever and it the best hand lotion in my book. So for all you busy hands that are looking for a solution to achieve soft and moisturized hands and nails every day.
