13 best hand masks for cracked, dry winter skin

13 nourishing hand masks to soften dry, cracked, sore winter skin

Posted by for Skincare

As the weather cools down, changes to our skin are often one of the first ways we notice seasonal shifts. If you suffer from dry, sore hands every year, take this as a sign to finally do something about it with a rich, deeply moisturising hand mask. 

How do you know winter has arrived? Well, if you’re anything like us, your skin, hair and lips will develop an insatiable appetite for hydrating, moisturising formulas. Plus, overtime, your hands will take on the same dry, cracked qualities.

However, all is not lost. You needn’t spend the entire cold snap wincing at sore palms and dry cuticles. Enter intensely repairing and deeply nourishing hand masks – designed to be worn for anywhere between 30 minutes and overnight. 

These clever formulations work to restore skin’s softness and suppleness with rich blends of nourishing oils, softening acids, vitamins and forms of plant “butter”, such as avocado oil, hyaluronic acid, vitamin E and shea butter. Here are some of the best to shop this chilly season.
