Summer is now upon us, making it more important than ever to take care of your skin - including your hands. Most skincare focuses on the face and neck, but the hands should not be forgotten. DCSI has used our expertise to put together a list of some of the best hand lotions on the market.  We found the top-hand lotions and recommend finding the one that works best for you. Using hand lotion daily will help keep your hands soft and hydrated, especially now that we have all increased our hand washing and use of hand sanitizers. Below are our recommendations:

Best Overall Hand Lotion

One of the best hand lotions on the market today is the La Roche-Posay Cicaplast. It contains niacinamide, shea butter, and the brand’s signature thermal spring water. It is great for nourishing dry hands, soothing irritation, and strengthening the skin’s barrier.  Pros:
  • Budget-friendly 
  • Absorbs quickly
  • Long-lasting moisture

Best Hand Lotion on a Budget

Neutrogena has a highly concentrated Norwegian Formula hand lotion, Noorse Formule Deep Moisture Fast Absorbing Body Lotion, which is one of the greatest hydrating lotions. It contains humectant glycerin to hydrate and smooth dry skin.  Pros:
  • Budget-friendly
  • Fragrance-free
  • A little will last a long time

Best Drugstore Hand Lotion

O’Keeffe’s brand is commonly known in drugstores for its Working Hands and Healthy Feet lotions. Working Hands is formulated to help dry, cracked skin. It has hydrating glycerin and emollient mineral oil. Not only does it hydrate, but it also protects the skin barrier from future damage.  Pros:
  • Budget-friendly
  • Protective
  • Fragrance-free

Best Hand Lotion to Splurge On

Sometimes it is best to splurge on a hand lotion like Aesop Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm. This hydrating hand lotion is high-end and nourishes hands with sweet almond oil, coconut oil, and natural butters. Your skin will feel softer and have a woody-citrus aroma.   Pros:
  • Nice smell
  • Natural formula
  • Softens skin

Best Luxury Hand Lotion

L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream is among the best hand lotions on the luxury end. It is made with plant oils, nourishing honey, and almond milk. It is packaged in an aluminum tube and will leave your hands silky-smooth.  Pros:

  • No synthetic fragrances

Best for Mature Skin - Anti-Wrinkle Hand Lotion

Combating fine lines, dark spots, uneven texture, and other signs of aging can be tough, but not with the expert-formulated StriVectin Anti-Wrinkle Volumizing and Rejuvenating Hand Cream. It is on the pricier side but contains humectant and hyaluronic acid in addition to antioxidants to hydrate, boost radiance, and tone your skin.  Pros:
  • Minimize fine lines
