We all love when the winter time comes around and it becomes perfectly acceptable to drink two hot chocolates in one day, no questions asked. But, as much as we love winter, it’s all fun and games until you realize you have left your gloves at home, and you find your hands to be rough, cracked and seriously chilly. What’s a girl to do? Whip out her best hand cream, of course.
We’ve rounded up some of our favorite hand creams to keep those hands nice and silky smooth through the winter months. Bonus: These are small enough to fit in your purse for constant hydration. From natural oils to lingering scents, your hands will be thanking you all day long.
