How to Choose the Best Hand Cream For Dry Skin

in Skin

Have you ever wondered what is in your hand cream for dry skin?  I reach for hand cream every time I wash my hands and it occurred to me that if I use something that often, I should know how it works.  So I started looking into what makes an effective hand cream for dry skin.

It turns out that not all skin care is created equal.  Some of the well known name brands use harsh chemicals in their hand creams that can be harmful to your skin.  They will also use artificial preservatives to give their products a long shelf life.

Natural ingredients are the best way to healthy, smooth skin.  To keep your skin feeling young and vibrant, you need to keep it well hydrated and feed it nutrients.  The best hand cream for dry skin uses natural oils such as grapeseed or avocado oil. 
Using a hand cream with natural oils also adds important nutrients to you skin like vitamin A, E, and the B group vitamins. Do not use any skin care products that contain mineral oil.  Mineral oil feels great as it goes on the skin, however, it clogs pores and forms a barrier that does not allow your skin to breathe.  This interrupts the skin's natural ability to eliminate toxins and can increase blemishes on your skin.

After all my research, the most effective ingredient I have found in skin hydration is functional keratin.  There are many skin care products that boast a keratin level.  You have to be careful because not all forms of keratin can be used by the body.

Functional keratin can be easily absorbed by your skin and has been proven to work with your body to give your skin the deepest hydration.

Cynergy TK is a new product that combines functional keratin with a high antioxidant level. If you find a hand cream for dry skin that includes Cynergy TK buy it immediately.  You will not believe the difference in your skin!

The best hand cream for dry skin will use Phytessence Wakame. This is another natural ingredient that is extremely effective in skin hydration.  Its made from Japanese sea kelp and it boosts the body's natural ability to hold on to moisture. 

Your hands keep you in contact with the world.  They touch everything and they are the most often washed part of your body.  To maintain the health of your hands, choose a hand cream for dry skin that includes natural ingredients to feed your skin as well as hydrate your hands.
