If you work with your hands or wash them frequently, you will be no stranger to dry, chapped hands. Rough, flaky and cracked hands are common among people of all ages. Dry hands can turn red, irritated and uncomfortable. In some cases, hands can become extremely dehydrated, cracked and even start to bleed. So what is the best treatment for extra dry skin?
Causes of dry hands
First of all, you need to understand what makes your hands dry. Here are some common causes of dry skin.
- Lack of hydration
- Prolonged UV exposure
- Environmental factors such as harsh wind and low humidity
- Excessive exposure to drying substances such as alcohol and soap
- Medical conditions such as eczema or dermatitis
Our skin has its natural protective barrier to retain moisture and keep irritants out. Chronically dry skin often suffers from the weakened skin’s natural barrier, making your skin prone to hydration loss. The uncomfortable feeling of tightness and itchiness makes you feel like scratching your hands, but it can cause further damage to the skin’s barrier, making hands even drier over time. This vicious cycle can develop over time and become hard to fix.
Moisturising is the best remedy
As simple as it sounds, one of the best treatments for dry hands is using a good hand moisturiser. Unfortunately, finding the right hand cream for extremely dry skin is not easy. Many beauty hand creams just won’t solve the problem. That’s why we’ve picked the most effective hand cream for you.

Tough Hands Intensive Hand Cream 150g
Active ingredients help combat dry skin
Scientifically formulated Tough Hands hand cream is enriched with a list of active ingredients designed to revive dry skin, including Alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), a natural exfoliator proven to gently remove dead skin layers and stimulate cell renewal. It is particularly helpful for improving the appearance of rough hands with hard calluses.
The most important function of a good hand cream is hydration. Natural Moisturizing Factors (NMFs), including UREA, sodium PCA and glycerine work in conjunction to deeply nourish dehydrated skin, attract moisture to your skin and elevate the skin’s moisture level. Natural vitamin E soothes irritated hands and assists in treating skin inflammation.
Extra dry skin with a weakened barrier can find it hard to retain it moisture. Tough Hands hand cream is specially formulated with dimethicone, which establishes a thin, non-greasy film on your skin that seals in the moisture and protects your skin from losing water. It effectively enhances the skin’s weakened barrier functions and helps to shield your skin from harsh environment.
Additionally, Tough Hands hand cream also contains lemon myrtle and tea tree extract with antimicrobial properties, promoting the healing of cracked skin and minor cuts.
Tough Hands hand cream has a thick but greaseless gel-cream consistency, which penetrates deep and absorbs fast. It instantly softens dry hands, restores skin’s moisture balance and strengthens its protective barrier, leaving your hands soft and supple, no matter how rough they were before using it.
Best hand cream for day and night
