      Ask Ellen: Hand Creams

      Friday, June 22nd, 2007

      Q: So, I was just wondering if you had any recommendations for good quality lotions and/or hand cremes. I wash my hands quite a bit and have had trouble finding a product that can stand up to numerous hand scrubbings. Any experience in this area?
      T.G.

      A: Well T.G. I am like you and fanatic about keeping my hands clean. It is important to keep your hands hydrated so I would recommend applying lotion after every washing. Keep a lotion by your sink, in your bag, in your desk drawer and I always apply lotion at bedtime so that the cream can really get into my skin whilst I am sleeping.

      There are a huge amount of creams and lotions on the market and it can be a little confusing. I actually have a couple of favourites that I can recommend:

      Vaseline Intensive Care Healthy Hand & Nail Revitalizing Hand Lotion
      This is a really fast absorbing cream that makes your hands hydrated and your nails stronger.
      Contains keratin and vitamin E. Small size is perfect for your purse or bedside table.
      $3.79 USD $4.99 CAD

      Principessa Cattiva Diva
      I absolutely love anything made by Principessa. Their silky hand cream is lovely and smells to die for. If you are looking for a perfumed hand cream then this is the perfect one for you.
      $16 USD $18 CAD

      Bliss High Intensity Hand Cream
      This rich cream really softens and smooths your hands and cuticles. On the higher price range I enjoy this cream. It has a citrus fragrance that is quite fresh.
      $18 USD $23 CAD

      L’Occitane Lavender Hand Cream
      A little pricey but pure luxury. I absolutely love the smell of lavender and if you do too then this is a great hand cream. Blends the nourishing benefits of Shea Butter with soothing A.O.C. lavender essential oil and rosemary extract. Also contains vitamin E.
      $20 USD $20 CAD
