Hand it to you
So it happened. The seasons are changing. As they get colder, everything needs to change. The clocks, your sweaters, and how you use hand cream. Well, you should just start to use hand creams. As weather gets a bit nippier, hands start to show the effects. Dry, cracked hands are not comfortable or good looking. It is important to build a habit of applying it because it will keep hands looking younger.
There are tried and true classic hand creams that do not quit their job. For the driest hands that look like they are past the point of no return, reach for Neutrogena’s Hand Cream ($6).
