Helping hand! Avoid dry hands this Winter with these beauty must-haves from Asos and more

From left to right clockwise:

ESPA Ginger & Pink Pepper Handcare Collection, £30,

It’s not too early to start thinking about Christmas, and this duo of hand wash and lotion would make a lovely gift. 

Both are nourishing on the skin and this new fragrance Ginger and Pink Pepper is delightfully warming and wintery.

Starskin Hollywood Hand Model £8.50,

Slip your hands in to these plastic gloves for 15 minutes, during which time the intensely moisturising serum inside will sink deeply in to the skin. The nourishing effect is boosted by the sort of ‘greenhouse’ effect these mitts create. 

Nailberry Little Treasure Cuticle Oil, £17, Selfridges and

Soft, smooth cuticles not only look neat and tidy but also promote healthy nail growth. This one is made of sweet almond oil and vitamins E and F to instantly nourish skin around the nails. Massage it into the tips of fingers every night.

Soaper Duper Passionfruit Hand Wash, £5, Tesco and

There are lots of reasons why Soaper Duper is one of our favourite new brands. Their products are made mostly from naturally derived ingredients rather than harsh chemicals, come in recycled – and recyclable – packaging, and support Water Aid. This hand wash won’t dry out the skin, and this new fragrance smells good enough to eat.

Woods of Windsor Gardeners Blackberry & Thyme Exfoliating Hand Scrub  £4.99,

Specially formulated for hardworking hands, this scrub contains particles of pumice to remove any lingering dirt and dead skin cells. The blackberry extract helps to moisturise, while thyme oil has a gentle antibacterial effect on the skin. 

It smells amazing, too.

La Prairie Cellular Hand Cream, £84, House of Fraser

The hands are one of the first places to show signs of ageing, so although it’s expensive, this luxury offering from La Prairie is worth it as it acts like a facial for the hands. It lightly exfoliates, helps reduce the appearance of age spots and improves firmness and elasticity in the skin over time.

Ameliorate Intensive Hand Treatment, £15,

Ameliorate’s body lotion is a godsend for rough, bumpy skin, and this new hand cream is equally as effective on dry, chapped hands and cuticles. Like the lotion, it contains lactic acid which gently exfoliates, plus a host of active hydrating ingredients to improve the look and feel of hands.

YOPE Ginger & Sandalwood Hand Cream  £7.99,

Cute packaging, natural ingredients and addictives scents: YOPE’s new hand creams tick all the boxes. This one contains olive oil and shea butter to offer instant relief to dry, chapped hands and have a firming effect, without leaving behind a greasy film on the skin.
