Just to give a couple of examples, just think about the fact that we do the laundry and wash the dishes with our hands, using a lot of detergents. Or think about how often we wash our hands with soaps that can also be aggressive. Especially in this period where washing hands several times a day becomes very important to prevent our health. Furthermore, our hands are continually subjected to atmospheric agents such as cold, wind, frost, exposure to UVA rays. Well, you will have understood that now that autumn has begun and winter is upon us. It is essential to start devoting more care to our hands, which, together with our face, constitute the part of the body most exposed to irritants and low temperatures.
In fact, if we suffer a lot from the cold, we often cannot repair our hands even wearing a pair of gloves. This makes our hands prone to dryness, chapping, redness, and premature aging: we can solve this problem by purchasing a hand cream, a cosmetic that should never be missing on your beauty shelf in autumn and winter.
Nowadays it is possible to find an infinite number of hand creams on the market. All made more or less with different ingredients. Depending on your needs. You may be looking for a hand cream that is moisturizing, nourishing, or soothing. Depending on the intended use, you will certainly give more importance to some ingredients and some less. In order to choose the right-hand cream, you must, first of all, know that behind the hand cream there is a list of ingredients. That is the INCI, which can be green or not green, depending on how many natural ingredients are in it. If you are therefore making a path of choosing organic products, pay attention to this aspect. But now let’s go in order. And let’s analyze the various types of needs that a woman can have when she has to buy a good hand cream.
If you are looking for a nourishing hand cream, you will need to find one that contains plenty of butter. Such as shea butter, which is very common in hand creams.
If you want a moisturizer, you will only need to have the cream contain oils. Each oil has its own characteristics: there are heavier oils, such as sunflower and olive, and lighter oils.
You can also find yourself in a situation where you are looking for a soothing cream. And in this case, it will be necessary that there is a soothing substance. Such as calendula, chamomile, hypericum, allantoin, vitamin E. Soothing substances may be present in oil or extracts.
In addition to this, another element to take into consideration when choosing a hand cream is its consistency, which must be to your liking: the cream absorbs faster if you choose a nourishing cream. With a fluid texture and light consistency that, therefore, does not leave annoying residues on the skin.
Also avoid fragrances and perfumes, which certainly make the hand cream more pleasant to apply, but can become dangerous if you have any allergies or particularly sensitive skin.
