Your Guide to Natural Hand Creams!
During the Winter months our hands can become dry and even cracked. To ensure that you keep your skin hydrated and soft, it is so important to be using a natural nourishing hand cream every day!
I often hear that your hands are one of the first places to show signs of ageing! As we're constantly washing and using our hands throughout the day, it's no wonder why! Whether or not you have sensitive skin, during the Winter months our hands can become dry and even cracked. To ensure that you keep your skin hydrated and soft, it is so important to be using a natural nourishing hand cream every day! We have so many beautiful scents and formulations available here on Nourished Life, the only problem will be choosing your favourite!
Weleda Skin Food
One of my go-to hand creams for the Winter time is the Weleda Skin Food, $14.95! This multipurpose product deeply hydrates the skin and protects it from environmental stressor using 100% natural ingredients including Chamomile, Calendula and Wild Pansy. You can use Skin Food not only as a nourishing hand cream, but also as a split end treatment, face mask for dehydrated skin, makeup primer and cuticle softener. It's a definite beauty cabinet must have!

Another fantastic product from Weleda is the Sea Buckthorn Hand Cream, $16.95. Formulated with essential oils including Light Sesame and Sea Buckthorn, this hand cream helps to protect hard working hands from moisture loss.
