Show of hands for anyone experiencing extremely dry, chapped hands. This handwashing is no joke and hand sanitizer just adds another layer of dryness. We wanted to share with you a few moisturizing gems we have come across that may just work for you. Best part is all of these brands are clean & green beauty brands, so you don't have to worry about any nasty ingredients like petroleum or mineral oil. Plus, we want to share with you a couple of dry hand relief tips.
KOCURE Haitian Moringa Oil ($20) : Oil can be tricky, because it can leave your hands with a greasy residue, but we are here to let you know this oil DOES NOT leave any greasiness. It soaks in real good, real fast.
ONE LOVE ORGANICS Multi-tasking Wonder Balm ($49) : This balm does it all. It can be used on your face, neck, body to include your hands. The ingredients are yummy and the scent is to die for.
Pro Tip #1 Always moisturize right after washing your hands to help seal in the hydration. Using a product where water is not the first ingredient will help. All of the products listed do use water as an ingredient.
BEURRE Shea Butter Hand & Body Cream - Eczema Formula ($12.00) : For those of you who love Shea and need a fix, we have just the product for you! This brand makes creamy, cold-pressed shea combined with skin-healing, in-house infused oils.

Packed with antioxidants, non-allergenic, vitamin rich ingredients that soaks in quick and deep to bring your chapped hands back to life.
Pro Tip #2 If you hands are really raw & irritated, lather on your moisturizer after washing your hands and wrap you hands in some plastic wrap. For even more relief, put your plastic wrapped hands in some oven mitts or socks. Let them sit while you watch a your favorite movie.
