Thank-you for your enquiry. The problem with a lot of the over the counter hand creams and treatments, unfortunately, is that they don’t have any active nourishing ingredients in them. So effectively, it feels like you’re nourishing your skin, when in the meantime, you’re not really giving your skin much in terms of hydration and nourishment at all. You really need to make sure that your hand product has good, quality, active ingredients. I would recommend the Neostrata Problem Dry Skin Cream.
