Focus on hands and nails

We spend countless hours buffing and polishing our bodies, finding new ways to keep hair shiny and healthy and obsessing over every complexion concern. But what about our hands and nails? Keep them looking as gorgeous as the rest of you with our picks for must-have hand and nail beauty products.

Focus on hands and nails

Hand scrub

It’s not just your face and body that need exfoliation. Your hands are in equal need of a regular scrub, especially in the winter. We’re partial to the softening power of L’Occitane Shea Butter One Minute Hand Scrub ($22), which keeps hands smooth with the help of shea butter and organic sugars. Bonus: You can also use it on your feet!

Spa gloves

Keep hands soft and smooth all winter long with the help of a pair of Sephora Collection Spa Gloves ($44). The gloves are coated on the inside with a gel packed with grapeseed oil, jojoba oil, olive oil and vitamin E to really give your hands a spa-worthy treatment. Each pair is good for up to 50 uses.

Cuticle cream

Ragged cuticles between manis? Take care of that problem like a pro with Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream ($6). Lemon oil adds mega-softening power and strengthens nails while vitamin E heals and sweet almond oil moisturizes like a charm.

Hand and nail treatment

Keeping hands soft in the dry winter months can be tough, but you’re one step ahead of Mother Nature when you’re equipped with the right tools. We love Clarins Hand and Nail Treatment Cream ($30) for its rich texture, quick-absorbing formula and its ability to strengthen nails and keep skin hydrated no matter the weather.

Nail strengthener

No matter the season, sometimes nails get weak, split and break, which doesn’t really make the ideal base for your favorite nail polish shade. Fix the problem with Nail Life Nail Revitalizer Treatment ($8), which works to mend weak or splitting nails and strengthen them going forward.

Focus on hands and nails

Chapped hands remedy

When hands get really dry, like flaky and uncomfortably dry, you need to break out the big guns. And by big guns we mean cream that treats as well as softens. For that, we like C.O. Bigelow Chapped Hands Remedy ($14), a medicated formula that heals with concentrated glycerin.
