Whether masking is an absolutely vital part of the skin care process is relative to the person. Some of us are happy to cleanse, tone and moisturize, and others prefer throwing serums, eye creams and futuristic tools — like an LED mask — into the mix. Personally, we count ourselves part of the group that believes the unnecessarily extra but ultimately beneficial parts of our routine are what make it worth doing. And more often than not, hand masks make the cut.
No, they’re not nearly as popular as the ones we put on our face, but come winter, are they not a little slice of hydrating heaven? When you’ve washed your hands dozens of times to avoid catching the office cold, braved the snow to grab lunch and touched the gross subway railing daily, your hands are left dryer than sandpaper. Yes, there are also hand creams to grab when in between hand washes, but rarely do they offer the kind of moisture that truly lasts all day. In other words, we just gave you an excuse to put down the phone, throw on some mitts and pretend you’re in the middle of a spa living your best life.
Ahead, the best and mostly cost-effective hand masks to keep in your bathroom this winter and beyond.
