Your hands are one of the first places to show signs of age. Keep them hydrated and nourished with one of these natural lotions and creams.

If you are not familiar with Dr. Hess, you are missing out on a classic beauty brand with deep roots. Established in 1893, the original mission and formula has been serving generations, and still works. If you’re a new mother, you will immediately want to drop this miracle ointment into your diaper bag. It’s excellent for quick relief from dry skin, eczema, cracked heels and cuticles, chapped lips, burns, and more.

There is nothing better than soft, hydrated, and fresh-smelling hands. For those who often work with their hands, this natural grapefruit and bergamot cream is a welcome treasure. It’s vegan-friendly, biodegradable, paraben-free and contains no artificial fragrances. Kiss My Face really does know how to keep your skin healthy and kissable.


Power of a Flower Healing Hand Balm
A perfect hand balm should be simple, travel-sized, soothin,g and protective. This smooth creation has all of that, plus it is made by a natural beauty enthusiast, Annie Jacobson. Annie believes in her homemade products, and she make sure the ingredients are super-nourishing. This little tin contains the goodness of jojoba oil, vitamin E, grapefruit extract, tea tree oil, beeswax, caster oil, liquid lecithin, evening primrose and carrot-seed oil.


Nourish Organic Raw Shea Butter
Although they launched just last year, Nourish is quickly becoming a favorite go-to brand for those who want quality, style, and affordability. Try their unscented raw Shea Butter to moisturize and improve elasticity. Whether you apply to your hands, feet, or your entire body, dry skin will become history. Added bonus: great packaging. You’ll want to display this one on your bathroom shelf.


Dr. Hauschka Hand Cream
Harsh winter conditions require a hand moisturizer with extra-nurturing. You work hard and your hands deserve some holistic pampering. Protect and renew the skin on your hands with Dr. Hauschka’s carefully crafted hand-cream formula. This Natrue-certified cream is filled with good ingredients. Among them Kalanchoe, marshmallow extracts, beeswax, and natural essential oils. All without the oily residue.

M-61 Labs Vitablast C Hand Cream
M-61 Laboratories is heavy on both science and nature. The powerful results are in the products. This hand cream is big on vitamins, deep hydration, and helps with hyper-pigmentation. Even those with the most sensitive skin will benefit from this soothing hand cream. The hydration is so intense no constant reapplying is needed.

Goat Milk Stuff Lotion Stick-Pink Sugary
When you think handmade or family-owned you may think small stuff. Not this brand. Goat Milk Stuff is big on personality and huge on quality. Among all the natural beauty companies out there, this one makes it to the top of my list. All the products are handmade and deliver. Solid lotions are practical, this one comes in two sizes. In order to soothe your dry skin on-the-go the appropriate application should come in the form of a stick or solid lotion. You won’t find any chemicals here, just an amazing sweet scent, soybean oil, beeswax, sunflower oil, cocoa butter, shea butter, fragrance and vitamin E.
