These four hand creams help smooth and hydrate skin. But most importantly, help protect them from sun damage thanks to added SPF.
Hand creams aren't always top of our beauty list in the summer. Sure, we might have a couple knocking around, but really it's when winter hits that we need them. When it comes to sun protection, it's often the opposite way around. We tend to focus more on it during the summer months than in the winter, especially when it comes to our faces vs hands. But the delicate skin on our hands is easily susceptible to damage, all year round. Even during the grey, drizzly autumn and winter months here in Ireland.
We've rounded up four of the best hand creams with SPF included in them. So all the bases are covered!
Jane Iredale Hand Drink €21/£19
Jane Iredale's Hand Drink is endorsed by The Cancer Society and features broad spectrum SPF 15. The lightweight formula makes it a perfect daily hand cream, and on a more superficial note - it smells lovely too, thanks to the addition of organic rose essential oil. There's even a mini version available that fits perfectly into your handbag or car's glove box.
Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Anti-Ageing Hand Cream SPF25 €6.49
Affordable, reliable and more importantly effective. Neutrogena hand cream is one of the first beauty products I remember seeing as a child on my mother's dressing table. It's something I grew up around and now use myself. The added bonus of SPF 25 makes the Anti-Ageing formula one of the best on the market.
AHAVA Age Perfecting Hand Cream SPF 15 €29.45
This non-greasy, quick absorbing hand cream is formulated with anti-oxidant rich Dead Sea Minerals. It defends against the damaging effects of UV rays to stop sun damage in its tracks. As well as that, it actively works at targeting dark spots and uneven skin tone to leave hands looking more youthful.
The Hero Project
Hand Rehab Diamond Dusted Hand & Nail Therapy SPF 20 €13.95
If you're not familiar with The Hero Project then this is a great way to get to know the affordable, cult favourite brand. Hand Rehab is an ultra-rich moisturiser made from aloe vera and hyaluronic acid. It helps to protect thanks to SPF 20 as well as smooth and nourish both hands and nails.
Do you use SPF on your hands too?
