How to Choose the Ideal Hand Cream

We’ll offer valuable tips on how to choose a hand cream

Taking care of your hands goes beyond just keeping them clean. If you work with your hands or simply want to maintain soft and healthy skin, learning how to choose the ideal hand cream is essential. With plenty of options on the market, figuring out the most beneficial hand cream can be overwhelming.

However, we’ve got you covered with our handy guide to help you find the ideal hand cream tailored to your needs and lifestyle. At Sabai arom, we understand hand cream. Our Jasmine Ritual Hand Cream is one of our best-sellers, and we’ll be happy to tell you all about it. But first, we’ll help you identify the major factors you should be considering when shopping for hand cream. We’ll tell you how to choose hand cream based on five factors and what to avoid.

1. Understanding Your Skin Type

The first step is identifying your skin type. Just as you wouldn’t use the same face cleanser for oily and dry skin, your hands deserve personalized care, too. If your hands tend to get dry easily, opt for a rich, thick, and hydrating hand cream. A lighter, non-greasy formula might be more suitable for those with hands that perspire a lot. Consider your skin’s unique needs and choose a hand cream that complements them. For those who work with your hands, try to choose a hand cream that counter-acts or provides protection against substances, solutions or environments you encounter on the job.

2.Look for Natural Ingredients

Nature often knows best when it comes to skincare. Keep an eye out for hand creams enriched with natural ingredients. Shea butter, aloe vera, and almond oil are just a few examples of skin-loving elements that provide deep nourishment without the harshness of synthetic additives. Natural ingredients add to the overall health and resilience of your skin.

3. Seek Wisdom in Reviews and Recommendations

In the digital age, the experiences of others are just a click away. Before committing to a hand cream, take a moment to read reviews and recommendations. Honest opinions from people who have tried the product can provide valuable insights. Look for feedback on how the hand cream performs over time, especially if you’re seeking long-term benefits. This step ensures you’re investing in a product that lives up to its promises. Bonus points should be awarded to reviewers who share their skin type and lifestyle in their reviews so you can match the product to yours.

4. Consider the Texture

The texture of a hand cream can make or break your experience. A thick and heavy cream might be perfect for bedtime indulgence, but during the day, you may prefer something lighter that absorbs quickly. Finding a texture that suits your preferences ensures that you’ll actually enjoy using the hand cream regularly. After all, skincare should feel like a treat, not a chore.

5. Look for Added Benefits

While moisturizing is the primary goal, why settle for just that when you can have more? Explore hand creams that offer additional benefits, such as anti-aging properties, UV protection, or even aromatherapy elements. These added features can elevate your hand care routine, providing extra protection and indulgence.

Some Ingredients to Avoid

If you’re shopping for a quality hand cream, there’s a list of several ingredients that should be avoided at all costs. We’ll tell you why.

Parabens

Parabens were pretty helpful when they were first added to hand cream. They prevent fungus and bacteria from growing in lotions and hand creams. Later they were linked to breast cancer and hormone disruption. Several parabens can be found in hand creams and should be avoided. Look out for butylparaben, methylparaben, ethylparaben, isobutylparaben, and propylparaben.

Phthalates

Phthalates are used in hand creams to create a creamy consistency. They also help fragrant hand creams preserve their aroma for longer. However, they have been linked to skin irritation, type II diabetes, insulin resistance, obesity, asthma, allergies, and reproduction problems in men and women.

Triethanolamine

This ingredient is used to balance the pH in hand creams. It’s considered moderately hazardous and shouldn’t be used long-term. It’s a skin irritant, which should negate including the ingredient in your hand cream, but it’s also a respiratory irritant and toxic to the immune system.

Mineral Oil

Petrolatum, petroleum jelly and mineral oil are all common ingredients in lower-quality hand creams because of their low cost, and some wrongly consider them moisturizing ingredients. Some mineral oils may not be purified properly and can contain traces of known carcinogens called PAHs. These interfere with the function of the endocrine system.
