Hand cream: how to avoid dry hands without getting greasy hands?


Say goodbye to dry hands by choosing the right moisturising hand care for your needs.

Our hands are always heavily exposed to external factors such as pollution, sunlight and chemicals, which can damage the skin on this part of our body. Who hasn't experienced the feeling of having dry hands? All it takes is for the first chills of autumn to arrive and that dry feeling worsens. This is why it is fundamental to follow a specific care routine to moisturise your hands.
An essential item at home as well as in your handbag, hand cream is the perfect partner to keep your hands moisturised. There's no shortage of different options to suit the specific needs of this part of your skin. And anyway, it deserves some special attention. Here are our suggestions for creams that can revolutionise the look and feel of your hands.

1. Ekos Ucuuba hand cream

Behind this ultra-effective cream lies a secret: its formula incorporates he cationic technology that forms a kind of coating that adheres to the skin. In practice, it works like this: your skin is made up of negatively charged substances, while the cream contains positively charged ingredients. Remember your school chemistry classes? Opposites attract. In other words, the cream doesn't leave an unpleasant greasy feeling on the skin, doesn't feel sticky and guarantees 24 hours of hydration.

2. Ekos Castanha hand cream

Based on Castanha oil, Castanha hand cream is one of our best-selling products. As well as being rapidly absorbed by the skin, it stimulates the production of structuring proteins in the deepest layers of the epidermis. As a result, it evens out skin texture, improves elasticity and leaves a velvety feel. An essential for perfect hands, that has already won over hundreds of thousands of women around the world.

3. Ekos Maracujá hand cream

The oil made from Maracujá, or passion fruit, seeds in the formula of Ekos Maracujá hand cream is rich in essential fatty acids that moisturise and soothe the skin.

4. Ekos Açaí moisturising hand cream

Rich in phytosterols and energising compounds, the Açaí oil in Ekos Açaí hand cream revitalises skin and makes it look full of vitality. This hand cream is ideal for repeated application throughout the day.

Never forget to protect your hands

Once moisturised, it's time to move on to the next step in your hand care routine: sun protection. Apply SPF30 or greater sun protection to the back of your hands every day. This effectively creates a barrier that protects the skin from UVA and UVB rays, preventing premature ageing. Because our hands also suffer from the passing of time, and often reveal our age, with unsightly brown spots.
