I’m sure a lot of you have noticed your skin getting drier and drier as December approaches. Dryness affects your hands as well as your complexion. I was sent the Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Fast Absorbing Hand Cream to try for 7 days and report back on my results. I’ll also be sharing my tips on dealing with the dryness that comes with the winter season.
The Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream comes in a small purse-sized tube. It has no scent and the consistency is thin and easy to spread. There is a scented version available as well, if you’d prefer. It was developed to relieve really dry skin that suffers from chapping and cracking. After using it for several days I found that my hands were overall much softer than before, even when I was not using the cream. The difference was particularly noticeable around my cuticles and nails which is where I get the driest.
In order to combat dryness I have found beauty oils to be really effective. So next time, instead of using them only on your face or hair, try mixing something like argan oil with your hand cream or body cream. For extreme dryness, we’re talking hardcore weather here, you could also put some cream on at night before going to bed and covering your hands with gloves. It’s the same concept behind moisturizing your feet and putting socks on. Also, don’t forget to reapply your hand cream often. Hands get dry very easily, specially if your job requires you to wash your hands often.
