Frequent washing and paranoid sanitizing have your palms feeling raw? Lounge has just the salve:

The Body Shop Hemp Hand Protector

Though not the ideal choice for an ingredient in beauty products given its scent, hemp seed oil is beneficial for the skin. The scent of this cream is not overpowering and the cream itself leaves your hands feeling moisturized and soft. Available at; 450 for 30ml

Organic Riot Body Anti-Pigmentation Spotlight Cream

With cold-pressed mango butter, vitamins C and A, and Tamanu oil, the cream is effective even on tough spots like elbows and knees. Available at; 550 for 50g

Kiehl’s Ultimate Strength Hand Salve

If you have super dry skin, this cream, a concoction of avocado and sesame botanical oils, is for you. The natural wax derived from olive oil forms a protective barrier against moisture loss. Available at; 1,100 for 75ml and 1,800 for 150ml

L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream

Along with 20% organic shea butter sourced from Burkina Faso, this non-greasy cream also contains honey, almond and coconut oil and is simply the last word in moisturising. Available at; 2,100 for 150ml

Dot & Key Happy Hands Trio

A hand cream and a sanitizer all in one could be just the thing you need now. With a jojoba oil and shea butter base, the cream comes in three variants: lavender and peppermint, rose and geranium, and mandarin and lime. They are also vegan, cruelty-free, alcohol- and paraben-free. Available at; 1,185 for all 50ml tubes
