Moisturising is a popular part of most people’s daily beauty routine.

However, some think it is only their face or body that needs to be hydrated and lathered with creams and serums, when in fact our hands also need a little TLC.

Not only does the weather wreak havoc with our hands so does UVA and UVB rays, washing up or gardening, among other tasks.

While some may be turning to nourishing moisturisers, such as O'Keeffe's Working Hands Hand Cream, others may need a beauty treatment that provides even more hydration.

Hand masks provide exactly that, as they allow the formula to absorb deeper into the skin.

When shopping for a hand mask, collagen-boosting solutions and products with healing properties, such as aloe vera and vitamin E, as well as hyaluronic acid, are highly sought after.

While some may be looking for hand masks to cover the entire hand, others may be looking for sheet masks to apply to the backs of the palm.

Although some may want to pay their cuticles and area around the nail some extra care.

There are a whole host of hand masks for shoppers to buy to suit all skincare needs and budgets, so you can enjoy your very own pamper in the comfort of your own home.
