Avène - Cicalfate Hand Cream

Winter and cold mean bad times for my hands. And if you think that I'm used to wash my hands several times a day you can imagine how much my hands are suffering these days.

I've tried hundreds of hand creams but never found the right one. My hands are not just dry, but literally chapped, with some small cuts also, therefore hand creams that feature alcohol are not suitable in this case...

If you're also having the same problem you should really try this cream, the Cicalfate Hand Cream by Avène. Actually it did miracles on my hand just after a couple of days.



The consistence of this cream is thick, more like a paste, but since a little goes a long way it will sink just after a quick massage. Therefore I would suggest you to use just a small amount of cream during the day. As a night treatment I apply a more generous amount on my hands before I go to bed, my hand feel a little sticky, but in the morning my hands look much better and restored.

Among the ingredients of this amazing handcream there is sucralfate which helps epidermal repair and copper and zinc sulfates that are antibacterial agents. Avène Thermal Spring Water, as usual, soothes and softens the skin.

Least but not last it is Fragrance-free and paraben-free. 

If your hands only need little hydration go for another hand cream as this could be way too rich for your skin.
