As celebs like Madonna and Sarah-Jessica Parker will attest, nothing betrays a woman’s age quite like the hands.

Your hands are always in contact with the elements, household chemicals and extreme temperatures causing sun damage, dryness, chapped skin and age spots. Yet our mitts are often left off the list when it comes to pampering.

Here are three products that help you look after your hands and keep you looking younger as well:

L’Occitane Dry Skin hand cream
Boasting a mix of shea butter, honey and sweet almond extract, this yummy balm glides on and absorbs to help heal and protect dry or dehydrated skin. Plus it contains anti-oxidising vitamin E to help nourish the hands.

Dermalogica Multivitamin Hand & Nail Treatment
This brilliantly non-greasy treatment works to protect and repair chapped hands while strengthening the nails against splitting and peeling. Algae extract and sweet almond oil help heal dry, rough hands meanwhile the antioxidant extracts of grape seed and vitamin E guard against further damage.

Burt’s Bees Almond Milk Beeswax Hand Crème
This all-natural cream, made with almond oil, aloe and vitamin E, is an intensive option for particularly dry skin. It’s gorgeously nourishing and smells delicious.
