Beauty Fix: Hate the way just-applied moisturizer feels under your clothes? We have a solution! (And answers to even more of your beauty questions)
This might sound like a silly question, but can I use the same product to moisturize the dry skin on my hands and feet?
Not a silly question at all! It is possible to use a single moisturizer on both hands and feet if your feet aren’t very dry. Most hand creams are effective in moisturizing the skin, but tend to be absorbed rapidly and are less emollient overall since greasy hands are anything but functional. A hand cream that you’ll constantly reach for this winter: Diptyque Luxurious Hand Balm ($46, at Holt Renfrew), which contains apricot and organic argan oils to soften hands without excess slip.
Most foot creams contain heavier moisturizing ingredients that can typically be applied at night in order to maximize the results of the product. A solid bet for soft feet: L’Occitane Shea Butter Foot Cream ($30, at L’Occitane boutiques), which contains 15% shea butter, anti-inflammatory arnica extract and lavender essential oil to soothe dry, tired feet. Apply at night, throw on some cotton socks and wake up to supple feet!
