What Are The Best Ingredients For Dry Hands?

If you are prone to dry skin, opt for natural ingredients for dry hands, like shea butter or cocoa butter, aloe vera gel, and oils like olive and coconut oil. These ingredients lock in moisture in the skin and keep it hydrated throughout the day. Coconut oil helps in keeping the inflammation to a minimum.
