Top 10 hand creams to make your hands soft and smooth

If you’ve ever sewn with dry cracked hands, you know how bad it is when fabric clings to your skin like velcro. Not only is it uncomfortable, but it can also cause your fabric to tangle or bunch up and make sewing difficult. Sewing is a delicate process that requires precise movements. If your hands are dry and cracked, it can be difficult to grip the fabric and get a precise stitch.

As we age, we lose collagen and elasticity in our skin. This causes our skin to become thinner, making it more susceptible to cracking and sores – two things that are definitely not conducive to sewing. Our skin produces less and less oil, which can lead to dryness, wrinkles, and a loss of elasticity. This is why it’s so important to moisturize our skin regularly, and hand cream is an essential part of any skincare routine. In addition to keeping our hands soft and supple, hand cream can also help to seal in moisture and protect our hands from the elements.

There are many different hand creams on the market, but not all of them are created equal. When choosing a hand cream for sewing, you’ll want to look for one that is thick enough to provide long-lasting moisture without being too greasy. You’ll also want to choose a hand cream with anti-aging properties to help prevent wrinkles and other signs of aging. With those criteria in mind, here are my top 10 picks for the best hand creams for sewists.

I've had excellent results with CeraVe, Eucerin and Gold Bond. I am notorious for washing my hands all the time so I tend to have dry hands. I have been using the Eucerin Body Wash to wash my hands and that seems to be helping. CeraVe is my go to for my skin care on my face and neck.

Thanks for all your useful advice.

Thank you for the insight! Your experience reminds me of a joke: at a job interview a young applicant is asked "I see you worked for company X until 2020 and for company Y from 2021 onward, but what did you do in 2020?" "I washed my hands", was the answer! Indeed my hands were not ok during the spring and summer of 2020.
