Beauty Spotting: the best hand lotions to keep on your desk

Written by Bryce

Dry hands lead to hand dandruff and loss of boyfriend symptoms. It’s clinically proven.

If you’re anything like me, you sit at a desk in front of a computer screen for several hours at a clip. You get up to adjust your sweater, to grab a snack, to find some lip balm, to pee, and obviously to wash your hands a bunch- but when it’s getting cold out and we’re fiddling around with keyboards and hand washing all day, it only leads to one pain-in-the-you-know-what symptom. Dry hands.

Dry hands, aside from being generally ugly, can lead to several severe life complications including (but not limited to):

  1. Breakups with boyfriends (who wants to hold a crispy hand?)
  2. Having to give more oral satisfaction if your boyfriend sticks around, because honestly, your hands won’t cut it.
  3. Blood on your keyboard
  4. A weird symptom that resembles dandruff on your gloves

Don’t despair, though- we found some pretty perfect solutions to keep your little fingers and palms completely perfect:

  1. Glowology’s Nourishing Hand Lotion for Sensitive Skin. It’s hypoallergenic, light, smells like a dream, and the pump is perfect to keep on your desktop. Your biggest issue now will be keeping people out of your desk area in search of a little hand moisture.
  2. Dixie Bits Whippa Peel. OK, so this one’s actually a body lotion, but it’s packed with real ginger, ginseng, and marshmallow root and is light enough to have a greaseless hand moisturizing experience. It’s also great on arms and elbows- so put that in your pipe!
  3. Burts Bees Shea Butter Hand Repair. This one has a really mild scent, so it’s perfect for fragrance-sensitive people (especially guys that don’t want to smell like gals), and the shea butter formula goes to work instantly for the most intensive lightweight therapy we’ve seen yet.
