During the winter, Mother Nature can really wreak havoc on a good manicure. That's because when the temps drop, we're forced to either shove our hands into gloves or expose them to the cold-which can lead to rough, crackly palms and cuticles. To keep our "high fivers" in tip-top shape, we keep the following hand creams handy. The emollient moisturizers nourish skin, condition nails, and in most cases, leave a lovely scent behind. (Sure beats the smell of the sterile bathroom soap at the office!) Massage a good hand cream on throughout the day for a mini spa-like experience-then smooth any excess on the ends of your hair to tame frizz and flyaways. Your hands (and hair!) will thank you.
