This £6 cream has been hailed as a miracle for ultra dry skin

This time of year, our skin can really take a hit, and in particular, our hands can become extremely dry and uncomfortable. Even those who have never suffered with dry skin before can find themselves facing cracked, red raw mitts that need all the extra TLC.

Luckily, the internet seems to have found the dream cream that’ll tackle all symptoms of winter hands. Cuticura Mildly Medicated Dry Skin Cream has been garnering rave reviews, and promises to give visible results in just seven days. It’s suitable for dry and sensitive skin, and even for those suffering with conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.

The cream uses a concoction of incredibly potent, powerful ingredients that nourish and protect. First up, there’s aloe vera and zinc oxide, which helps to reduce skin irritation and inflammation, along with coconut oil, vitamin E, and essential amino acids, which help to maintain skin health. The cream also features glycerin and shea butter to moisturise and hydrate effectively.

The reviews on its product page on Amazon speak volumes, with many hailing it as a miracle remedy for their extremely dry skin.

‘This cream does exactly what it says it will,’ wrote one user. ‘I have a really dry skin and it gets quite painful. This cream literally worked in one day. It stopped it being dry and cracking as long as I apply every day it works wonders (I’ve tried all sorts and was moisturising multiple times a day and nothing worked. I wish I had tried this stuff sooner [sic].’

It’s not just for hands either. Other comments reveal it works on random dry patches on arms, as well as legs. ‘As soon as I received this cream I had to put it straight on my dry itchy legs. First use was at night which resulted in me not waking up scratching my legs,’ revealed another customer.

The best news is that the cream only costs a mere £5.99, and can be bought easily on Amazon UK. We’ll be slathering it on sharpish.
