When you think of skincare, people often think about the face, and almost everything on the market – cleansers, moisturisers, lotions, and masks – is specifically made for it. Do you ever wonder why the face gets all the love when our hands are doing all the work? Our hands are also a deadly age giveaway as they are prone to wrinkles and fine lines. And let’s be honest, hand creams are simply not enough, especially when we’re always dousing our hands with hand sanitisers these days. We've rounded up the best hand masks on the market right now so you can give your hard-working hands a little TLC. You can even have it all delivered straight to your doorstep! So, get your shopping list ready and prepare to pamper your hands with these nourishing gloves at home. By Natalie Lam

If you want to up your hand mask game, you have to try this glittery, golden beauty. Formulated with nourishing ingredients like avocado, argan oil, fresh cupuaçu, and murumuru butter, this thermal mask is the ultimate soothing treatment for your hands. Unlike your usual paper masks, this involves a few more steps. Simply place the mask in a bowl that’s big enough to sit both of your hands inside, pour in some hot water, and stir the mask around until the mixture thickens into a lotion-like consistency. Once the mixture isn’t too hot to handle, place your hands in the bowl to soak up this lushness for around 15 minutes. And there you have it – perfectly soft and supple skin.
