Quality hand cream might not seem totally necessary — but with all the typing, styling and high-fiving we do, our hands go through a lot on a daily basis. Still, hand cream usually ends up at the bottom of our list of beauty priorities. We spend hundreds of dollars on anti-aging face serums and hydrating masks for our hair, but hands also show signs of aging — sometimes even more than your face. So in some ways, the best hand creams are some of the most powerful defenses against aging.

Hand cream may not target your crows' feet, under-eye bags and fine lines. But the dark spots, veins and loose skin on your hands are what truly reveal the number of candles on your birthday cake. If you compare your hands to someone 10 years older or 10 years younger, you'll notice a pretty glaring difference. That's why we think — and dermatologists agree — that it's high time to show your hands some love. And a highly reviewed hand cream is the perfect place to start.

With the help of our trusty TotalBeauty.com reviewers, we rounded up 11 of the best hand creams that will leave your hands soft and younger-looking.

Other perks include its fast absorption and gentle formula, which doesn't irritate sensitive or eczema-prone skin.
