Answer is surprisingly yes! Not many people know the correct way to put on hand cream.
Hand Cream is most efficient when it is absorbed with heat. That means, to maximise the benefits of the hand cream, after squeezing some onto your hands, rub it in quickly for about 10 seconds before spreading it over your entire hand area.
Recommended Hand Creams:
Neutrogena Hand Cream Norwegian Formula.
This is very concentrated, so you only need to use a tiny amount to get the best effect. Extremely recommended for winter or dry/chapped hands.

Changes in weather conditions in winters and summers can be hard on the skin. The dry and cold air in winter can drain essential moisture from the skin, making it look capped and dry. Follow these tips to maintain your skin healthy in winters.
Skin Care Tips in Winters
Use SPF sunscreen on face, neck and all visible parts of body when going out during winters.
Do not take excessive long and hot showers as this will deplete the natural skin moisturizer.
Keep your skin nourish by using good quality cleansing cream and mositurizer and wear warm clothes that does not create any iching sensation on the skin.
An ancient Chinese herbal remedy for detoxification during winter is drinking a glass of hot water with lemon. This cleanses the liver and gall bladder and the body cleans blood faster, thus toxins responsible for bad skin are eliminated.
Drink adequate water, say 12 glasses a day.
Take proper sleep.
