While winter weddings certainly have their positives - cosy cover-ups, mulled wine reception drinks and roaring fires to name a few! - dry, cracked hands on a bride is definitely one negative.


As the cold weather begins to bite, protecting your hands and nails with an intensive moisturiser is a must. We like Rose Balm Intense for Very Dry Hands and Nails by Lanolips.


The nourishing formula is based on Lanolips' signature medical-grade lanolin, plus shea butter, cocoa seed butter and wheat germ oil (as well as a dash of rose oil for that lovely scent!), and gives hands and nails a real moisturising treat. It's also available in a handy travel-sized tube - perfect for on-the-day application.

Lanolips™ Rose Balm Intense for Very Dry Hands & Nails (50ml, from £8.99; 25ml, from £5.99) is available at victoriahealth.com and Boots stores nationwide
