Though fall was off to an unseasonably warm start, increasingly cold temperatures are making up for lost time, sending wardrobes for a loop and requiring some sudden changes to even the most well-stocked beauty arsenals. Incoming? Mega-moisturizing masks make the cut, as do ceramides-packed face balms. But, of course, no routine is quite winter-proof without the addition of hand cream—the only answer to the all-too-common cracked and chapped manicure.

This year, when choosing which tube to tote around, why not turn to fashion’s favorite jewelry designers for advice? After all, theirs is a craft that requires perfectly smooth pointers to better display all the glitz and glam around them. “It is so important, as a jewelry designer, to keep my hands soft and moisturized—I wear a lot of rings and bracelets!” says Aurélie Bidermann of her gold-plated cuffs and statement sapphire and turquoise rings. From a balm that carries the sweet scent of a Brazilian nut to a luxe staple beloved by les femmes françaises, here are the best creams to stock up on now.

“I go through phases with all of my products, but lately I have been using Sisley Comfort Extrême Hand Cream. I apply it to my hands, wrists, and even nails. It contains the most luxurious ingredients [such as sunflower oil and guava extracts] that leave my hands feeling fabulous!”

“I don’t go anywhere without my favorite hand cream, Extra by Bobbi Brown. The texture is silky, the smell delicious, and it dries fast for quick application and ring re-stacking.”

“I use my hands a lot at the atelier when I create new collections, and while I try not to hurt them with the tools, it isn’t easy. My skin is super dry, too, so I use as much Neutrogena lotion as I can, and I mix it with Byredo Hand Cream, which smells like heaven. For my nails, I like them nude and short or sometimes in a red Chanel, like number 500 [Rouge Essentiel].”

“I am a bit persnickety when it comes to keeping my hands looking nice! I always have my nails painted, which [helps] stop me from biting them, and I use hand lotion and cuticle oil religiously. My current favorites: J. Hannah Polish in Miso, La Mer The Hand Treatment, and Uka Nail Oil in scent 24:45—it is relaxing and the packaging is very luxurious.”

“My favorite hand cream is from Natura Brasil. It has the best smell ever [of the Castanha nut]! I got it as a gift from a Brazilian friend and need to order it again.”
