UNSUNG HERO AT LONDON FASHION WEEK It seems fitting that a hand cream that was developed in the fashion industry and created in a couturier's studio, has become an unlikely backstage hero at London Fashion Week. Spotted backstage at Nicholas Kirkwood, Jasper Conran, TOPSHOP Unique and OSMAN, this bowl of hand creams was there for the teams of hard-working models, make-up artists and hairdressers, so they could give their hands some much needed TLC. Seams Hand Cream is one of the most nourishing treats for hands you will ever find. The tube is deceptive - with simple lettering on a plain white background, but the ingredients give it its star quality. It is a clever lend of Shea butter, Macadamia nut oil, Garden cress, Keratin, Fragonia and Glycerine. I have used this myself - in fact, it's the current hand cream of choice in my bedside table drawer - and it's one of the best I've tried.

WHITE NOW By Sarah Barclay SEAMS HAND CREAM Originally created to keep the hands of seamstresses in a couturier's studio in top condition, contains natural ingredients and absorbs super quickly.
I am extremely conscious about my face and hands - especially my hands. A face may launch a thousand ships but if your hands look as if you've washed a thousand ships you're on a hiding to nowhere. This non-greasy cream was originally created for a fashion designer's studio and is touch safe when handling fabric. My hands are incredibly soft and it doesn't matter if I touch my clothes after applying it, there is no residue.
Seams is featured as one of Hello's favourite hand creams.
GLUM MUMS Sore chapped mummy hands! Trying to make sure our hands are constantly germ free when touching our newborn, yet changing nappies and washing bottles every 2 seconds with no time to don the gloves! When my daughter was first born my hands were almost raw. I decided to test out loads of hand creams to see if any of them could heal my chapped hands. Here are the top results: SEAMS Hand Cream originally designed for seamstresses at fashion shows to ensure smooth skin on the fabrics, this hand treatment is designed to be intense and restorative and deliver long lasting hydration. The light non-greasy formula absorbs fast and will leave no residue on baby. Fragonia Oil gives anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial protection, Shea butter protects and nourishes. Macadamia Nut Oil improves suppleness and softens, Garden Cress evens skin tone and fades and prevents age spots. Keratin strengthens nails, and glycerine helps heal burns, bites and cuts. This cream smells lovely and does the job it claims to. Nice consistency, medium thick but not greasy. Really moisturising on chapped hands. Handbag friendly tube.
FASHION PRO Seams was created by Karen J Gerrard, who needed an affordable hand cream while at fashion college (hands take quite a weathering in fashion design). It has antibacterial properties, helps strengthen nails and cuticles and soothes minor skin irritations.

Not only will the cream moisturise, strengthen and protect your skin and nails, but the non-greasy formula will also help heal and soothe cold-weather-induced skin irritations. No wonder this little tube is a backstage staple for so many designers and it could be yours for under £10! Jess Edwards, lifestyle editor Click here
