Hand in Hand - Using Sanitizer and Cream Together

Hand in Hand - Using Sanitizer and Cream Together

Hand sanitizer has become a crucial part of our daily lives in the past few years. With the ongoing pandemic, hand hygiene has become more important than ever. However, frequent use of hand sanitizers can leave our hands dry and cracked. This is where hand cream comes in - it can help to keep our hands moisturized and healthy.  Let’s explore how to use hand sanitizer and hand cream together effectively.


Step 1: Cleanse your hands with hand sanitizer

The first step in using hand sanitizer and hand cream together is to clean your hands with hand sanitizer. When using hand sanitizer, apply enough to cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together for at least 20 seconds until they are dry.


Step 2: Apply hand cream

Once your hands are dry from the hand sanitizer, it’s time to apply hand cream. Apply a pea-sized amount of hand cream to the back of one hand, and then rub both hands together to distribute the cream evenly. Pay special attention to the areas around your nails and cuticles, which can become dry and cracked from frequent hand washing and sanitizer use.


Step 3: Reapply hand cream as needed

Depending on the severity of dryness, you may need to reapply hand cream throughout the day. It’s a good idea to keep a small tube of hand cream with you, so you can apply it whenever your hands start to feel dry. Remember to always apply hand cream after using hand sanitizer, as the alcohol in hand sanitizer can strip your skin of its natural oils and cause dryness.


Tips for using hand sanitizer and hand cream together:

Look for a hand sanitizer that contains moisturizing ingredients like aloe vera or glycerin to help prevent dryness.

Choose a hand cream that is non-greasy and absorbs quickly, so you can use it throughout the day without leaving residue on surfaces or objects.

If you have sensitive skin, look for a hand sanitizer and hand cream that are fragrance-free and hypoallergenic.

Don’t forget to apply hand cream before bed to allow it to fully absorb into your skin overnight.

Taking care of our hands has never been more important than. Using hand sanitizer and hand cream together can help us maintain good hand hygiene while also keeping our hands moisturized and healthy.
