It's no news that hydroalcoholic gel has become a part of our lives and we can't go anywhere without having a small bottle in our purse or pockets ... just in case. It is perfect for disinfecting hands when we do not have access to soap and water after touching different objects, money, etc. But, Can it affect our skin?
The answer is YES, can dry out the skin and, when combined with sunlight, cause skin burns or irritation.
That doesn't mean you should stop using it ... you just need to look for gels enriched with emollients that condition the skin and prevent dryness. And, of course, you should use hand care creams as often as possible.
Hydroalcoholic gels containing Panthenol protect and hydrate the skin. In addition, they help to regenerate the tissue and maintain an adequate level of moisture in the lower layers of the skin.
Let me give you an example of a gel that perfectly disinfects and at the same time protects your skin: the Hydroalcoholic Gel with Passion Fruit from CosmeticsTenerife. It contains marshmallow root extract, D-panthenol / provitamin B5, and glycerin, which also makes it perfect for sensitive skin. The result: hydrated, clean and healthy hands.
As for the hand creamsTry to make them part of your beauty routine, because the skin of your hands is as important as the skin of your face.
Do you know that the skin on our hands is actually one of the first places where we show signs of aging? With the hand cream, you can increase your moisture levels and skin elasticity, while fighting pigmentation, dehydration and premature wrinkles. Choose an ultra-hydrating product that can restore the skin barrier and soften dry skin.
In conclusion, a hydroalcoholic gel helps us prevent COVID-19 infection and also a good hand cream helps us prevent the skin on our hands from being damaged.
Use them together and your hands will thank you!
