COVID-19 And The Importance Of Hand Sanitizers
Just a few months after COVID-19 was reported, WHO declared it as a pandemic considering the rapid pace with which it spread. The prevention guidelines suggested by WHO emphasizes social distancing and hand wash.
COVID-19 is caused by the SARS CoV-2 virus that spreads from person to person. The virus may live up to two days on surfaces and if you happen to touch infected surfaces and touch your eyes, nose, or mouth, the virus might enter your body. This explains why washing your hands at regular intervals is very important.

Hand sanitizers are made of alcohol. Sanitizers that have alcohol percentages of more than 60 percent might make your skin dry if you hand wash frequently. CBD has hydrating properties indicating that using CBD infused hand sanitizer will help prevent drying up of skin.
Tips For Preventing Drying Up Of Skin
Here are some tips recommended by dermatologists to prevent the drying up of skin due to frequent use of hand sanitizer or soap:
Use Hand Cream
If you are washing your hands with soap (or hand wash solution), dry it with a towel but by leaving some water. Apply hand cream while the hands are still damp.
It is advisable to go for hand creams that contain mineral oil or petrolatum. “Dye-free” or “fragrance-free” hand creams are safer on the skin than the ones that contain perfume and dyes.
