Will hand Sanitizers result in Dry Skin?

The connection between our hands and the spread of respiratory viruses

We are still in the Flu Season and to compound matters the world is experiencing a catastrophic respiratory Corona Virus called Covid-19.

Respiratory viruses are spread from person to person in various ways namely:

  • Touching surfaces previously touched by an individual who is ill with the virus
  • Caring for an individual who has the virus
  • Being in close proximity to an infected person who is coughing and sneezing without the proper hygiene

As we learn more about this new Corona virus the messages have been going out about hand washing, cough and sneeze etiquette, social distancing and wearing a face mask.

Clean hands save lives

Clean hands save lives and there are two sure ways to keep your hands clean i.e.

  • Washing with soap and water
  • Cleaning hands with an alcohol based hand sanitizer

The preferred way to keep hands clean is of course washing with soap and water. Soap breaks down the fatty coating around the virus and the virus dies. Water and soap are not always available and so an alcohol based hand sanitizer achieves the same germicidal action. The hand sanitizer should have at least 60% alcohol.

Frequent hand washing with soap dries the natural moisture from the skin. Similarly frequent use of an alcohol based hand sanitizer removes the natural moisture from the skin which leaves the skin dry over time.
