If you’ve been religiously washing your hands with soap and sanitising them in between washes as part of your personal hygiene routine, good on you. But don’t forget to moisturise your hands because they can get seriously dry after bouts of washing and sanitising. (FYI: Most hand sanitisers contain at least 70 per cent alcohol, and we know how dehydrating alcohol can be.)
To prevent those nail-splitting and skin-flaking situations, your best bet is to have hand creams on standby – in your bag, on your work desk, and on your beauty counter – so you can moisturise wherever you are. Here are our favourites.
