02 Sep The Hand Hygiene Heroes to Keep in Your Home
There was a time that carrying a mini hand sanitiser with me everywhere I went and an extra set of disinfecting wipes in my carry on seemed excessive. I’m no germaphobe but you can’t quite match that clean hand feeling when you’re out and about.
Of course, constant hand-washing and sanitising after every single thing you touch has become commonplace in our 2020 lives. And while it may be annoying to be thinking about washing your hands 24/7, we don’t see any reason why you can’t add a little luxury to those 100 hand-washing moments every day.
We’ve rounded up the hand washes, sanitisers and creams that will not only protect your hands and your health, but look great as they sit at every sink in your home. These favourites have been thoroughly tested to ensure they won’t leave your hands feeling dry, tight or flaking. Instead, they’re a one-way street to soft, smooth and fantastic smelling hands that are free from bacteria. And you don’t have to sacrifice your décor.
If a heavenly scent reminiscent of a spa in a lush rainforest is what you like in your hand care, you’ll find it in Grown Alchemist. Beyond the lasting scent, both the hand wash and creams are nourishing and soothing with hydrating powers that really last, sans any greasiness. The sanitiser is made with 70% Ethyl Alcohol with hyaluronan and antioxidants to prevent your hands from drying out. It doesn’t feel stripping at all and smells fresh yet subtle.
With 60% alcohol and a line-up of natural antibacterial and barrier restoring ingredients, this sanitiser was made for frequent use. The gel dries fast and smells fresh leaving your hands feeling soft and clean. The Softening Hand Wash has a beautiful rose scent and takes hydration that one step further with nourishing botanical extracts that protect your hands and prevent that dry and tight feeling.
Being stuck inside for months on end isn’t fun for anybody so allow this triple threat from Glasshouse to transport you to far off places. The hand duo contains a gentle soap and nourishing cream with a fun and tropical scent. Both are super effective and great for all skin types, even sensitive and overworked hands. The 65% alcohol sanitiser has a really pleasant seaside scent that’s fresh and doesn’t smell, or feel, at all harsh.
Add a little bit of that freshly baked cinnamon scroll aroma to your life. Both the hand wash and lotion from The Aromatherapy Co have a delicious scent and nourishing formulas that are great for your hands. Through wash after wash they keep your hands clean and hydrated and the creaming lotion leaves no residue or stickiness allowing you to quickly get on with your day.
