Hand lotion things - May 29th 2009, 01:50 PM

I've been using these hygeine gel things, which kill the bacteria.

Anyhow, will it cause me any problems if I use often, I like the clean feeling even if it does smell like I've doused myself in vodka for 2-3 mins. :P

Any alcohol-based product (like hand sanitizers) will dry out your skin. Try not to use it too often. You can find hand sanitizers that have moisturizers in them, which I would recommend if you notice that your hands are getting drier.

agreeing with molly it will only dry out your hands, any festival or camping trip or such likes that has no running water you use those for the whole time...just if you get nice smelling ones (i have razzle dazzle blue berry) don't use those when drunk and drinking it gets ever so confusing lol

Yep. When you work at Taco Bell, and you have to wash your hands constantly, you'll know what that means.

A good link for possible dangers of using hand sanitizer. Don't let the dangers make you paranoid. Even soap and water has its risks. Just be aware.

It could pose problems. I say this because you know how manufacturers boast on how their hand sanitizer kills 99.9% of bacteria or some other ridiculously high number? Well this also includes the good bacteria that our body need, so don't go over board. The old fashion way of soap and water is still the best way to go.(:

Re: Hand lotion things - June 4th 2009, 03:50 AM

While people say the gel causes dry skin, it works as a moisturizer for my hands. If my hands are dry, I reach for the hand sanitizer and I'm good, I refuse to use lotion at all. I keep a bottle in my locker at school, seeing as the bathrooms are more than likely filthy and I feel dirty even after washing my hands.

Just don't use it twenty times a day, don't put it on any cuts or scabs [hurt like a bitch, probably not the best for them] and you should be fine.


Every time I try to give up, a little voice called hope says "one more try"
