10 Unexpected Times You Should NOT Use Hand Sanitizer
#5: You’re grocery shopping
For most of us, going to the supermarket is one of the riskiest activities in terms of COVID-19 exposure. Public health authorities have been recommending sanitizing your hands after each shopping session, which is great advice (not only against COVID-19, but also other germs and pesticides found on fruits, veggies and other products).
However, using hand sanitizer multiple times while in the grocery store might actually increase your skin sensitivity and dryness.
As a rule of thumb, it’s advisable that you sanitize before entering the grocery shop and right after finishing your session. If you’re still concerned about exposure, you can wear special gloves to make sure you don’t come in contact with any viruses.
