- Use moisturizing hand sanitizer
Choose a hand sanitizer that has moisturizer. Alcohol can be very drying so be sure the sanitizer you choose has moisturizers. A natural sanitizer is best since you use it often and it soaks into your skin.
DIY sanitizers are too risky. It’s best to purchase from a reputable brand so it’s made safely and correctly.
Don’t forget to wear gloves to protect your hands while gardening, in cold weather, or any project that can scrape, dry, or beat up your lovely hands.

- Use too little
