👋 5 surefire ways to make covid protection less damaging on your hands — #TopTipTuesday : 🌴 1) MONOLAURIN HAND SANITIZER Try Kid Gloves or Id Monolaurin Gel. While some alcohol is present for mixing, it’s a lot less than in sanitizers that rely on 70% alcohol for disinfection. Monolaurin is a moisturizing lipid antimicrobial. 🧴 2) BAR THE BAR SOAP … … their high pH is denaturing skin. Switch to liquid or cream cleansers like Superwash, Clark Wash, Coo & Clean, or even a SuperSkin Facial Cleanser for hand washing! 🥥 3) VCO-VER & OVER AGAIN The European Task Force on Contact Dermatitis statement on coronavirus disease-19 (COVID-19) outbreak and the risk of adverse cutaneous reactions states: “It is recommendable to protect the hands with a fragrance-free, lighter moisturizing lotion during the day after each handwashing procedure and a fragrance-free, lipid-rich moisturizer before bedtime.” Try Know-It-Oil or Oil’s Well virgin coconut oil. VCO is an unparalleled emollient (its fatty acids are native to skin) that also provides barrier repair and is another clinically-proven antimicrobial lipid. Rub it all over your hands (and even in your nostrils!) after each hand wash, throughout the day, and at bedtime. ❤️🩹 4) NEED HEALING? If your hands are very irritated, layer: use Essence or Mommycoddling Lotion then VCO. For an intensive treatment: at night, apply Red Better Calm-The-Heck-Down Balm followed by Boo-Boo Balm. Wrap in a soft, white cloth or cling wrap and leave on overnight. 😇 5) The European Task Force on Contact Dermatitis statement also suggests “using soap without fragrance and preservatives without or a low sensitizing potential.” Steering clear of common allergens goes a long way towards saving your skin. #skingenious #hypoallergenic #skincare #coconut #monolaurin #coconutoil #SavingTheWorldsSkin Get personalized care for your hand dermatitis at VMV Skin Research Centre+Clinics !
