Hand sanitizer destroyed my skin – but this cream comes to the rescue
Since being vaccinated, I have started to feel more comfortable going back to eating out at restaurants, taking the train (mainly during off-peak hours), and taking a short flight if necessary. However, one thing that hasn’t changed is the fact that I have wipes and all types of disinfectant on hand.
That said, my hands have taken a hit since March 2020 – and it’s not pretty.
I’m definitely the type to always have a hand cream on the deck, but with the way my skin is set up right now, I needed something less watery and more nourishing.
Lucky for me, I found it.

When I first tried this hand cream I was not at all surprised that it did the job (as all of Dr. Barbara Sturm’s products do). To work its magic, this thick, ultra-rich cream uses a ceramide complex to help protect and strengthen your skin barrier, while vitamin E and other antioxidants help prevent free radical damage.
When it comes to actually hydrating the skin, Aloe, Hyaluronic Acid, and Prickly Pear work together to replenish moisture. And if you are looking for the anti-aging ingredient, daisy flower extract also helps to even out skin tone.

Whenever I disinfect my hands with an alcohol-based cleanser, I always make sure to apply this cream right after and my skin appreciates it.
Also, don’t say it to my hands, but I also use it on my arms, feet, and any other part of the body that needs a little extra moisture whenever I’m on the go.
Good to Go is the section where we share the beauty products without which we cannot travel. But while travel is (sort of still) irrelevant, we’ll focus on products that make us feel good while waiting. This month why am I obsessed with Dr. Barbara Sturm Super Anti-Aging Hand Cream.
