Antibacterial hand gel is in my opinion one of the best inventions. There is always time and the possibility of washing your hands, and traveling especially by public transport is advisable. At present, during a coronavirus outbreak, this is something you should have at home to follow hygiene rules even more.
There is always an antibacterial gel in my purse, because I often travel by public transport, which unfortunately is not very clean (maybe it has changed a bit now, but it's a pity that an epidemic was needed to take care of the basics of cleanliness). Many studies indicate that public transport, especially seating, is the largest bacterial habitat. It is not difficult to agree with this, because hundreds or even thousands of people use the means of transport every day, who do not know where they had their hands before.
Unfortunately, many people still do not wash their hands after using the toilet, so it's better to be safe when cold. There are a lot of bacteria around us, and even a moment of inattention can lead to many diseases. Especially now you have to be very careful. It is still not known exactly how coronavirus is transmitted (I have the impression that everything related to this virus is only guesses), and there is still no vaccine for the virus that decimates the population on Earth. Even simply rubbing the eyes with a hand that touched something that previously touched the sick person can lead to infection.
Bath & Body Works antibacterial hand gel
I've been looking for a long time antibacterial gel that does not dry hands. Until now, everyone who used used made the hands dry after use, and after each use of the gel it was necessary to use a moisturizing cream.
Antibacterial gels came with the help Bath & Body works. Gels not only do not dry the skin, in addition they smell great and contain 68% alcohol. My favorite fragrance is 'Paris'. The only thing that bothers me is having a glitter that stays on the skin (and not only because I have the impression that this glitter is everywhere). Fortunately, the version of "unicorn water" came out, which has neither glitter nor blue balls (which I do not understand to this day - what are they for?).
In my opinion, it is worth using antibacterial gels, especially when traveling, and also when it is not possible to wash your hands. It is certainly to some extent protection against various types of diseases. Currently, it is worth having such a gel at home and use it additionally after washing your hands, even when you follow the rules and do not leave the house. This is an additional form of protection against a very dangerous virus for which there is still no vaccine.
Do you use antibacterial gels? What gels do you like best?
