With the coronavirus disease officially deemed a pandemic by the World Health Organization, now’s the time to up your hand washing game (at least 20 seconds people!). That’s why we rounded up the best moisturizing hand wash to help keep you healthy but also your hands from feeling like sandpaper. According to the CDC, one of the best ways to keep you and your family sick at any time of the year is to wash your hands regularly and use hand sanitizer when you can’t get to soap and water. This removes both germs and the natural oils on your hands so they might not be feeling so great right now.
That doesn’t mean you get to get to skip washing your hands. Instead, switch to one of these washes that contain hydrators such as Murumuru butter, honey, coconut milk and essential oils. They smell great, too. We’re talking yummy scents like mint and rose that will have you looking forward to washing your hands for the 100th time today.
The best part about these hand wash picks? They aren’t sold out—just yet. Pick up a bottle or two for each bathroom in your home to make sure you’re covered in case the shelves get any more empty. It’ll keep you from grabbing any old soap that will work to kill 99 percent of germs but won’t smell or feel so great. It’s most important that we all stay healthy but in the meantime, keep your hands feeling soft and comfortable, as well. Shop some of our favorite moisturizing hand washes, below.
