Simple: I don't use disinfectant.

Tom
Same here, gave up on that quickly. Only when I enter a grocery store. And the other day when I did the "do-it-yourself-at-home" test for the first time.

That bottle will be something to bequest.

Got enough problems with dry skin as it is. Willl try that olive oil tip someone gave.

And don't you feel guilty?
Not usually - about anything!

I like the really strong disinfectant. Top tip - disinfect your hands, then put the mask on. Float around the rest of the day...

But she seems to have missed the bit where the chances of getting the virus from a surface is 1 in 10,000..
You can stop sanitising people. Be like Tom!
When the strict work hygiene protocole allows, bowlie. Gotta think about other people most times, not my hands.

We will be like Tom later, fo sho.

Re: Desinfectant drying hands. What do you do?

For at night:
Weleda Skin Food
https://www.nu3.ch/products/weleda-h...yABEgKZ1_D_BwE
Apparently there is also a "Weleda Skin Food Light", presumably something that permeates more quickly, but the real thing is good, just really good.

During the day:
Weleda fast absorbing hand cream

Floating is needed through the official stops we have to pass through and redesinfect, million times. Cellar looks good.

I found this great small oil bottle though, I can carry it with me and keep hands sufficiently oilly:

I just don't go out. It's safe and warm in my cellar.

I use Neutrogena Norwegian formula.
If my hands are dry, I use used castor oil from my race bike, smells nice!

Smells nice? As far as I know castor oil is usually used for medical purposes..

I don't know if anyone has mentioned L' Occitane en Provence, they also have fabulous stuff. I love their shops. Last I used Karité Handcreme and it was pretty good.

I love their stuff too. I have a collection of their hand creams, they really handy for carrying in my bag as they’re quite small.

Mkay and?

Oil is oil. Although I can't put olive oil on my hands and not think of cooking, so prefer neutral whatever.

My hands are better but that might be the holidays..

I love the smell their karité hand-cream and used to buy it, but have since discovered Le Petit Marseillais; their reparation hand-cream has both karitié butter and bees wax, smells as good as L'occitane's version..... and is ~10th the price!
I buy it in France, but the Migros in Switzerland also sell the range.
