Can You Still Apply Your Skincare Products with Your Hands?

With all the advice about not touching your face you might wonder can I still apply skincare products with my hands?

The simple answer is, yes. You can still use your hands to touch your face and apply skincare products as long as you thoroughly wash your hands first. That means with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Make sure to wash between your fingers, under your nails, and don't forget your thumbs. Also be sure that you keep your skincare products' pumps, lids, bottles, etc. clean. You can read the CDC's guidelines for hand washing here to get all the specifics. 

Once you throughly washed your hand feel free to get your skincare routine going. You can even encourage lymphatic drainage and improved wellness with a little facial massage which we wrote about here.
