Experts Reveal their Skincare Regimen

How’s your skincare routine? Are you still wondering whether you should apply serum or toner first? Skincare can be confusing, but every step counts! There’s no sense in having a routine if the products don’t have the chance to penetrate your skin and work effectively.

Is Your Hand Sanitizer Drying Out Your Skin or Making it Bleed?

When you think about hand sanitizer, you might think of harsh chemical scents or fragrances, and how it leaves your skin dry and irritated. If you’ve been using it more often lately, it can even cause your skin to crack and bleed. The experts at Doctor D. Schwab want to change the way you think of hand sanitizer forever. They created a plant based, moisturizing hand sanitizer with a gentle, pleasant scent, so you can disinfect effectively without sacrificing soft hands.
With the COVID-19 outbreak among us, it’s important to keep yourself as protected and clean as possible. Doctors recommend washing your hands for 20 seconds (or singing the happy birthday song twice) to thoroughly cleanse them. While traditional hand washing is always the preferred method to keep your hands germ, virus, and bacteria free, there isn’t always a sink nearby. If you’re on the go, or if you desire extra protection, your own personal hand sanitizer comes in handy.
While most hand sanitizers strip your skin, le…
