GREAT RESULTS!
… I went through an 8 month treatment (for acne) and couldn't be happier with my results! I haven't had a blemish in over 6 months. My life is so much easier now that I am not always worrying about breakouts. If I had know going to the dermatologist would give me these results, I would have gone so much sooner!”

HANDWASHING, MOISTURIZER & THE VIRUS

Tips for Safe & Healthy Hands

Hand washing is critical to help stop the spread of the coronavirus. However, a side effect of frequent handwashing is dry skin that can itch, flake and crack, causing wounds that can allow the entry of bacteria and other germs. Moisturizing your hands after washing is very important step.

  • Wash your hands using lukewarm water for at least 20 seconds. Make sure to thoroughly soap between your fingers and around your nails.
  • Moisturize immediately after washing -- using lotion while your hands are slightly damp will help lock in the moisture.
  • When soap and water are not available, use hand sanitizer. The CDC recommends a sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol to kill germs. Since these can be drying, it is especially important to use a moisturizer afterward. With sanitizer; however, be sure that your hands are completely dry before applying the moisturizer.
  • Using a moisturizer after washing or sanitizing your hands does not negate the effects.
