Hand Sanitizer Can Decrease Disease Bacteria on the Skin Reports Skin Health Researcher Sharon Kleyne
Date:7/12/2013

Grants Pass, OR (PRWEB) July 12, 2013

Hand sanitizers have become extremely popular and can be an effective proactive tool in decreasing the presence of disease bacteria on the skin, reports Sharon Kleyne. The water and skin health researcher cautions that to obtain maximum benefit, the product must be applied correctly. To correctly apply hand sanitizer, one must first know how the product works and what its limitations are.

Sharon Kleyne is Founder of Bio-Logic Aqua Research and host of the Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water® radio show on Voice American and Apple iTunes.

Kleyne offers the following education to assist the public in obtaining maximum proactive benefit from hand sanitizers:

Hand sanitizers, according to Kleyne, kill 99.9% of bacteria, viruses and fungi, including many that cause diseases. The product also kills many harmless bacteria and viruses. Although a good hand sanitizer can kill flu and cold viruses on contact, the flu viruses is spread by the hands.

The active ingredient in most hand sanitizers is alcohol and the products are most effective when the alcohol content is at least 60%. Although alcohol is drying and dehydrating to the skin of the hands, most soap is even more dehydrating. Whether from soap or hand sanitizer, skin dehydration should be avoided. Good skin hydration, with adequate water content, can increase resistance to certain bacterial and viral infections, and can also help prevent sunburn.

When using hand sanitizer frequently, Kleyne suggests applying a 100% water mist occasionally to the back of the hands and fingers – Nature’s Mist® Face of the Water® – and then sealing in the newly applied skin water with a hand lotion.

Soap and water does not kill bacteria and viruses but merely washes them off your hands. Soap leaves a dehydrating residue if not rinsed adequately with water. Sharon Kleyne also recommends rinsing off the hand sanitizer with water to remove any dehydrating alcohol residue. Hand sanitizers work only during the first 10 to 15 seconds so rinsing will not impede their effectiveness.

Hand sanitizers are extremely flammable. A higher alcohol content increases effectiveness but also increases flammability.

When applying hand sanitizer, Kleyne reports, use enough to rub on all surfaces for 10 to 15 seconds, including between the fingers, the back of the fingers, the back of the hands and the wrists. Remove jewelry. Rub until dry.

Above all, Kleyne emphasizes, hand sanitizers should be used in addition to, rather than instead of other disease prevention measures such as frequent hand washing, avoidance of high risk situations, drinking plenty of water, daily bathing, maintaining good skin health, eating a proper, nutritious diet and getting adequate exercise.
