Thanks to the New Normal, we are now constantly applying hand sanitisers before any activity. Whether it’s going to work or entering the supermarket, shops and restaurants, it seems there’s no end to the amount of hand sanitiser we use. While this is important to keep Covid-19 at bay, it also takes a toll on our skin.
Take a look at your hands now and you’ll be surprised at how dry and aged they appear. The instant remedy to this is a good, super-emolient hand cream. It has become an absolute necessity and we’ve picked FIVE of the very best at Suria KLCC.
