Major acne skin symptoms

hi i use hand sanitiser on my face for acne and it helps. i don t use just any hand sanitiser, i use the ones with added moisturisers ( aloe vera and vitamin E) and I only use a pea size (maybe abit more at times) once a day with my daliy routine. in the morning i wash my face with warm/hottish water and a cloth, pat dry. then apply a pea size amount of the hand sanitiser. at night i wash my face with warm water and a cloth. then apply my night mosituriser cream. I tried other things but they dont work as well as this. I was just wanting to know am i doing any perment harm to my skin? im 18 if that makes difference?

Welcome to Healthcare Magic Forum
Hand sanitizers contain certain chemicals ( ex- ethyl alcohol, triclosan etc) which have a number of sideeffects. Most commonly dryness, itching , sensitivity of skin, allergies, suppression of thyroid hormones.)

Sanitizer are usefull for washing hands , as we touch a million contaminated articles & surfaces in a day. Face does not need a sanitizer & facial skin is delicate then that of hands.
Acne in your age is natural. And you may use products suitable of delicate skin of face, ONLY.
