The hand sanitizer is a kind of antiseptic, it temporarily takes the place of handwash or soap and water in the course of a fast paced day for instance but its uses transcends the basic functions it performs.

We were able to use them in these beauty ways:

1. Works as a primer

Hand sanitizer can be used as a primer, they work when applied just before the foundation, because they are drying the help seal in oil and keep make-up in place a little longer. However some people can be irritated by the alcohol it contains if you sense a funny reaction do discontinue use.

 2. For cleaning makeup brushes.

Hand sanitizer works great for removing makeup from brushes. Simply squeeze a pump or two on tissue or cotton balls and wipe away excess makeup. It tends to dry out fast and you can get to use the brushes back almost immiediately.

 3. Great for removing makeup stains.

Hand sanitizer works perfectly to remove make-up stains from clothes from coffee stains to makeup and more, just apply a generous amount of sanitizer over the stains let it soak in and wipe away stains.

4. Great for cleaning your mobile phone.

Mobile phones are easily loaded with bacteria as they gather dirts and grease with everyday use which can cause skin breakout, everyday a dab of hand sanitizer can help clean the keypads for instance and wipe away any dirt or grime/bacteria that wants to breed on there.

5. Applying it directly on a pimple.

Hand sanitizer works perfect to dry up breakouts/pimple that may pop on on certain areas of the face because they contain alcohol that instantly dries it up. Please note that you are snot supposed to use it all over the face or make it a skincare routine, it gets too harsh for the skin.

6. Great as emergency deodorant.

Hand sanitizer work brilliantly as deodorant, when you sense a funny odour usually as a result of sweats during the course of the day and need a touch and you can't find your deo spray, a little dab of sanitizer here and there eliminates funny odour.
