Hand sanitizer is hugely popular right now, and with good reason: It can help get rid of a slew of germs, including SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. But using hand sanitizer regularly can be tough on your skin.

"Hand sanitizer contains ingredients that are antibacterial and antiviral, but are also drying," Dr. Gary Goldenberg, assistant clinical professor of dermatology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City, tells Yahoo Life.

While the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends using soap and water to clean your hands, the organization also says that an alcohol-based hand sanitizer is a good substitute when you don't have ready access them. If you're constantly on the go, though, that can lead to lot of hand sanitizer use—and dry hands.

That's where moisturizing comes in. "Moisturizer can help repair damaged skin after hand sanitizer use," Goldenberg says. He recommends applying hand sanitizer, waiting a few minutes, and then adding moisturizer to your hands.

Don't feel like toting around a bottle of lotion along with your hand sanitizer? There's a hack for that, and it's pretty genius.

Dermaglove has a two-in-one sanitizer and lotion that cleans and moisturizes your hands at once. It's called Dermaglove Hand Science Repair Lotion and Sanitizer and it features 70 percent ethanol, exceeding the CDC's recommendation that hand sanitizers contain at least 60 percent alcohol.

Right now, you can score two eight-ounce bottles of this moisturizing sanitizer at QVC for just $19 (was $40). Don’t feel like spending $19 this second? QVC lets you pay in interest-free installments of $6 every month, for three months.

This sanitizer-lotion hybrid is powerful: It wipes out 99.9 percent of bacteria and germs on your hands. Just squirt it on, rub your hands together for about 20 seconds, and you're good to go. Another huge perk: It has a clean, fresh scent, unlike plenty of other hand sanitizers.

People are pretty impressed in the reviews. "This stuff is magic! I rarely write reviews, but this product is worth it," a five-star fan wrote. "I have been obsessively washing my hands raw, and this product has been a game changer. It is restorative AND sanitizing." Another user said that the smell is "amazing," adding, "my hands are no longer cracked or bleeding from the continuous use of hand sanitizer."

Just a heads up: This sale won't last. Snatch it up now before it sells out.
