Why use hand sanitizer when you can just use soap. Plus, as said before, sanitizer has alcohol and harsh ingredients in it, which i know most people don't wanna be putting on there face. I've never tried it, but i would suggest not to.

If my hands are particularly dirty, I will wash them with hand soap before doing my regimen. Otherwise, I figure my hands and face get clean together.

Ditto.

And as for people talking about the ingredient in hand sanitizer, well its not like he is applying that directly to the face. It get absorbed into the hands, any transfer of sanitizer that ends up on your face is not even worth talking about its so minimal.

I think hand sanitizer is a bad idea in the long run if it's the anti-batercial kind. Eventually the bacteria on your hands will grow immune to it. Try and use soap whenever possible.

Hand sanitizer is meant to be used when there is no soap and water around, not as a replacement. Soap and water actually do better at killing some germs than hand sanitizer, and you aren't stuck with the alcohol/chemicals staying on your hands.
