Best Bet: CLEAN’s Anti-Bacterial Hand Cream


From germ-ridden subway poles to grimy bike handlebars, CLEAN's new Anti-Bacterial Moisturizing Hand Cream is a New Yorker's godsend. Unlike the traditional hand sanitizers, which tend to dry out skin in the process, this alcohol-free cream hydrates like a regular lotion. And while antibacterial gels can have that lingering medicinal smell, CLEAN's cream is unscented (which makes it great for slathering on before eating). The balm's active ingredient, benzethonium chloride, kills 99.9 percent of germs and lasts up to four hours, so you'll be continuously covered whether you're boarding a flight or making friends at the dog park.

CLEAN Anti-Bacterial Moisturizing Hand Cream, $10 at Sephora or online.
