Is Using Rubbing Alcohol On Skin Safe?

According to  Dr. Ajay Rana,  "Using rubbing alcohol on the skin might help in killing harmdul microbes and bacteria. But one should not opt for their long-term use especially for people with sensitive skin. It will make your skin supremely dry, tight,with flaky skin. It is worse if someone has acne as your sebaceous glands would start to release excess oil to combat dryness that eleads to redness and unintentional acne breakouts."

If you have alcohol at home, you must try these masks out. Be careful about the quantity as these may irritate the skin and cause other skin problems.
