There’s no doubt that these are strange times we are living in, and not just because everyone seems to be taking handwashing more seriously than ever!
Washing your hands is the best defense against stopping the spread of COVID-19, more on that a little later on, but we understand that your hands may be feeling dry and in desperate need of a little love and hydration!
Many people have the misconception that antibacterial soaps are needed to kill COVID-19, should it get onto your hands, but this is a virus not bacteria we are talking about so antibacterial soaps are really not necessary.
Good ol’ soap and water is all you need, but many soaps are incredibly drying due to nasty synthetics. Why not opt for an all natural product that will infuse your hands with soothing, nourishing ingredients while it helps to wash any germs and viruses away.
Why regular hand washing with soap is so important
The good news is that due to the slightly acidic nature of your skin, coronavirus can’t enter your bloodstream through your skin. However, it can sit on your skin and then enter your body via your mouth, nose or even your eyes so keeping your hands clean is more important than ever at the moment!
According to National Geographic:
“Soap works so effectively because its chemistry pries open the coronavirus’s exterior envelope and cause it to degrade. These soap molecules then trap tiny fragments of the virus, which are washed away in water. Hand sanitizers work similarly by busting apart the proteins contained in a virus.”
That is very comforting to know!
Just make sure you are washing your hands correctly.
