Influenza. Coronavirus. The common cold! This year’s “sickness season” has been especially difficult, particularly the current spread of COVID-19.
Diseases each have their own method of spreading but one thing is agreed upon: washing your hands is one of the best and easiest things you can do to keep yourself healthy.
We hope you practice good hand washing etiquette year-round, but if you need to brush up on the proper way to wash hands check out this handy-dandy visual:
One of the most important pieces of information comes at the very end—hand washing should take 15-30 seconds! Don’t splash-and-dash…Give your hands the time they need to be cleansed.
Another important piece of information is absent from this hygiene PSA: dry your hands thoroughly with a clean towel! Germs stick better to wet hands, so be sure to dry them off before moving on to your next task.
Do you feel like washing your hands for 15-30 seconds actually feels like an eternity? Even though we’re adults who “should” be able to handle the patience required to clean our hands, there are ways to pass the time. You can pray if you’re so inclined, or practice a few minutes of gratitude. Or you can sing karaoke!
An unfortunate side effect of all this hand washing is dry, uncomfortable hands. Your skin may begin feeling tight, rough, flaky and just plain uncomfortable. One way to combat this is to stay hydrated and use high-quality soap. Another is to use ATOPALM Moisturizing Hand Treatment.
Featured in Vogue magazine, ATOPALM Moisturizing Hand Treatment is the most comforting and healing hand treatment you’ll ever use. We don’t describe it as hand lotion because it’s so much more than that!
It helps soothe eczema, repair dry and damaged skin, and prevent future issues by restoring and supporting the skin’s natural barrier. On a day-to-day level, it keeps hands comfortable after multiple hand washings, not to mention the protection it provides against cold weather-related issues!
Moisturizing Hand Treatment is the answer for your dry hands. After washing for 15-30 seconds and thoroughly drying, apply your Moisturizing Hand Treatment for instant comfort and lasting moisturizing and protective benefits.
