We are all advised to follow government guidelines with the most important steps being:
- Constantly washing our hands
- Covering our mouths when coughing or sneezing
- Social distancing
Staying safe is important and will save many lives during these uncertain times.
Skin Care – Constantly washing your hands is it can lead to mild irritable skin conditions such as hand dermatitis due to excessive exposure to water. Over-washing our hands can also cause dry cracks in the skin, giving bacteria an entry point into our bodies, not to mention redness, itching, and flaking of the skin.
Being on the frontline should not mean essential workers have to ruin their skin or neglect their own personal care in the process. Washing hands should be immediately followed up with moisturising our hands.
Moisturising our hands regularly can prevent irritable skin conditions such as skin dermatitis and others mentioned above. Moisturising our hands after washing can also keep our hands deeply nourished, protected from harsh elements, and soft.
Help us to support our national heroes.
