We know, we know. At this point, you’re likely tired of being told about the importance of washing your hands. That said, it’s a reminder that merits repeating. Handwashing, along with wearing face mask and shield, is a crucial step in ensuring our health and safety as we face an ongoing pandemic.
But ICYDK, washing alone isn’t enough to keep you safe from health threats. There’s also the matter of *how* you actually wash your hands. If you’re the type to just lather soap on your palms, you're likely not cleansing the dirt and germs that burrow in your skin. Scary, right?
So pay attention, boys and girls! We break down the steps just to proper handwashing:
- After lathering soap, focus on scrubbing your palms.
- Check the backs of your hands. Those need attention, too!
- Really get in between your fingers. Dirt always gets trapped in there.
- Make sure to wash your thumbs and wrists.
- Don’t forget to check under your nails before you rinse.
If that sounds a lot to remember, we got the Candy Rookies to demo the #DoTheLifebuoy, a dance challenge that practically educates everyone on how to properly wash their hands. And while the steps might not be as simple as rubbing your hands with soap, the Rookies make it look so fun! Watch this:
Of course, the proper technique must also be complemented by a good antibacterial soap, like Lifebuoy. With regular use, it helps fight germs that thrive in your skin! It comes in a complete product line that has bar soap, liquid hand soap, and hand sanitizer, too.
