It’s a new year and you’re probably making mental resolutions to exercise more, eat better or be a nicer person. These are the typical promises we make ourselves every year that we hope we keep past a few weeks. To change things up a bit, what about doing something that helps you and others at the same time? Here are 5 easy things you can do to improve your hygiene and skin care and to help the public by reducing the spread of germs.
1. Always Wash Your Hands with Soap
Did you know that 1 in 5 people admit to not washing their hands after using the washroom and only 30% use soap! Don’t be one of them this year by making a commitment to proper handwashing every time. Next time you go to wash your hands, pretend someone is watching you and judging. Chances are they are! Apply soap then some water and lather your hands for at least 20 seconds before washing them off with water. Don’t worry if you have no hot water, handwashing is just as effective with cold water if you use soap.
New Year’s resolutions are notoriously dropped after a few months so try to think of these as a lifestyle change instead and make them a habit going forward. Not only will you BE more hygienic, you’ll make a good impression on your friends and colleagues, and that is infectious!
