Benefits of Hand Wash - Natural & Organic for Sensitive Skin

Washing hands is a good practice as it avoids spreading germs to others. Germs can enter the human body when we touch our nose, face, mouth occasionally without realizing it. Preparing food with unwashed hands can also be a source for the germs to enter us when we consume food. Regularly touched surfaces like doorknobs, switch, taps, telephones carry germs around them and can be spread around the room through touch. It’s a message worth rehashing- Washing hands regularly is the best way to prevent illness and spread of infections to others. According to the Center for Disease Control, it is important to scrub away the germs with hand wash or sanitizer to prevent several diseases.

 

Ask this yourself: How many times do you wash your hands a day? Is the hand wash mild and gentle on your skin? Have you ever given a thought on the ingredients present in your hand wash? With a wide range of products storming the internet, it is necessary to understand the best hand wash suitable for your skin type. When it comes to your baby, you have to make it a habit of reading the label descriptions and watch out for the words Parabens, SLS, triclosan, alcohol etc.

 

Parabens are preservatives added to many personal care products to prevent bacterial growth and prolong shelf life. Exposure to Parabens levitates the estrogen levels in the body and potentially increases the risk of cancer. SLS stands for Sodium Lauryl Sulphate and is a foaming agent. Anything that foams, has a subsequent amount of SLS present in it. SLS can give rise to red itchy rashes, called Contact Dermatitis.

 

Alcohol can be hazardous if ingested. Since hand washes are placed at sinks that are within the reach of children, there is always a risk of alcohol poisoning. Using an Organic hand wash saves you from all this hassle, as it will keep your hands soft, moisturized and youthful with no side-effects.

 

Steps To Wash Your Hands The Right Way:-

  • Wet your hands with clean and pure running water.
  • Squeeze an adequate amount of hand wash into your hands and lather your hands by rubbing it together.
  • Don’t rush the process and scrub your hands for a minimum of 20 seconds. Wishing to keep a track of time? Hum the rhyme “twinkle twinkle little star” from beginning to end.
  • Rinse your hands well and dry them with a dry towel.
  • Ta-da! You have just killed millions of germs residing in your hands and taken the first step towards a healthy lifestyle.
