Incorrectly washing your hands can lead to a whole host of problems. These issues can range from collecting unwanted bacteria to damaged skin.
When we were all young we got those never-ending cries from our parents to wash your hands before tea. Perhaps now that message is more prevalent than ever. With the coronavirus pandemic sweeping the nation the call to wash our hands from the government remains ever-present.
The way you wash your hands must also not be ignored. Rubbing soap onto our palms, making sure the soap comes off and then stopping probably means there are still germ imposters lurking on your hands. It's paramount we make sure we take the time to scrub every nook and cranny of our hands. From the gaps in between our fingers to rubbing the fingernails on the other palm - no stone (or germ in this case) should be unturned.
What's equally important to the two points we've made so far is when to wash your hands. Before COVID washing our hands every few hours was almost something unthinkable. Now it''s recommended that after every time we come into contact with a public surface such as a door handle, card machine and a lift button we should wash our hands immediately after.
To conclude, washing your hands has never been so crucial. Therefore getting clued up on the topic can only be beneficial to us.
