Wash Hands, Drink Water, Protect Yourself!

“Wash hands, drink water!” These are basics, but these two healthy habits are still the best ways to protect oneself from disease. 

Over the years, effective handwashing with soap has been found to significantly help reduce illness. The United States’ Center for Disease Control has found that washing hands regularly reduce the number of people who get sick with diarrhoea 23-40%, and incident of respiratory illnesses, like colds by 16-21%.

As for drinking water, studies have shown again and again that staying fully hydrated is key in staying in top physical and mental form. Some studies have shown even slight dehydration affecting overall moods, and even child development.

Germs spread quickly through touch, and they are everywhere. From touching body parts to surfaces to food. Washing hands often stops germs from spreading and becoming more deadly.

The U.S. Naval Health Research Center in San Diego did a study on this involving military recruits and found a significant drop in coughs and colds among them when they washed their hands at least five times a day.

How does hand washing protect us?

But for handwashing to be truly effective, you must do it properly, doctors say. Do you follow these steps when you wash your hands?
  • Wet your hands with water and apply soap.
  • Lather your hands with the soap. Spread the soap over the back of your hands, between your fingers, and under your nails.
  • Scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds. Sing the first few lines of the chorus of your favourite song to time it.
  • Rinse your hands.
  • Dry your hands by using a towel or air drying.
Don’t have an area to properly wash hands? You can use hand sanitizer like BioSilver 22 Gel, which is scientifically proven to have antibacterial and moisturising properties.

Hand sanitizers can also effectively clean your hands and stop the spread of germs. Simply apply the recommended amount on your hand and rub it over the surface of your skin for at least 20 seconds.

Alcohol generally dries skin, but BioSilver22 Gel’s SilverSol Technology helps not only sanitize, but moisturize. You stay clean, and your skin stays smooth too.
How does drinking water keep us healthy?

Water is key to our body processes. As we move and go about our day, water naturally expels from the body. Staying hydrated is important so the body can process and function normally. Studies have even found that staying hydrated can help treat kidney stones, improve digestion, and even aid weight loss.

To get the most out of the benefits of water, it’s important for it to be clean and safe. A high-quality filter like HomePure Nova water filtration system can remove impurities that endanger one’s health. It’s also environment friendly, as having a water filter saves you from buying bottled water.

Filtering water doesn’t just make it safe to drink, it can also make it safe to use. Filtered water can also help with keeping the face clean and prevents infections like the coronavirus from transmitting through surfaces such as the eyes and skin.

In times of great worry and stress, it always helps to go back to the basics. So, stay safe by doing this several times a day – wash hands, drink water!
