How To Stop Touching Your Face To Prevent Infection

March 05, 2020

stop touching your faceAuthor: Lily Mazzarella
Did you know you may be touching your face 20 times per hour (or more!)? And when you do, you often come into contact with a mucous membrane--ie, a point of entry for viruses and bacteria that cause illness. We LOVE this action-oriented, practical article that helps you put a stop to this unconscious and ingrained behavior.

According to the CDC, hand-washing is the number one way to rid oneself of disease-causing germs. Hand sanitizers containing at least 60% alcohol are a close second. But the recent coronavirus-induced run on all things anti-infective means that these products are sold out in most stores and online. Here is a recipe from The Oregonian on how to make your own hand sanitizer with aloe gel, essential oils (optional), and rubbing alcohol. Be sure to follow the recipe exactly to get the correct percentage for disinfecting your digits! Be aware that small children are not the best candidates for sanitizers, as they frequently put their hands into their mouths.


Common Sense Hand Hygiene

  • Be aware of high-touch common surfaces (doorknobs, touch screens, pens, etc). After coming into contact with one of these, wash your hands for at least 20 seconds (sing the Happy Birthday song!).
  • Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer while you’re out & about.
  • Bring your own pen for banks, restaurants & stores.
  • Cough & sneeze into the crook of your arm.
  • Elbow-bump instead of a handshake. Let’s get a new trend going!
  • Get a "face-touching" buddy at home and work so you can be alerted to this common, unconscious behavior.

LOVE!

Tried the lavender moisture cream this morning and it went on so beautifully, easy and almost satin-like. My face feels so nourished, soft it feels so good. Best moisturizer I have applied in a very long time.

Astaxanthin

This is my first time trying this product, and because I am taking it for inflammatory joint pain, I have seen some definite alleviation of my discomfort since I started taking it over a week ago. I am also taking it with Tumeric and Resveratrol (all three formulas twice a day), so I am not sure weather my relief is totally due to the Astaxanthin or the combination of herbs. Still I will continue along this path, since it is very much helping my hips and lower back. I would recommend others give it a try and if needed add the two additional anti-inflammatory combinations. I find it a better alternative to NSAIDs and other meds that cause gastric issues.

NERVE BALM IS AWESOME!!

NERVE BALM IS THE BEST PRODUCT THAT I HAVE FOUND TO WORK ON MY NEUROPATHIC PAIN AND I AM GLAD MY CHIRPRACTOR INTRODUCED TO ME THIS PRODUCT. THANK YOU.

Wonderful class

Isabella is a great teacher and inspires each of us to look at nature and our surroundings to infuse our skin with healing from our own creations. Thank you!

These liquid capsules are genius! Such an easy way to make hawthorne a daily tonic because I can easily take it with my other capsule supplements. The gel caps are easy to swallow. I've even punctured them before out of curiosity and the liquid tastes great. My grandmother started taking them as well because she doesn't like tinctures or tea based herbal remedies.. good alternative
