Your Ultimate Guide To Hand Sanitizer
Hand Sanitizer spray is now an official item at Wynnya, and it is here to stay. And we are over the moon about it! Not only does it effectively kill 99.9% of common germs, but it also happens to be non-toxic and display-worthy with its beautifully packaged design.
First things first. To sanitize or not to sanitize? Turns out there are scenarios in which washing your hands is actually preferred to using sanitiser. Washing your hands is recommended over sanitising to clean dirt, grime, pesticides, heavy metals, and just about all germs. Sanitiser is primarily recommended when soap and water are not available, and to kill a host of germs. So be sure to bring along your sanitiser when making a grocery run or doing errands and stock your home with our Wynnya coconut & clay soap range for extra moisture or our new antibacterial liquid Handwash soap.
Next, take the time to wash your hands or use your hand sanitiser properly. If washing your hands, scrub the front and back of your hands, interlacing your fingers, scratching your palms to get under the nails, paying special attention to your thumbs and any rings or jewellery you might be wearing, as germs tend to latch onto jewellery. Hand washing should take a minimum of 20 seconds. To use your hand sanitizer, simply give each hand about two sprays each and rub your hands together for 20 seconds, taking time to ensure each hand is evenly covered. Selflove is applied here!
Once your hands are freshly cleaned, you may notice that they feel dry. This is actually a sign that practicing hand hygiene is working, because the drying effect helps to break the germs outer layer and killing them. But still, once the germs are killed, there’s no reason for your hands to remain dry. Using our restorative Wynnya Liquid Gold body oil can help to replenish skin moisture. The goodness doesn’t stop there. Body oils and carrier oils take things a step further by delivering antioxidants and nourishing fatty acids upon topical application, helping skin to look its very best. You can also prevent further skin dryness by refraining from washing your hands and using hand sanitiser back-to-back, as this is unnecessary. And ensure your hands are thoroughly dried before putting on gloves – the friction can cause irritation.
As lovely and useful as our hand sanitizer is, it has its limitations. One of those limitations is that, like all alcohol-based sanitisers, it lasts only a minute or two. This means, once the germs are killed, you can quickly re-contaminate your hands. How can you stay protected? Along with practicing hand hygiene, incorporate our immune supportive essential oil blend “Respiratory Help” into your routine. These blends are best inhaled using our variety of applications, like our personal inhalation stick, linen cloth, diffuser stone, room spray or body oil. And of course, be sure to wear a facial mask when going out in public, gloves when appropriate, and practice safe social distancing.
