Hand Hygiene really matters.

There are DOs and DON’Ts to proper hand hygiene that are very important now. To all the germophobes, you are ahead on this. 

DO - Wash your hands after touching or cleaning after your pet. You betcha.

DO - Wash your hands before, during, and after making food. Again before you eat.  Plus a few more times.

DO - Of course wash your hands with soap for min 20 seconds. Cheating is no longer allowed.

DO - Keep your hand and dish towels separate and wash them daily. Better yet, use paper towel if you can find some. Yes, um yes.

DO - Disinfect things you touch like knobs, faucets, light switches, handles, TV remotes, all surfaces in your home, your phone. Often. Hmmm.

DON’T - Touch the soap, sink knobs or faucet until you rinse your hands with water. Of course.

DON’T - Touch anything after washing your hands or they are considered dirty again. Oh.

DON’T - Touch your face, ever. Very important.

DON’T - Think gloves are the answer. They can contaminate things you touch if not new or just washed. Don’t forget.

DON’T - Go anywhere without hand sanitizer. Got it.

Now you can practice good hand hygiene.

Don’t be fooled by the statement “all natural”

Many brands have been suspected of “greenwashing”. Since it’s becoming more important for many consumers to choose products that are healthy, brands have become clever in their marketing.

There is no official definition of “natural” skincare so be careful of these claims. Remember, the label reveals the true ingredients so always review the label. Ingredients are listed in descending order of concentration.

I used to be focused on the facts: black and white. Then after my corporate career, I discovered lots of other beautiful colors. The yellow that peace of mind can bring. The orange of relaxed confidence. All brought out through a commitment to self-care.  

I really wanted to help other women get excited about self-care by treating their bodies with respect. It needed to be something you could see AND feel. There were more colors out there for everyone to explore. You could close your eyes, smell and touch something beautiful. A guilt-free way to feel good about yourself. It was so simple and I knew everyone could do it!
