7 of the best hand washes for fighting germs and hydrating skin
As we approach the Easter long weekend and we take the (small) celebrations indoors, the want to do our part in flattening the curve will be at an all-time high. There's nothing quite like a set of public holidays to have us craving regular programming as soon as possible.
And while inventing the vaccine round the coffee table would be ideal, we can't forget one of the cheapest and easiest ways we can contribute to preventing the spread of COVID-19: Washing our hands!
Cold and warm water are equally effective in killing germs, as long as you are using SOAP! And, according to UNICEF, hands are one of the most common ways that the virus can spread from one person to the next.
For the full effect, we all need to be washing our hands with soap for 20-30 seconds, or by singing the full Happy Birthday song, twice.
If Happy Birthday isn't really your thing, you can now generate your own hand washing poster to the song lyrics of your choice, check it out here. We've made our own Harry Styles version to stick up next to the sink!
After all if it's something we're going to be doing anywhere upwards of five times a day, shouldn't we be keeping it as exciting as possible!?
Speaking of... if you take the smell, moisturising benefits and luxe-look of your hand wash seriously, you'll want to flick through our edit of the best below. Nothing will get you scrubbing quite like a softening, guava-scented, hand spa experience...
