Washing your hands correctly

Hand hygiene is vital to protecting ourselves from contagious pathogens. Influenza, various colds, gastrointestinal infections and coronavirus are mainly transmitted by hand contact.

 

Clean your hands properly and effectively:


Hand washing is one of the most appropriate ways to protect yourself against illnesses and viruses - but it is almost certain that we do not wash them as long as needed.


        Wash your hands for at least 20-30 seconds. Germs can only be eliminated by effective and proper cleaning.
        Use soap! Water only removes some of the germs.
        Pay attention to the tips of the fingers and the gaps between the fingers, and the thumbs that are often "forgotten".

 

How often do we wash our hands?


        After using the toilet
        When you catch trash
        After coming into contact with the animals.
        Once we are back home.
        Before and after eating - especially during cooking and after contact with raw meat.
        Before and after contact with the elderly or patients.
        After coughing, sneezing or wiping your nose.
        After contact with doors or cabinets in public places.

 

Hand disinfectant


Many people use hand sanitizers to keep their hands clean on the go - especially in public places.

However, they should be based on milder variants than those found in hospitals, as aggressive hand sanitizers also kill the harmless germs the body needs to boost its own defenses.

This is why it is recommended that you use complementary skin care products afterwards to maintain moisture and hydration levels of the skin and not dehydrate.
