Whether you’re furloughed, working from home or having to venture out regularly, keeping up good routines throughout the day can be tricky but is one way of maintaining your health during these unpredictable times. Here are some tips on how to stay as germ-free as possible.
Routinely washing your hands for at least 20-30 seconds with soap and warm water is widely regarded as one of the most effective ways of keeping yourself safe. Use bathroom, coffee and exercise breaks as a reminder of when to thoroughly wash your hands. Alternatively, hand sanitiser can also keep germs and viruses at bay and is easier for traveling and work. Keeping a Calypso Anti-Bacterial Gel 500ml on your desk or popping Calypso Anti-Bacterial Gel 100ml into a bag for outdoors means that you can quickly clean your hands on the go. Calypso’s Hand Hygiene Gel also contains aloe vera to retain the skin’s moisture levels and stop it from drying out.
