Cold Tips

What's more beautiful than feeling, looking, & being your healthiest?

Most people know that hand washing is the best way to keep from catching a cold or spreading germs, & if you don't, just watch any TV special about getting sick.

For some tips for staying healthy & beautiful:

Did you know that using antibacterial soap doesn't necessarily do any more good than its simpler counterpart?  Some researchers believe that saturating our cleansers with antibacterial action is actually leading to strains of resistant bacteria.  So you can resist the urge to buy the most expensive, germ murdering cleansers, & instead follow these simple steps to avoid getting sick:
  • Wash your hands for at least 15 seconds
  • Throw away used tissues right away
  • Use a heavy duty cleanser/disinfectant to clean any potentially virus-containing surfaces (doorknobs, handles, phones, pens, light switches, etc.)
  • Try to limit your exposure to others when you, or they, are sick
