Here at Childs Farm we know a thing or two about keeping hands safe and soft, so we created a fun and easy routine to make sure your hands stay feeling great, even with all of the washing.
WASH for 20 seconds (at least)
We sing, mumble (or mutter!) Humpty Dumpty or Happy birthday twice, and follow the World Health Organisation guidelines on how to wash your hands: the goal is to make as many bubbles as possible all over your hands and wash every nook and cranny, even the backs of hands.
DRY for 20 seconds
As vital as a good wash, a clean, dry towel is essential to make sure that hands are fully dried, removing any remaining bacteria. Be prepared to wash towels more. And give everyone their own towel too – this gives little ones more responsibility and ownership of their cleanliness.
MOISTURISE for 20 seconds
Once clean and dry, moisturise hands all over with a quick- absorbing moisturiser or hand cream to make sure that skin cells are hydrated and plumped up to fight infection and to prevent irritation. Cracked and sore hands can allow bacteria to get in and cause infection, hands that are moisturised will allow cells to knit together and keep bacteria out.
