Mastic, A Greek Isle Skin Care Ingredient, Helps Keep Hands Clean and Beautiful

How to Keep Your Hands Beautiful and Clean

We expose our hands to all kinds of bacteria during the day. From workout equipment to office elevator buttons, in handshakes, on grocery cart handles, handrails, doorknobs, and checkout pens while purchasing items are hands are exposed to germs. It’s important to wash your hands often to ward off harmful bacteria and viruses. When hand washing is not practical people often resort to hand sanitizers, which can dry out the hands. If you’re concerned about how to keep your hands beautiful and clean, check out the label of your hand cream. A vegan hand cream that moisturizes, protects, repairs and soothes your hands will help keep your hands looking beautiful, but what about clean?

YASOU vegan hand cream contains bacteria fighter mastic oil ensuring in-depth skin care and anti-ageing protection. This essential oil contains antibacterial and antifungal properties as well as antioxidants. The source of mastic oil is mastic trees Pistacia lentiscus, growing primarily in the southern part of the Greek island of Chios in the Aegean Sea. The resin is obtained from the tree’s bark. Once the resin is secreted from the bark it sets and dries upon exposure to air. It’s then collected by hand, washed and cleaned. It’s been known since ancient times that chewing the resin releases substances that freshen the breath and tighten the gums.

 

Which soap to choose

Another aspect of keeping hands clean and moisturized is the soap you use. An article in the journal Nature Chemical Biology states: “Antibiotics are now commonly found in many consumer cleansing products, including hand soap, body wash and dishwashing soap. In the United States in 2000, a survey showed that 45% of all consumer soaps, and more than 75% of liquid soaps, contained an antibiotic.” It points out that the potential risk of using such products is developing a resistance to the antibiotics. Triclosan is a major antibiotic used in consumer soaps.

Research shows and the Mayo Clinic reports that antibacterial soaps are not more effective than plain soap in killing disease-causing germs. When washing, rubbing your hands is a key step of cleaning. Liquid soap won’t spread germs between people the way a bar of soap does. After washing, we recommend applying YASOU vegan hand cream to moisturize and protect your hands.

 

Which drying method to choose

How you dry your hands after washing is important as well. Jet dryers are known to produce over 60 times more viral contamination than regular dryers using warm air. Paper towels transmit far less so should be your preferred choice when drying hands in public places.

Keeping your hands beautiful and clean is a balancing act. Wash your hands often to keep them clean and apply a vegan hand cream regularly throughout the day to keep them beautiful.
